Week 6

This week I wanted to highlight the importance and difficulty of recording and translating the responses that were in Spanish. I feel like it is important to make sure all voices of multiple backgrounds are heard. If we focus research on a particular group, the population will not gain maximum benefits when trying to solve problems in an attempt to improve the conditions of health systems/programs/institutions.

Although this process was necessary, it had some challenges. It was hard enough recording some responses that were in English because some of the handwriting was not legible. However, since I am familiar with the English language I was able to make out a lot of what the words were. On the other hand, since I am not as familiar with Spanish, it made more difficult to make out what they were saying if the handwriting was not legible.

Overall, I believe I was able to correct most of the information correctly and convey the frustrations of the patients.
