Countries worldwide face challenges meeting the growing needs for long-term care services because of high costs. A study led by researchers from McGill University and Université du Québec en Outaouais shows that introducing nurse practitioners can significantly reduce costs and improve patient safety.
As you know, McGill University is committed to helping contain the propagation of COVID-19 and fully supports the Quebec government’s decision to close all schools and universities for the two-week period ending March 29. We all must do our part to “flatten the curve” so that health services are not overwhelmed by the resulting patient load.

According to a 2015 census, there are just over 3,000 homeless people living in Montreal. This number does not account for those who are dealing with hidden homelessness, such as temporarily living with friends or family or other short-term accommodation.
In addition to the many challenges and stresses of homelessness—such as meeting immediate survival needs for food, water, clothing and shelter from the elements—taking care of health needs might seem insurmountable.
The McGill French Language Centre is offering French language courses specifically designed for students registered in professional programs for health and social sciences with the aim of preparing them for professional practice in Quebec.
