Quebec-Maritimes Node Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board is a virtual roster of experts and knowledge users providing advice and guidance to the Steering Committee and giving them access to a versatile group from which to pull expertise based on specific needs. The community advisory board meetings are ad hoc, planned yearly based upon the priorities identified, or scheduled on the heels of substance misuse-related conferences.

Quebec-Maritimes Node Knowledge Transfer Committee

The Knowledge Transfer committee has the mandate of facilitating the communication and translation of research results by leading consultation and dissemination activities within and outside the Node. This committee enhances the Node’s capacity to have a positive and sustainable impact on service provision, clinical practices, and health outcomes for people living with substance misuse.

QMN Members and collaborators

The CRISM Québec-Maritimes Node (QMN)  counts over 75 active members, including clinician scientists and researchers interested in discovering more effective preventive and therapeutic approaches to counter substance misuse. In addition, the QMN comprises community organizations helping persons living with substance misuse (Meta D’Âme, Direction 180, and Cran), social and paramedical workers, and doctors specializing on substance abuse and psychosocial approaches.
