Best Practice Guidance for Communication Professionals in Healthcare Settings during COVID-19 2020

ASLI Best Practice Guidance Document

These guidelines are issued for communication professionals, by ASLI, in collaboration with RAD, SignHealth, BSMHD and ASLI’s Deaf Interpreter Network (DIN). They are issued in accordance with the NRCPD Code of Conduct in relation to maintaining and developing practice in line with recognised standards of the profession (Article 4.1). They have been produced in response to deaf and deafblind sign language users being adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, due to access to information in their first or preferred language, typically British Sign Language (BSL) in the UK, being significantly reduced in all areas of their lives.
