The team receives one of 11 grants across Canada to reduce the administrative burden on family physicians!

Updated: 3 days ago

18.5 million hours are spent by physicians every year on unnecessary administrative tasks, and something needs to be done! 

That’s why we’re thrilled to receive funding of nearly $1 million from the Association Médicale Canadienne, Gestion financière MD and Banque Scotia as part of the Health Care Unburdened Grant program to help alleviate physicians’ administrative burden through " Improving family medicine with patient-reported data ".

This project, and many like it, will lin some of that administrative pressure faced by physicians each day, and allow them to finally focus on what’s most important: caring for patients.

The project will be led by Pre Marie-Eve Poitras (Université de Sherbrooke) and her Chaire de recherche CRMUS sur les pratiques professionnelles optimales en soins primaires team.

Our collaborators include:

Marie-Dominique Poirier, patient partner, Pre Annie Leblanc (Université Laval, Researcher at the Vitam Research Centre), Pre Géraldine Layani (Université de Montréal, Researcher at the Centre de recherche du CHUM), Pre Sabrina Wong (University of British Colombia, Researcher at the Centre for Health Services and Policy Research) and Dr Antoine Groulx (Professor at Université Laval, Scientific Director of Unité de Soutien SSA).
