Official Language Minority Communities in Ontario:
Understanding the Lived Experiences of Francophone Patients and their Nursing Care Providers

You are invited to participate in an interview for a study regarding the experience of registered nurses, nursing students and Francophone patients with respect to the services and health care provided to French-speaking official language minority communities in Ontario. We are looking for French-speaking patients who have sought health care in Ontario.

We want to speak to Francophone or bilingual residents of Ontario who would prefer to receive French language health care services in Ontario. Participants will be selected on a first come, first served basis. Your participation will consist of taking part in an interview, expected to be about one (1) hour in length. The interview may take place in person, over the phone, or by teleconference. The interview may be held in French or in English, whichever you prefer.

The interview will be guided by a list of questions and discussion items. You may skip any question that you do not want to answer. Participation in this study is strictly voluntary. This study will allow for greater understanding of the realities of health care provision to French-speaking minority patient populations in Ontario, looking at the perspectives of registered nurses, nursing students, and Francophone patients.

This project has received Research Ethics Board (REB) approval from the University of Ottawa. If you have any questions or require more information about the study, please do not hesitate to contact the primary investigator, Mwali Muray ([email protected]), or her research supervisor, Dr. Julie Chartrand ([email protected]) and Dr. Amélie Perron ([email protected]).

Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
