Submitted in 2006.
Département de sociologie, Université de Montréal.
Supervised by Johanne Collin, Co-supervised by Andrée Demers.
FQRSC 2-year Grant
Project description: Based upon ethnomethodological epistemology and the conversation analysis movement, this thesis develops the new notion of “conversational initiative,” used here to account for the tacit negotiations that occur continuously and that dynamically structure conversations between physicians and patients. The analysis which follows lays out the co‑production of recurring, asymmetrical situations in physician-patient interactions and points out some conceptual and methodological traps frequently encountered in recent studies, particularly in those that claim to be part of the “patient-centred medicine” movement.

Project ORANGE: The origins and reasons for the absence of generalized notification of adverse drug reactions: A qualitative study in a tertiary-care mother and child university health centre.
Submitted in 2007.
Professional Master’s (M.Sc. Pharmaceutical Practice in Health Care Institutions), Faculté de pharmacie, Université de Montréal.
Supervised by Johanne Collin, Ph.D (Directrice facultaire) and Denis Lebel, B.Pharm, M.Sc., FCSHP, Jean-François Bussières B.Pharm, M.Sc., MBA, FCSHP and Benoît Bailey M.D., M.Sc (clinical supervisors)
Financed by the U.R.P.P. (Pharmaceutical Practice Research Unit) of the CHU Sainte-Justine’s department of Pharmacy.
Project description: A qualitative study aimed at determining which factors influence the propensity to declare adverse drug reactions encountered by health professionals in a mother and child university health centre, in order to identify possible solutions to the prevailing problem of under-notification. Semi-directed interviews with physicians and discussion groups involving pharmacists from various clinical sectors have uncovered four major paradoxes that underpin the problem, herein presented in an Ishikawa diagram. Finally, recommendations for improving the Canadian pharmacovigilance system are formulated.

Professional Master’s in Pharmaceutical Practice, Faculté de pharmacie, Université de Montréal.

Submitted in 2006
Project description: Several guidelines are issued to health professionals in order to optimize the treatments they prescribe. But, there are several influencing factors that can lead to divergent practices. The intent of this study is to determine the rate of compliance with guidelines on the treatment of acute community-acquired pneumonia by the prescribing physicians at the CHU Sainte-Justine assigned to the Emergency room and the Pediatric units, and to further the understanding of the medical culture of a French-language mother and child tertiary-care hospital in order to identify the determining factors of guideline compliance.

The will to be oneself: living and surviving with antidepressants.
Submitted in 2007.
Département de sociologie, Université du Québec à Montréal.
Supervised by Marcelo Otero.
Project description: This thesis studies the development of the phenomenon of depression and the widespread use of antidepressants as the treatment of choice in the western world. The following paradox, at the center of contemporary individuality, is our starting point: the growing social pressure to be the focus of one’s own life creates dependency. How does the psychic and social vulnerability that typifies a depressive episode transform into a chronic and beneficial dependence on antidepressants? Through the analysis of the experiences of six women who have taken antidepressants to overcome an episode of depression, we managed to identify some answers to this question.

In Guatemala, just such a scenario is feared following the 2005 ratification of the Dominican Republic–Central American Free Trade Agreement (DR–CAFTA). This qualitative, exploratory study aims at identifying the repercussions of the DR–CAFTA on access to medications and population health, as perceived by key stakeholders, and their recommendations.
