Abstract

The mixed-methods study identified healthcare professionals’ and Deaf patients’ preferences on Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) and in-person interpreting. The study found both groups preferred in-person interpreting for critical care, and proposed hospital stakeholders not to popularize VRI at 100% but to allocate funding for in-person interpreting for appropriate clinical situations.
