PhD student, Pharmacoepidemiology, Laval University
I have been a registered nurse since 2011 with a master’s degree in nursing sciences from the University of Quebec at Rimouski. I am currently a doctoral student in pharmacoepidemiology at the Faculty of Pharmacy at Laval University. I have been immersed in research on the themes of aging and chronic diseases since the start of my master’s degree in 2015. My doctoral project consists in developing polypharmacy indicators from medico-administrative data and in evaluating their causal effect on hospitalizations due to falls among the elderly in the province of Quebec for surveillance purposes.
