The objective of this qualitative research was to investigate hospital based health educators’ roles, strengths and challenges in the multicultural city of Toronto. Data collection was generated from one focus group and 15 individual interviews with health educators presently practicing in hospital settings for more than two years. The research results evidence a strong demand for health educators in health care settings; however, their effectiveness is primarily impeded by lack of organizational support and innovative educational materials. The results emphasize effective, culturally appropriate and technology focused health education to provide relevant health information to a multicultural community such as Toronto.
