COVID-19 has disrupted life in Quebec and around the world. Because our vision supports a learning health system—one that integrates research into practice and bases decision-making on the experiences of patients, health and social services professionals and managers—we are more determined than ever to support a shift in the culture of our health care system.
The Unité de Soutien SSA Québec is connected with the Quebec COVID – Pandemic Network (QCPN), an initiative of the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé. The main objective of the QCPN is to create an environment of close collaboration to coordinate research efforts, prioritize actions and accelerate discoveries and their application to infections caused by SARS-CoV-2.
The Unité de Soutien SSA Québec, in collaboration with its specialists, offers a range of tools, expertise and training dedicated to supporting patient-oriented research in the context of this pandemic.
