Research Interests

Development and evaluation of innovative nursing practices (e-health) targeting patients with chronic health problems, whose needs are complex (e.g., HIV-Aids, cancer, serious heart or kidney malfunctions, diabetes) and who require continuous and personalized follow-up care. 

Virtual nursing intervention concept and innovative platform called TAVIE™ for Traitement Assistance Virtuelle Infirmière et Enseignement (French acronym for Treatment Virtual Nurse Assistance and Teaching). The TAVIE™ interventions are based on the theories of behaviour change. They aim at providing individuals with tailored real-time support in the management of the challenges inherent to their health conditions. These interventions are driven by a decision tree, which differentiate then markedly from typical static information websites. The web applications also offer access to personalized education and reliable and quality information at all times. 

Development of new web-based research strategies. All the steps of a traditional randomized control trial have been transposed to an online research strategy (recruitment, selection, randomization, measurement, and participant follow-up), which opens up new and highly promising research avenues. 

Studies having a direct impact on care and follow-up care. Our privileged relationships with clinical and community organizations have allowed us to anchor our research in the concerns and priority clinical problems of the patients.
