Research

Research projects carried out at the CLRC to improve the Centre's client services


Bookmark and Share

Priority research themes

In line with the CLRC’s mission, the focus of research at the Centre is on improving our clients’ quality of life. The CLRC’s primary objective is to optimize clients’ abilities so they can enjoy greater autonomy and participate as much as possible in the life of their communities. Priority is given to applied research and projects that relate directly to clients’ needs.

To promote continuous improvement of the quality of services, the needs, concerns and interests of the CLRC’s professionals and managers are taken into account at all stages of research. In fact, their involvement and ongoing collaboration in research projects is strongly encouraged, to help ensure these projects are as relevant as possible. The CLRC strongly encourages projects that are interdisciplinary in nature.

The objectives of research projects carried out at the CLRC are diverse and are aimed at:

The CLRC is a founding member of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Rehabilitation of Greater Montreal (CRIR). The CRIR's mission is to contribute to the autonomy and social integration of persons with physical disabilities through basic research, clinical epidemiological and evaluative and applied research in both the biomedical and psychosocial domains.

Collaboration with universities and other rehabilitation establishments is actively encouraged, and researchers from outside the Centre are invited to propose and develop projects at the CLRC.

CRIR-CLRC researchers

The role of the clinician–therapist members

A clinician–therapist is any health or social services professional who works in an establishment that is a member or partner of the CRIR who demonstrates an interest in research, and who is associated with a full researcher to develop or carry out a project and contributes actively to achieving the CRIR’s objectives.

To maintain their association with the CRIR, clinician–therapists must be active in research and contribute to the CRIR’s mission. While clinician–therapists do not necessarily have to hold research grants in their own name, they should aim at obtaining research grants or as co-applicants for such grants. Like full researchers, they should promote rehabilitation research. Their roles are to:

Chronic Pain laboratories

The Pain, Mind and Movement Research Laboratory

Research conducted in this laboratory focuses on understanding the factors that influence pain, mood and movement in individuals with a variety of pain and movement disorders, including osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, low back pain, and different types of cancer.

Studies are aimed at revealing the factors that influence and strengthen the links between best research, education and clinical prctices.

The Pain, Participation and Social Integration Research Laboratory

The research taking place in this laboratory examines the emotions and behaviours associated with chronic pain and the impact of these on the disability of the person.

Psychology, social factors and perceptions all play an important role in shaping reactions to pain and its physical manifectation. The correlation between these factors and their contribution to the experience of pain will be studied and examined.

Furthermore, the research looks at the effect of current clinical practices for treating chronic pain and how these impact a client's prognosis. The results will hopefully shed light on how better outcomes can be achieved.

Clients diagnosed with chronic pain, osteoarthritis, whiplash injuries and those suffering from pain and depression are included in the research studies.

Conducting a research project at the CLRC

The CLRC has a team in place for facilitating the development of research projects, regardless if they are initiated by a researcher or therapist. The team supports various research activities during the stage of project development right up to knowledge transfer and application. 

Researchers and therapists who wish to involve the CLRC in a research project should contact the Clinical Research Coordinator to discuss the objectives and ensure that the criteria and project goals are in accordance with the CLRC's clientele, resources and priorities. 

All CLRC research projects must obtain an ethics approval certificate from the CRIR. Please contact Anik Nolet, Research Ethics Coordinator for CRIR member establishments.

Guests enjoyed a menu of hors d’oeuvres based on local products and wine from Domaine Les Brome, while listening to a jazz trio that gave the event a festive air. Guided tours of the Constance-Lethbridge Rehabilitation Centre were offered, where guests learned first-hand from the Centre’s staff of its programs, services and equipment. The event also included a visit of the newly renovated therapeutic garden, which includes adapted gardening areas and zones for practising adapted sports.
