The Health Care Access for Linguistic Minorities Network (HCALM Network), an interdisciplinary, interinstitutional community of researchers seeking to understand patient-practitioner communication and its impact on the delivery of healthcare and social services, has launched a call for papers and proposals for research projects.
Administered by the McGill Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project which aims to make health and social services more accessible to English-speaking Quebecers, the HCALM-Network investigates communication between patients and health professionals and how the use of a second language by the professional poses a potential language barrier that may compromise equitable access to health care.
The HCALM Network is currently accepting research projects that focus on investigating the relationship between language and access to healthcare or social services and is also seeking submissions for its 2017 annual conference on the topic of “Language and Health – Ethical and Policy Issues.” The deadline for submissions for both projects is April 9, 2017.
