Request to participate in research survey on caring for racialized gender-diverse people

Posted on March 10, 2022, 10:22 a.m.

Hello RNIG - Rainbow IG colleagues:

We have received a request from a Master's student in nursing. I have reviewed the detailed information she shared with me and her ethics approval documentation from the University of Ottawa obtained in autumn 2021. And everything I have read meet the requirements for her research to moving into recruitment of participants.  

Here is an excerpt from her request. 


“My name is Julia Melisek, and I am an MScN student at the University of Ottawa. I am conducting a study on the cultural humility of nurses to care for racialized gender-diverse populations. The study is surveying nurses of all classes in Ontario.” 

Julia is seeking RNs, RPNs and NPs to participate in a 15 minute online survey to support this study. You'll find more information and a link and QR code to access the survey in the attached PDF poster. You will have access to her research results.

Or, please click on this link to participate in the survey via this link:

Please note that the survey is available in English only.

Please consider also circulating this email to other nursing colleagues in Ontario for wider feedback on this research topic. You can circulate this email to any nursing colleagues (RNs, RPNs, NPs) that you want in Ontario.
