: Ethical research and publication approvals were obtained from the Research Ethics Board at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Canada on June 10, 2019 (reference number: 19-0085-E). Research participants were informed that they were voluntarily consenting to participate in a research study in an introductory email prior to the interview. We ensured that data was collected anonymously, and participants were not overly burdened or pressured to participate. We obtained informed consent to participate from all participants with either a written consent form or verbal consent process. The verbal consent process was approved by the Research Ethics Board at Mount Sinai Hospital and allowed participants who did not have the time or ability to sign the written consent form to participate in the research. The verbal consent process consisted of the researchers reading a pre-written script that informed participants of the research aims and every aspect of their participation in the research. This consent process was audio recorded and recorded in a written log detailing that all participant questions were answered, a copy of the consent form was provided to the participant, and verbal consent was obtained. All methods, including data analysis and storage, were performed in accordance with Mount Sinai Hospital guidelines.
