Media, and specifically newspapers, play a large role in the general public’s understanding of health issues. Consequently the presentation of health issues in media is the subject of academic study. A significant number of Canadian newspapers are published in French. Searching databases that contain content from French language Canadian newspapers presents some unique challenges. Nothing has been published on the use of Franco-Canadian newspapers as data sources for health studies, although some health studies have used them.
In this study, the concept of “physician assisted death” is used as a case study for determining the best resources and techniques for identifying health related articles in French language Canadian newspapers.
Outcomes of this study include analysis of retrieval, guidance on selection of relevant databases, a syntax guide for the databases and a French language search vocabulary for fin de vie et suicide médicalement assisté.
This poster was presented at the CHLA 2017 Conference and at the Open Ideas Symposium on December 12, 2017.
