The National Ageing Research Institute’s (NARI) MINDSET project (Improving interpreting for dementia assessments) has developed a training package specifically to support interpreters who work with people with dementia or interpret for cognitive assessments.

NARI are seeking interpreters to participate in a randomised control trial of the training, to evaluate whether it is effective. For the purpose of the trial, NARI are only seeking Certified or Certified Provisional Interpreters with at least 6 months experience in the following languages:

  • Arabic

  • Italian
  • Mandarin
  • Vietnamese.

Participation is free and online. If you take part in the trial you will be given access to the training and, if you complete it, can claim NAATI continuing professional development points.
