Given Toronto’s linguistic diversity, the translation of the 8 TC LHIN demographic questions has been a priority since the mandated collection of patient and client demographic questions. Following the identification of the 10 most commonly interpreted languages in the TC LHIN, the forms went through a rigorous translation process in Arabic, French, Hungarian, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Tamil, and Vietnamese.
As a result, the 8 TC LHIN demographic questions are now available in English, French, and the 10 most commonly interpreted languages in the Toronto Central LHIN area. Hospitals and Community Health Centres can access all these forms under the ‘TC LHIN Hospitals’ and ‘TC LHIN CHCs’ headings below.
