About us
Network Membership
RRISIQ boasts several researcher members (regular, associate) from four different academic institutions: McGill University’s Ingram School of Nursing, the University of Montreal’s Faculty of Nursing, the University of Sherbrooke’s School of Nursing, and University Laval’s Faculty of Nursing. Student members, many of whom are RRISIQ fellows, form an integral part of the Group and ensure its future. Outside these academic arenas, the network is also able to rely on clinicians and clinical decision makers, also considered within the associate members.
