Working in partnership in health and social services: a team testifies to its success

A literacy facilitator, a literacy patient-partner and a researcher share their inspiring stories of partnership, equity, diversity and inclusion.

In this video, Amélie Bouchard, a literacy facilitator at La Jarnigoine, Carole Dupuis, a patient and literacy student, and Christine Loignon, a research professor at the Université de Sherbrooke, share an inspiring testimonial demonstrating the relevance of partnership, equity, diversity and inclusion.

The trio has been working together for years on various projects in the spirit of the ENGAGE project. Ms. Dupuis is involved in a number of other initiatives, notably raising awareness among future doctors of the reality of people affected by social inequality, precariousness or poverty, social exclusion or low literacy.

Involving silent communities in research and the network

Discover how we can enrich each other. Everyone has color and expertise to share. The ENGAGE platform shares methods for engaging people and communities affected by social inequality, poverty or precariousness, social exclusion and low literacy.

Involving everyone from the outset is the key to changing the way things are done in the health and social services network. In a learning healthcare system, all forces come together to eliminate working in isolation. A partnership is formed between:

  • Research
  • Health care
  • Social services
  • Management
  • Population
