Who are we ?
The Methodological Development component of the Quebec SPOR SUPPORT Unit aims to meet the needs of researchers with respect to methodological approaches and methodologies for planning, conducting, and evaluating patient-oriented research (POR). It is located in the Department of Family Medicine at McGill University under the direction of Drs. Pierre Pluye and Tibor Schuster (family medicine) and the associate direction of Dr. Elham Rahme (medicine).
Our methodological developments include initiatives on :

The Methodological Developments component mobilizes and collaborates with methodological experts from the Quebec, Canadian and international scientific community.
Research literacy aims to help people understand basic research concepts. It helps establish a common language among patients, managers, clinicians and researchers who are called upon to collaborate on a research project.
