Annual report 2015 - 2016
During the year, we celebrated 35 years of CRCHUS health discoveries. Also, the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé (FRQS) – funded operating grant of the CRCHUS was renewed this year, for which we were awarded a rating of «excellent».
These facts reflect the dynamism of CRCHUS researchers. We will continue deploying efforts to maintain and increase this level of efficiency.
Creation of the Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research: CRCHUS joins the Network!
Two Sherbrooke teams, led by Dr. André Carpentier and Louis Gendron, will receive a five-year investment of $50 million from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and several partners for the creation of pan-Canadian research networks in the fight against diabetes and its complications and in the fight against chronic pain.
Patients and their families together with the research teams will develop research projects that focus on their concerns and needs.
Caring for people with chronic diseases
Researchers Dr. Catherine Hudon and Maud-Christine Chouinard developed a first-line case management intervention in family medicine groups in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region, aimed at heavy users of health care services with chronic disease. Their research results, published in the November 2015 issue of Annals of Family Medicine, demonstrate that patients and their families noted an improvement in access to care and coordination, better communication, greater involvement in decisions about their health, and a better transition of their care as a result of the study.
