Researchers at Montfort edit a scholarly publication on health care training in Canada

Ottawa, August 31, 2015 – Researchers and clinicians affiliated with Hôpital Montfort and its research institute have just edited a book on professional development in the primary health care professions published by the Presses de l’Université du Québec.

This is the first time that Montfort and its research institute have played such a prominent role in a scholarly publication.

Entitled Le développement professionnel en soins de santé primaires au Canada : Nouveaux défis, the book is a collection of texts ranging from philosophical treatises to practical guides and reports on research results. It shows the scope and depth of Canada’s interprofessional development process and lays the groundwork for understanding professional development in primary care situations, including the concept of collaborative practice.

The work was co-published under the supervision of:

  • Dr. Julie Gosselin, clinical psychologist, adjunct professor of clinical psychology at the School of Psychology, Faculty of Science, University of Ottawa, and associate researcher at the Institut de recherche de l’Hôpital Montfort (IRHM);
    Dr. Paul Greenman, clinical psychologist, full professor of clinical psychology at the Université du Québec en Outaouais and IRHM-affiliated researcher; and,
    Dr. Mélanie Joanisse, clinical psychologist with the Clarence-Rockland Family Health Team.

In all, over 30 health professionals, many of them affiliated with Montfort or the IRHM, helped write the book. “This book is a unifying force within our research and practitioner community, and will enhance Montfort’s influence within the Francophonie, especially in Canadian health fields,” said Dr. Denis Prud’homme, Director of the Institut de recherche de l’Hôpital Montfort.

Hôpital Montfort is a Francophone academic health care institution that provides quality care in both official languages and works with its partners to improve the health of communities.
