The four research centres of the CIUSSS de la Capitale Nationale will conduct a major study on the psychological and social impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in the population.

The researchers will be supported by the clinical divisions of the CIUSSS Capitale-Nationale and in collaboration with Université Laval.

The “My Life and the Pandemic in Quebec” (Ma vie et la pandémie au Québec – MAVIPAN) study was announced Thursday. The unprecedented nature of the last few weeks has prompted specialists to gather important information, particularly for the future.

The research project aims to give a voice to the different communities in the region by documenting their experiences and the impacts of the pandemic on their lives and health.

The results will aim to support the health and social services network in the deployment and organization of services in times of crisis. It will also enable the health system to respond to possible crises of an equivalent nature.
