In Canada, the prevalence of chronic diseases is increasing and is contributing significantly to health costs. Prevention and care of chronic diseases is a major preoccupation of our health system. The quality of communication between patients with chronic disease and their health care providers is recognized as playing an important role in the management of their illness. However, few tools have been developed to improve patient-professional communication, and even fewer in French. The goal of this research project is to evaluate the introduction of a French website, Discutons Santé, in the context of regular clinical follow-up, whose aim is to support collaboration between care staff and patients with chronic diseases. The project will take place in primary health care clinics in Quebec and New Brunswick. This project offers the potential to transform clinical practice and to improve the quality of care offered to patients with chronic diseases.
