Geneviève Roch is a nurse and associate professor at the Laval University Nursing School. In addition to being a regular researcher in the area of population health and optimal health practices at the CHU de Québec–Laval University, she is attached to the Centre de recherche sur les soins et les services de première ligne de l’Université Laval (CERSSPL-UL) and to the research centre of the CISSS Chaudière-Appalaches. She is co-leader of the Quebec Network on Nursing Intervention Research (RRISIQ) platform. Her work focuses on the optimization of health practices and services, through integrated mobilization and knowledge translation strategies in order to support the best clinical and administrative decisions. She uses mixed methods in most of her research projects. Her expertise is on the intersection of health services organization and knowledge translation, mainly in the areas of perinatality and the service continuum between health establishments and service network partners. The quality and relevance of her work were recently recognized with the award of “Tribute to Social Innovation” prize (2015) and the 2014-2016 Award for Excellence in Research from the Laval University Nursing School. 

Online and group perinatal education: Towards the optimization of services

Research program on the organization and impact of online prenatal education with users and healthcare professionals. She is currently conducting a project funded by the CIHR (2016) under the Partnerships for Health System Improvement (PHSI) program to evaluate the impacts of online and group prenatal education on health determinants and users’ health status, as well as on networks of perinatal educational services with community-based partners.

Relevailles: a social innovation at the core of research projects and knowledge translation

Geneviève Roch was in charge of the development and implementation of a research program on perinatal services that encompasses two collaborative research projects with knowledge translation strategies and one knowledge utilization/diffusion project. The first study, carried out with a network of perinatal resource centres, focused on perinatal vulnerability and evaluation of a postnatal home support service called “Relevailles”. The second study, which was conducted in partnership with several policy and decision makers, ranked 1st in the CIHR competition on interventional research. Its aim was to evaluate the Relevailles services offered by family community organizations and to examine the nature of their collaborations with healthcare facilities. A third project, funded by the Ministry of Education, supported the dissemination of results to consolidate the expertise gained through different knowledge translation strategies, including a website intended for the public. The findings so far have informed various guidelines on intersectoral collaborations and perinatal services.
