Canada Research Chair in Shared Decision Making and Knowledge Translation

Visit from the Canadian Minister of Health

On March 12, we received a visit in Quebec from the federal Minister of Health, the Honourable Ms. "Ginette Petitpas Taylor", at the University Family Medicine Group (UFMG) in Saint-François d'Assise Hospital, one of 12 clinical care, teaching research sites attached to the Department of Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine at Université Laval. She was welcomed by the director of the Department, Dr. Guy Béland, and by the director of the Family Medicine Group, Dr. Johanne Blais. The Group is also part of the CIUSSS de la Capitale Nationale, which was represented by Director of Academic and University Affairs Mr. Martin Lafleur. We had the opportunity to present and discuss the work of the Université Laval Primary Care Research Network as well as our work at the Canada Research Chair on Shared Decision Making and Knowledge Translation. The meeting was enriching for all.
