What does "active offer" mean?
It means proactively providing service in the patient's preferred language, right from the beginning. In practical terms, it ensures that patients can express themselves and be served in the language with which they are most comfortable. In the field of health, the active offer not only enables patients to communicate more easily and be understood, it also enables professionals to provide secure, ethical, fair and good quality health care services, particularly in minority language communities.
The tool box includes a number of interesting resources on the following topics: issues and challenges of the active offer, characteristics of working in minority settings, the patient-centred approach, portraits of French-speaking minority communities, language and health, cultural competence and leadership.
The site also includes numerous resources in English.
