    mentale Méthodes La présente étude s intègre dans le cadre de VideoCom un projet de recherche collaborative qui explore les utilisations des technologies de l information et des communications TIC par les communautés des Premières Nations des régions rurales et éloignées Cette étude a été réalisée avec l aide de Keewaytinook Okimakanak KO notre partenaire du nord ouest de l Ontario Au printemps 2010 une équipe formée de membres du personnel de KO et de chercheurs de VideoCom a visité les deux communautés avec l entière collaboration de leurs dirigeants En utilisant une approche de recherche participative nous avons interrogé 59 membres de ces communautés sur leur expérience avec les technologies plus particulièrement sur leur point de vue à propos de la télésanté mentale Une analyse thématique de ces données qualitatives ainsi qu une analyse quantitative descriptive de l information recueillie ont révélé la diversité des points de vue des membres des communautés Enfin d après une discussion avec le personnel en télésanté mentale des communautés une section intitulée Pistes desolution a été proposée comme moyen d amorcer la résolution de certains problèmes soulevés par les membres des communautés Résultats Cet article analyse le continuum des points de vue des membres des communautés qui vont de l intérêt et l enthousiasme à l hésitation et l inquiétude Une participante ayant utilisé les services de télésantémentale a indiqué que cette approche l avait aidée à se sentir plus à l aise avecle processus thérapeutique D autres participants ont exprimé des préoccupations quant à la pertinence et à la sécurité de cette approche Une foule d avantages tels que l utilité la facilité de communication et un meilleur accès aux services ainsi que d inconvénients ou de préoccupations comme l interférence avec le renforcement des capacités et la confidentialité sont ressortis des discussions À la suite d une procédure de codage une analyse quantitative descriptive a révélé que 47 des participants avaient une opinion favorable à la télésanté mentale que 32 avaient une opinion défavorable à ce sujet et que 21 étaient indécis ou avaient une opinion neutre par rapport à la télésanté mentale Conclusions La valorisation du savoir autochtone peut nous aider à comprendre l expérience des membres des communautés par rapport à la télésanté mentale et leurs préoccupations à ce sujet et à mettre en place des initiatives plus efficaces et appropriées Grâce à la précieuse collaboration des coauteurs de Keewaytinook Okimakanak Telemedicine nous proposons des pistes desolution aux préoccupations soulevées par les membres des communautés Plus important encore nous reconnaissons que les pistes de solution liées aux initiatives communautaires de télésanté mentale doivent être prises en charge par les communautés Cliquez ici pour la version anglaise de cette publication Publication 31 Publication 28 F 2011 avril Les technologies des communications pour

Technologies for Focus Groups with Remote Communities A Case Study of Research with First Nations in Canada Qualitative Research 11 2 159 175 Résumé Les technologies des communications offrent aux chercheurs spécialisés dans la recherche qualitative davantage d options pour effectuer des recherches avec les communautés éloignées Il n est pas toujours possible pour les chercheurs de se rendre dans ces communautés pour réaliser des entretiens et diriger des séances de discussion en personne plus particulièrement lorsque les déplacements requièrent beaucoup de temps et d argent Cette raison est souvent invoquée pour expliquer l absence de recherches qualitatives avec des participants vivant dans des communautés des Premières Nations autochtones des régions éloignées du Canada Cet article présente une étude de cas réalisée selon une approchede recherche élaborée en collaboration avec K Net et KORI Keewaytinook Okimakanak nos partenaires du nord ouest de l Ontario L étude portait sur les préférences en matière d information en ligne sur la santé des membres des communautés des Premières Nations des régions éloignées En collaboration avec K Net nous avons élaboré une approche afin d utiliser la visioconférence multisite avec des groupes de discussion ce qui a permis des échanges audio et visuels en direct entre la chercheuse à Ottawa et les participants de plusieurs communautés des Premières Nations des régions éloignées Dans notre conclusion nous encourageons d autres chercheurs à essayer cette approche novatrice afin d inclure dans les projets de recherche participative

  • Course Outline | FirstMile
    In this topic we shift our focus on Indigenous peoples to explore some of the big picture questions involved in technology development more generally We will introduce some of the theories around these issues Science and Technology Studies is an academic field of study that explores the ways that people interact with technologies In particular the theory of the social shaping of technology offers us a way to think about these processes We discover that technologies are impacted by both social action and physical constraints Critical authors like Robert McChesney show us how power is always involved in the ways that technologies are designed and used The social shaping approach to studying technology does not reflect a level playing field Instead it is structured as a field of conflict and compromise between different groups from powerful multinational corporations to local communities Topic 5 The network society and development of broadband networks and applications Introducing the Kukenah Network Sociologists are researching how the social shaping of technology plays out across political economic cultural and social contexts As broadband networks and applications increasingly saturate our lives they are being shaped and re shaped by different forces that reflect many of the inequalities that persist in our offline lives In this section we explore these issues and look at how people are taking on their own technology development projects Topic 6 Putting the last mile first Digital divides and alternatives As we have seen throughout this course powerful forces established in the past continue to shape the ways that our societies and communities are structured today The network society contains many inequalities The term digital divides describes the challenges that some individuals and groups face in accessing broadband networks and digital technologies However these challenges do not dictate the futures of individuals or communities Rather they are opportunities and constraints that can be negotiated and re shaped through people s innovation and creativity In this unit we will learn more about the First Mile approach which focuses on how people are addressing digital divides through community driven technology development projects Indigenous peoples around the world including remote and rural First Nations in Canada are actively engaged in bridging the digital divides they face In doing so they are putting the last mile first Topic 7 Supporting First Mile initiatives Community based and indigenous research methods In this unit we cover community based research methods with a focus on research with Indigenous communities The goal of this approach is to consider how these research methods can support First Mile development initiatives Conditions of settler colonialism and the historical role of social scientists and other researchers in supporting them informed reforms that resulted in unique approaches to research Community based Indigenous research projects stress collaboration outcomes benefit communities as well as researchers and the institutions they work for In Canada this approach is captured in principles like Ownership Control Access and Possession OCAP and reflected in partnerships between Indigenous and university based researchers These projects
