I know you want to connect with your Spanish speaking patients, but…
- vYour words in Spanish don’t have the precision you would like them to have.
- ZYou would love to build a relationship with them, but language and culture is an uncrossable line.
- You find it hard for other colleagues to understand the dynamics exclusively of Palliative Care.
I hear you!
I see your worries and fears, but there is hope!
I am Daniela. When I became a translator and an interpreter, I knew I had to do something to help people with the skills I had.
In the 7 years I spent working in hospitals, I saw how healthcare professionals gave it all for their patients and how taxing it was to deliver devastating news. Many times, without success they struggled to connect with patients that spoke another language.
It isn’t a matter of words, it is about understanding the patient’s culture, their family, their needs. It’s about finding the right words in the right setting for the right person.
That’s what needed to change.
In Connected Care, I do just that. I connect clinicians with patients with words that show compassion, care, help, even when there are many reasons to feel devastated.
In my blog, you’ll find resources that will allow you to bridge the gap of language and culture.
The linguistic part of the collaboration with Daniela has always been exquisite, moreover, I can testify to her professionalism as a Business Partner – high responsiveness, on-time delivery, and following all the project instructions. Daniela is very proactive, reaching out with additional comments or pertinent observations, helping AP assure top-notch quality of our services. Thank you, Daniela, for going above and beyond and setting such high cooperation standards!“
I started running back in 2011.
Even though you will find me running by my neighborhood during the week, my true love is trail running.
I consider myself an ultrarunner (any distance over 26.2 miles).
How many marathons and ultras have I run? 20.
What’s the longest distance I have conquered? 100 miles
I have a great companion, his name is Loki, my lab-rat terrier mix dog.
I adopted Loki at the Nebraska Humane Society after he was abandoned by his previous owners.
Let’s be honest: he is spoiled and a good boy.
Loki is also a runner. His longest distance has been 10 miles. He dislikes road running, so you will only find him in the trails.
It’s always perfect to go camping or backpacking.
I love connecting with nature whenever possible. Waking up in a tent with the sound of birds chirping at 6 AM has no comparison.
Mother nature has amazing hidden gems that you can only access by foot. That’s my best excuse to just walk a few miles with my backpack (including Loki) and set camp next to a lake with crystal waters at the foot of a hill.
