Three assistant directors of CIUSSS West-Central Montreal have received scholarships from the EXTRA FORCES Program of the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement.
During the 14-month program, the team must create a long-term healthcare improvement project, with a focus on better practices in an organization that performs well. Throughout the program, the scholarship recipients are followed by world-class faculty members, as well as a dedicated team coach, Marcel Villeneuve, a renowned healthcare administrator.
With backgrounds in three fields (Nursing Administration, Autonomy of Seniors, and Front-Line Services), Marie-Hélène Carbonneau, Christine Touchette and Sébastien Blin have joined forces to develop an innovative and inclusive project: patient partnership at the heart of the evaluation, and the use of clinical technologies in health care.
The success of this project also depends on the involvement and expertise of several partners within the organization. In the coming months, 360 will follow the evolution of the various elements of this project.
