April 23rd, 2024: Opioid Use Disorders: Meeting needs to support recovery

 

Presentation of research results

Opioid use disorders (OUD) and their impacts have increased in recent decades, affecting a heterogeneous group of people. It is estimated that a significant proportion of people affected by an OUD receive no evidence-based treatments to reduce the negative consequences of opioid use. A series of structural, clinical and individual obstacles hinder both access to treatment and continuation of treatment. Our work highlights different profiles of individuals with an OUD, as well as their needs, experiences, and recovery objectives, in order to provide services that are better adapted.

 

Speakers: 

  • Michel Perreault, PhD: Researcher at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute and an associate professor in the department of psychiatry at McGill University. He is also an adjunct professor in psychology (UQÀM) and in addiction (Université de Sherbrooke), as well as a researcher with the Institut universitaire sur les dépendances, the Réseau information scientifiques du Québec and the Québec Pain Research Networt.
  • Léonie Archambault, PhD: Researcher with the Institut universitaire sur les dépendances at the CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l’Île-de-Montréal. From
    2012 to 2013 she worked at the Douglas Research Centre on a number of opioid-related projects under the supervision of Michel Perreault

March 26th, 2024Remote Cognitive Interventions in Mental Health

Severe mental illness is associated with cognitive deficits that impact daily functioning and hinder recovery. The efficacy of psychosocial interventions that support cognitive health is well established, though not widely implemented. The use of digital technology gained some ground during the COVID-19 pandemic, improving access. This webinar will focus on the latest advances in this field.

 

  • DELPHINE RAUCHER-CHÉNÉ, MD, PhD:
    Dr Raucher-Chéné joined the Douglas Research Centre in May 2023 as a new clinician and researcher and has worked as a psychiatrist since 2010. Alongside her clinical work, she furthered her research training, completing a doctorate and a post-doctoral fellowship at McGill University / Douglas (from 2019 to 2021). Dre Raucher-Chéné also joined McGill University as an Assistant Professor in 2023. Her research program focuses on the development of a comprehensive understanding of the cognitive psychopathology of severe mental illness, across stages, from neuroimaging to remediation.

February 27, 2024The Why and How of Implementing Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs).

 

Angle of the webinar: presentation of research findings

 

Presentation in French
Question period in both languages

Cancer treatment can sometimes have side effects that aren’t sufficiently known or treated. One way to address these is to have all patients regularly complete standardized questionnaires about their side effects. These questionnaires are commonly referred to as Patient-Reported Outcome Measures or PROMs.The presentation will look at the e-IMPAQc project, which aims to roll out PROMs across Québec.

 

Speakers:

  • SYLVIE LAMBERT, RN, PHD.: Sylvie Lambert is an associate professor at the Ingram School of Nursing at McGill University and a researcher at St. Mary’s Research Centre. She is known nationally and internationally for her publications.
