État des connaissances. Qualité du milieu de vie en centre d’hébergement et de soins de longue durée pour les personnes âgées en perte d’autonomie
(October 2018)

This document published by the Institut national d’excellence en santé et en services sociaux (INESSS) describes, based on the evidence, what is a quality living environment in a CHSLD (or its equivalent).

This publication follows a request from the MSSS as part of a review of the quality of life assessment visits to CHSLDs.

Three questions are addressed: 1) What are the characteristics of a quality living environment in a CHSLD? 2) What are the impacts of a quality living environment on residents, their families, staff and the institution? 3) What are the evaluation methods for a quality living environment?


Portrait de la situation. L’accessibilité aux services de santé et aux services sociaux au Québec (septembre 2018)

In this "Atlas of Accessibility" prepared by researchers from the École de la santé publique (ESPUM) and the Institut de recherche en santé publique (IRSPUM) (IRSPUM) of the Université de Montréal, we detail the accessibility of different services provided by the 22 CISSS-CIUSSS of Quebec.

This study aimed to verify whether the creation of CISSS-CIUSSS as part of the recent reform had made it possible to improve accessibility to health and social services. The authors note that over the past three years, for some categories of care, particularly for mental health care and services to disadvantaged populations, access is still problematic.
