The Université de Sherbrooke and the Faculté de médecine et des sciences de la santé would like to thank the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and particularly their Institute of Health Services and Policy Research and the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation for their generous financial contribution to the applied research chair.

Obviously, special thanks go to the Centre de santé et de services sociaux de Chicoutimi (CSSSC) whose funding contributed to the creation of this chair and to its research projects over 5 years since February 22 2007. The Chair is also grateful for the infrastructure support provided by the CSSSC’s Direction médicale de la recherche universitaire (DMRU) and support from the Agence de la santé et des services sociaux du Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean.

The Chairholder and collaborators also benefit from supplementary funding from various sources  for projects that are complementary to the Chair.
