Chair's Mission

The Research Chair in Innovative Nursing Practices is a philanthropic chair of the Université de Montréal Faculty of Nursing. Its goal is to develop, evaluate and transfer tailored virtual eHealth interventions as self-care support tools for people living with a chronic health condition. 

Chronic health problems

The rise of chronic health problems and the emergence of new needs among the population pose significant challenges for nursing research. New solutions can be envisaged and the evaluation of innovative interventions paves the way to changing the traditional way of offering and delivering care.

TAVIE concept

Research carried out over the past decade helped develop a virtual nurse concept called TAVIE, the French acronym for Traitement Assistance Virtuelle Infirmière et Enseignement (Treatment Virtual Nurse Assistance and Teaching).
