Nursing Research Laboratory

Aa-+

The Nursing Research Laboratory is directed by Dr. Sylvie Cossette, Full Professor in the Faculty of Nursing at Université de Montréal. Her research at the MHI aims to evaluate new nursing practices for different clienteles to improve the management of patient health problems.

For example, the Transit-UC study showed that targeted and personalized nursing intervention that involves preparation at discharge and follow-up after discharge from the coronary unit almost doubles the number of patients with acute coronary syndrome who come to the ÉPIC Centre to take the secondary prevention program. Other studies by Dr. Cossette focus on smoking cessation.

Graduate students carry out research on improved recovery in heart failure patients (ADAPT-IC study), patients newly implanted with an ICD (PRO-CARE study), or patients who have experienced delirium or who are undergoing preventive therapy by adopting a healthy lifestyle. These clinical nursing research projects are carried out in collaboration with the medical team and focus on improving the quality of client care through a solid foundation of knowledge that helps transfer results to practice.
