Research Projects we’re Collaborating on

Over the years, MEMO-Qc has supported and continues to support a number of researchers in their work to improve the lives of people with spinal cord injuries. For example :

  • A research project using 3D mapping software program which has the potential to create a detailed bank of information about adapted housing across Quebec (under the direction of Manon Guay and Hélène Pigot, in collaboration with several other researchers at the Université de Sherbrooke).
  • A Canadian study aimed at gaining a better understanding of peer mentoring programs in Canada (under the direction of Shane Sweet).
  • Research that takes an experiential approach at understanding the heart of peer support (under the direction of Normand Boucher).
  • A research project looking at the needs of users as the central theme, taking into account all environments related to rehabilitation (initiated by the IRGLM).
  • A study to understand the characteristics of some of the services (home help, help with the preparation of meals, etc.) valued by people with physical disabilities and their caregivers (under the direction of Bertrand Achou).
  • A research on barriers and facilitators as perceived by people with disabilities in the labor market (under the direction of Charles Bellemarre).

On occasion, we invite our members to participate in surveys and research studies. The results add to the data on spinal cord injuries and at the same time may help improve the lives of the disabled.
