Migration of Nurses through the Live-in Care Caregiver Program Study Invitation

  1. 0
    Dear Potential Participant,

    I am writing to invite you to participate in a research study to explore the experiences of internationally educated nurses who came (or are planning to come) to Ontario through the Live-in Caregiver Program. The study is being conducted by Bukola Salami, a doctoral candidate at the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing, University of Toronto, under the supervision of Dr. Sioban Nelson.

    Research on internationally educated nurses in Ontario has found that nurses who come to Ontario through the Live-in Caregiver Program face significant barriers to becoming registered to practice. This research study seeks to know the experiences of nurses who come to Ontario through the Live-in Caregiver Program. The findings from this research study will help inform policy on the integration of internationally educated nurses in Ontario. To be eligible for this study, you must:

    Be an Internationally Educated Nurse.
    Have completed a minimum of 2 years nursing education in the Philippines.
    Have migrated or planning to migrate to Canada through the Live-in Caregiver Program.
    Either be currently living in Ontario or have lived in Ontario in the past. (This criterion does not apply to individuals who have not yet arrived in Canada.).
    Speak and understand English Language

    Participation in this study will involve attending an interview session at a time and place that is good for you. The interview will take approximately 1.5 hours and will be audiotaped (i.e. recorded). During the interview, you may be asked to discuss your immigration experience, your experience while in the Live-in Caregiver Program, your experience with the nursing registration process and your views on the responsibilities of policy makers, recruiters, employers and support groups, towards nurses who come to Canada to work as live-in caregivers. You will also be asked to complete a demographical profile form. The form includes information on your age, gender, nursing education, nursing experience, immigration status, and nursing registration status. You will receive a $20 gift card as a token of appreciation for your time. The information you provide during the study will be kept confidential.

    If you are interested in participating or hearing about this study, please contact Bukola Salami at 416 416-978-1578 or bukola.kolawole @ utoronto.ca. You are under no obligation to participate in this study. However, your participation will be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you
