Training and Research

In 2013, Vitalité Health Network adopted a strategic research plan that is the cornerstone for the development of the research sector.


Research optimizes health care services and the health of the population by capitalizing on:

  • Scientific and technological innovation;
  • Educational programs;
  • The expertise of health professionals.

To fulfill this mission, the Research Support Office is tasked with providing support services at the various stages in research by facilitating the following:

  • Search for funding;
  • Development of research projects;
  • Communication with the Regional Ethics Office and Research Ethics Board;
  • Research completion (by facilitating access to the Network’s patients, clinical staff, and technological resources);
  • Data analysis and interpretation;
  • Writing and publication.

You are invited to share your ideas and challenges with us; these are valuable because they have the potential to enhance innovation, efficiency, and effectiveness within our Network.
