The Southern Saskatchewan/Urban Aboriginal Health Coalition is an interdisciplinary, intersectoral team of researchers and communities dedicated to exploring culturally respectful care in Aboriginal communities. Through a community-based research approach, the communities and the Coalition used sharing circles to determine the key elements that 2 Saskatchewan Aboriginal communities see as requisite for culturally competent care. Through triangulation and thematic analysis, 9 initial themes and 4 broad thematic groupings were derived. The lessons from this study could inform further research with these communities and other culturally diverse groups with respect to cultural competency in terms of both health-care providers and health services.

La Southern Saskatchewan/Urban Aboriginal Health Coalition est une équipe interdisciplinaire et intersectorielle de chercheurs et de communautés voués à l'étude de modes de prestation des soins sensibles aux valeurs culturelles autochtones. Prenant appui sur un modèle de recherche communautaire, on a tenu des cercles de parole auxquels ont participé les membres de deux communautés autochtones de la Saskatchewan dans le but de déterminer les éléments qu'ils considèrent comme essentiels dans la prestation de soins bien adaptés à leur culture. La triangulation et l'analyse thématique ont permis de dégager neuf thèmes initiaux et quatre grandes thématiques. L'étude présente des enseignements susceptibles de guider de futurs travaux de recherche auprès des communautés concernées et d'autres groupes culturellement diversifiés, particulièrement en ce qui a trait au savoir-faire culturel aussi bien des prestataires de soins que des services de santé.

    Currently published issues of the CJNR (1969-2015) are being moved to the McGill online archives where they will be hosted in perpetuity. This migration should be completed by Spring 2016. During this transition, all issues of CJNR remain accessible to our readers as before:

    1) Past issues of CJNR from 2003 to December 2015 through ingentaconnect.

    2) Issues from 2002 to 1969 can be accessed through the CJNR digital archive.

    We understand that this is a significant change. Please be confident that all parties are working diligently to make this a seamless transition that will further advance the scope and impact of CJNR.

    Thank you.
