In this systematic review, the authors synthesized evidence on the impact of professional interpreters on outcomes for hospitalized children from migrant and refugee families with limited English proficiency. The authors conclude that while video and in-person interpreters are more favorable for some outcomes, use of a professional interpreter of any mode was superior to the use of an ad hoc interpreter, or to no interpreter at all.
