On June 1st, the 40th edition of the Colloque Jean-Yves Rivard took place, and the Quebec Network on Nursing Intervention Research (RRISIQ) was a proud partner of the event.
The colloquium, which was held both in webcast format and in person at the Pierre-Falardeau Amphitheater of the Centre hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal (CHUM), brought together 116 decision-makers, clinicians, managers, patients, researchers, and students from various Quebec academic and clinical settings.
Throughout the day, participants had the opportunity to attend four panel discussions, where 19 invited panelists engaged in interdisciplinary exchanges about the challenges and future prospects of primary healthcare in Quebec. Several regular members of RRISIQ were among the panelists. They emphasized the importance of full and proactive engagement to optimize interprofessional collaboration and patient participation in decision-making. While different models of healthcare organization exist, the panelists also highlighted the importance of working with available resources while seeking to improve them to meet the evolving needs of patients. The discussion also focused on leveraging the complementarity of services by reviewing the offerings of local community service centers (CLSC) and family medicine groups (GMF).
The 40th anniversary of the Colloque Jean-Yves Rivard was commemorated with a cocktail reception at the end of the day. The 41st edition of this event will be proposed in spring 2024.
