Welcome to the CPSS Physician Language Services Survey!


Patients, especially children and the elderly, usually feel more comfortable expressing themselves in their mother tongue, and even more so when they are not feeling well.

They will often seek medical care from physicians who are able to communicate, at least to some degree, in their language.
They may feel better understood by the individual on whom they depend for quality medical care.  Familiarity, trust and a sense of connection with a medical provider can also help reduce stress with regards to procedures that can otherwise seem strange or even frightening. 

From a physician's viewpoint, speaking in the mother tongue can also be useful for ensuring informed consent.

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan encourages you to register your language proficiencies through this survey.  Your answers will be posted on your profile page on the College website within 3-4 weeks after we receive your survey profile.  Further changes can be made at any time to your profile by contacting the College's communications department at communications@cps.sk.ca .

Thank you for participating in our survey. Your feedback is important.
