Congratulations to Canadian MSK Rehab Research Network Co-PI Dr. Jean-Sébastien Roy (Université Laval) and his team for recently being awarded a CIHR Operating Grant for their project, ” Better understanding physical and cognitive impairments and functional limitations in people suffering from long COVID to support the development of adapted interventions”
Team: Dr. Jean-Sébastien Roy, Dr. Jean-Sébastien Paquette, Dr. Kadija Perreault
With: Dr. S. Beaulieu-Bonneau. Dr. K. Best, A. Campeau-Lecours, S. Deslauriers, Dr. F. Desmeules
The project’s objective of documenting persistent physical symptoms of COVID-19 in order to define the medical and rehabilitation interventions needed for this population are strongly linked to the Network priorities. We look forward to supporting this project by sharing its results to our membership and through our knowledge translation channels.
Both Dr. Roy and Dr. Perrault have been past recipients of the MSK Rehab Research Network Pilot Grant program. We look forward to supporting this and their other strong research projects in the future.
