: The study was approved by the University of Toronto’s University of Toronto Research Ethics Board (REB Protocol #39432). All methods were carried out in accordance with relevant guidelines and regulations.Informed consent was obtained from all participant. All participants were sent a copy of the consent form by email prior to the focus groups. Most participants read and signed the informed consent form and returned the consent to the research assistant and/or primary investigator by email prior to the start of the interviews. Verbal informed consent was obtained from a few participants prior to the start of the interview. The University of Toronto’s University of Toronto Research Ethics Board approved the procedure of obtaining verbal informed consent due to the virtual nature of focus group and instances where the participant did not have access to a fax machine, scanner, or had technical difficulties returning the consent form electronically. The consent form was orally reviewed at the start of the interviews. Our sample included highly trained healthcare professionals who are all versed in consent processes, therefore, there were no concerns of receiving verbal consent.
