Summary:Better understand the format doctors use to write up their reports. Identify the structure and language of SOAP notes and medical charts to better narrow down unknown acronyms and abbreviations. Build a set of medical- and language-specific resources to negotiate technical medical reports.
Description
Progress notes and patient records are the medical translator’s bread and butter—but this does not prevent even the most seasoned medical translators from getting burnt. We will take a closer look at the SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan) format to understand how doctors think. We will use the tool to understand why “BS” could mean “blood sugar,” “breath sounds,” or “bowel sounds”, and we will build a kit of multilingual resources for the review of systems, lab reports, etc. Finally, we will address capturing succinct source-language style in a translation that is meaningful and not unduly conservative.
Target audience
Translators already specialising in medical translation.
Translators considering crossing over into medical translation.
Terminologists who want to expand their medical knowledge.
