SLS’s Interpreter Code of Conduct aligns with the core values of beneficence, fidelity, and respect for the awareness of cultural differences as outlined in the National Code of Ethics for Health Care Interpreters. Health care interpreters are privy to confidential and personal information between patients and their care providers, and therefore must demonstrate ethical behavior at all times. Interpreters are encouraged to take an “invisible” approach, strictly communicating information between parties.
