The compassionate community aims to improve the quality of life of people at the end of life and their loved ones by promoting collaboration between community and health system actors. The Chair is leading a five-year action research project on the design, implementation and evaluation of two pilot compassionate communities in Quebec.
Quebec’s Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) Unit aims to support the integration of patients and members of the public as research partners (identification of research priorities and issues, integration of patients, caregivers and citizens as researchers in research teams, scientific communication by and for citizens). The Chair leads the scientific component of the Unit’s research strategy on partnership with patients and the public, supporting methodological and scientific innovations in the field (eg frameworks and tools for evaluating patient engagement in research).
The mission of the Centre of Excellence on Partnership with Patients and the Public (CEPPP) is to develop the science and practice of partnering with patients and the public to improve the healthcare system and overall population health. The Center of Excellence was co-founded in 2016 by the Canada Research Chair in Partnership with Patients and Communities (CRCHUM) and the Direction collaboration et partenariat patient (Faculty of Medicine, Université de Montréal). The Chair particularly supports the Center’s scientific activities (eg. database and research infrastructures, monitoring and scientific animation, training in partnership research).
