Réseau Santé launched a survey for Nova Scotia’s Acadian and francophone community in order to better understand their experiences with health care services in French. The survey deals with active offer of health care services in French and how requests for them are handled in facilities run by the Nova Scotia Health Authority and the IWK Health Centre. Active offer of health care services refers to a regular and permanent service offering to the minority Acadian and francophone population in their language.
Analysing the responses from the survey will allow Réseau Santé to work with its partners, such as the Nova Scotia Health Authority, the IWK Health Centre and the Department of Health and Wellness, to improve health care services in French.
“The information that members of the community provide us with is very valuable to us and will help us determine Réseau Santé’s future strategic direction,” said Gisèle Thibodeau, president of Réseau Santé. “We encourage Acadians and francophones living in all parts of Nova Scotia to complete the survey.”
Members of the community can make their way to www.reseausantene.ca/survey to fill out the survey in French or in English until June 22, 2018.
