Research Interest


My research focuses on gastroenterology diseases clinical and population-based research in Québec and across Canada. My research has focused on adherence to guidelines in patient and physician populations, and, more recently, on colonoscopy services quality. My research activities address the utilization of preventive health services for colorectal cancer, the enhancement of methods in colorectal cancer screening research, the evaluation of the safety and quality of screening colonoscopy, and the development of a national strategy for colorectal cancer screening.
