Cirris student wins FRQS Jacques-Genest Emerging Star Award

Congratulations to Rose Gagnon, a PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Kadija Perreault, for her award-winning paper published in Academic Emergency Medicine.

The Relève étoile competition showcases the excellence of advanced research.

The subject of his article (Direct-access physiotherapy to help manage patients with musculoskeletal disorders in an emergency department: Results of a randomized controlled trial) evokes the presence of physiotherapists in the emergency room in some countries. Rose Gagnon’s study aimed to verify the effects of such care on emergency room congestion but also on the well-being of patients. The results of this project have been positive: they have helped to provide the best possible care for a musculoskeletal disorder by speeding up management, reducing emergency room congestion and the number of patient visits.
