Transcultural Consultation and Interpretation
Mission of the Transcultural Consultation and Interpretation
The sociocultural and linguistic diversity of the Geneva population means that there are many different cultural concepts of health and care, expressed by both patients and health professionals.
Therefore, it makes care more complex and can be a source of difficulties for the care provider.
According to its patient charter, HUG is committed to respecting the individuality, culture and beliefs of the patient and to ask his/her participation in all decisions concerning him/her. Our mission is to facilitate the care of patients with different languages and cultures at HUG and to do this via:
- Culture clarification: via the involvement of the Transcultural Consultation (FR)
- linguistic assistance: via the interpretation division (FR)
