Training for caregivers (Université de Montréal)

This pilot project focuses on the development of training aimed at consolidating the skills that informal caregivers use in acute, long-term and home care settings, in particular with a population losing their autonomy.

It is a skills-based training program co-developed and co-taught by caregivers and professionals, subject to a certificate of participation from the Continuing Professional Development of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Montreal. Lasting approximately 15 hours, this training is offered online and also includes a practical workshop.

The training was developed from the concrete needs highlighted in interviews, focus groups and consultations. The pilot project for this training took place at the CHUM in the geriatrics, pneumology and transplantation units, with the ultimate goal of being rolled out and accessible at the provincial level.


1. Offer a first level of training to experienced caregivers in support of a patient with transient or permanent loss of autonomy to perform a set of tasks safely in acute, long-term and home care settings.

2. Facilitate collaboration and linkage between the caregiver and the patient’s care team.
