UMCE, UQAT team up for respiratory course

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick and ROUYN-NORANDA, Quebec — The Université de Moncton, Edmundston Campus (UMCE) and the Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT), have joined forces in the production of a course certificate in respiratory therapy with Anesthesia and Critical Care/UQAT (SCL3102 – Advanced Technologies in Mechanical Ventilation I).

This course will be given by Professor Paul Ouellet (PhD, RRT, FCCM), who will use the local UMCE as the course is in Edmundston. Students from both universities will have the chance to follow the same course in person and later through distance education offered by UQAT.

“This course is the first in a series of two offered by UQAT and discusses key physiology concepts to the context of advanced mechanical ventilation in critical care,” said Ouellet.

Stéphane Delisle (PhD, FCSRT, FCCM, associate researcher at the CHUM Research Center) will also be present to discuss the so-called hybrid ventilation modes and controlled ventilation.

The technological facilities available at UMCE well as the expertise of its team of technology services, along with UQAT’s team, will produce a course of great quality.

“This partnership is the result of a great collaboration between the two institutions. This project could lead to other avenues between the two universities, who knows?” said Jocelyn Nadeau, director of continuing education and technology services at UMCE.
