Training to help you understand and better serve your Acadian and francophone patients

If you already have a career that you enjoy, training and developing new knowledge to better serve patients is something you already know.

Réseau Santé Nouvelle-Écosse has developed for you – students, health professionals, health care facility manager, volunteers – this training platform.

Our goal: you provide the tools to recognize, understand and better serve the Francophone and Acadian patients that you meet daily.


Patient safety, language and active offer

Discover the essential difference to the patient when their language is taken into account and become a champion for more equitable health care for minority communities.

Patient Safety integrating the active offer with an interprofessional approach

J’ai apprécié l’atelier et le fait d’apprendre et d’emporter une meilleure compréhension de l’importance des barrières linguistiques.

Simulated patient in language competence

Students across Canada have an incredible opportunity because with your help, they will be able to work on their language skills through encounters with simulated patients.
