The study was conducted in a GDH in a Canadian city. Data were gathered from a discussion group and from individual semistructured interviews with 13 health care providers and 5 patients. Charts were reviewed to gather demographic data and confirm provider activities. A reflexive approach was conducted whereby each care provider reviewed and modified the role description created from information provided during his or her interview. Themes were determined through constant comparative analysis of transcripts, which included 5 meetings of the research team.
