Patricia Pelufo Silveira
As we pass the two-year anniversary of the COVID-19 emergency declaration and lock down in Quebec, it is time to take a breath and take stock of all the research on the pandemic that is being conducted at the Douglas. Researchers from the Mental Health and Society Division, and from the Early Life Adversity Theme-Based Group will present brief overviews of the studies in which they are involved.
Alain Brunet will present his study aimed at understanding if the emotional responses to the pandemic qualify more as “trauma” or as “stress”.
Marie-Josée Fleury will describe her studies on COVID-19 related to changes in Quebec mental health service use, to patients with substance-related disorders, high emergency department users, and homelessness.
Suzanne King will discuss her involvement in four studies for which she developed scales to assess people’s objective hardship due to COVID and their subjective distress from the pandemic. These include 3 studies of pregnant women and one for a cohort of elderly people.
Xiangfei Meng will present two studies. The first is a published umbrella review of loneliness and isolation among the elderly, and the second is a study of psychosocial issues among residents of long-term care facilities.
Patricia Silveira will describe her study of polygenic risk scores and the prediction of severe COVID-19 disease.
