Inter-RUISSS coordination for Montreal and adjacent regions


The Centre of Excellence on Longevity and the Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal (IUGM) have joined their expertise to coordinate triennial action plans for the 5 CIUSSSs which make up the territory of Montreal and the 4 CISSSs which make up the adjacent regions. The proximity of these territories and healthcare-related popular behaviours highlight a real need to standardize and coordinate the activities of these CISSSs and CIUSSSs. This step is complementary to the specific measures undertaken by each territory and required to allow a better continuum of patient care.


  • To ensure the synergy, transferability and accessibility of patient care in each CIUSSS
  • To develop inter-CIUSSS collaboration, so as to better harmonize patient care and care continuum all over the city of Montreal and in its adjacent regions
