Created in 2014, following work undertaken by three nurses and the manager of the Ministerial Initiative on Alzheimer’s disease and other major neurocognitive disorders of the RUISSS McGill, this community has rapidly become an inter-regional and inter-RUISSS community, covering the catchment areas of the RUISSS McGill and the RUISSS of the Université de Montréal.

The community operates via a team of six volunteer nurses, who make up the Organizing Committee, and who benefit from organizational support and clinical supervision from the two project managers. In the transition between phases 1 and 2 of the Ministerial Initiative, this community of practice has grown from around 50 members to over 200.
