Cognition community of practice


Created in 2014, the community of practice of McGill cognition nurses quickly emerged as the inter-regional and inter-RUIS community to service the territories of the McGill and University of Montreal RUISs. The success achieved by Phase 1 kept true during Phase 2, and this community grew from 50 to over 200 members. At the beginning of 2018, it was decided that this experience-sharing activity would be spread to regional and inter-regional communities.


  • To organize regional meetings between clinicians servicing cognitively disabled patients
  • To propose a new way of organizing, aiming to facilitate experience-sharing between regions
