SEMPHN Persona Nicholas - Illustration of middle aged man smilingWe are looking for storytellers who are willing to join us for an interview about their health experiences. 

We call these stories 'Personas'. 

Personas a representation of real people whose experiences are also faced by others. Their stories provide us with greater insight into the obstacles some members of our community face when they navigate the health system when challenged by health, social or economic experiences.

Understanding these challenges ensures we keep real people at the centre of our service design.

How will my story be used?

This interview will be recorded.

We de-identify each persona by removing any information which could indicate that this is your specific experience.

In the end product, the interviews will be shown as a series of presentations or videos including audio interviews, quotes, and illustrations to portray stories.

Personas will be made available publicly through our social media channels, in our annual report and videos on our Vimeo channel, which means they can be viewed by anyone.
