The five research themes in social gerontology
Scientific research is conducted at the Centre for Research and Expertise in Social Gerontology (CREGÉS) under the direction of seventeen researchers who are members of CREGÉS.
These university professors or researchers based in health and social services institutions - including three from CSSS Cavendish - are affiliated with Université du Québec à Montréal, Université de Montréal, McGill University, Université Laval, Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue and the Institut de gériatrie de Montréal.
The team also consists of 25 practitioner-researchers and a dozen students pursuing a master’s degree, doctoral degree or post-doctoral studies.
Together they initiate and lead approximately 60 research projects that are grouped into five research streams:
Theme 1: Multiple forms of aging and their representations
Theme 2: Social environments and living situations of older persons
Theme 3: Intervention with and for seniors and their relatives and friends
Theme 4: Public policies on aging and citizen action
Theme 5: Aging, social exclusion and solidarity
