Once your access request to resume research activities in Phase 3 has been approved by the UNF or by the DEUR of CCSMTL, members of your team must make an appointment with Émilie Dessureault at following the email support.unf@criugm.qc.ca for the formation désinfection COVID-19 and the formation sur le port et retrait des Équipements de protection individuels (ÉPI). These training sessions are face-to-face, in a meeting of approximately 45 minutes.

Research teams must obligatory assist in the disinfection procedure of the areas and equipment used. After each participant, the UNF reserves a period of 30 minutes for disinfection, this time is not paid by the research team.

Assessment session

You can view the reservation calendar as before to view availability, but you cannot make reservations before your assessment session.

Online screening form

The MRI screening questionnaire is now done online. When your MRI reservation is submitted, the link for the screening form will be available within your reservation. The screening form must be completed no later than 24 hours before your reservation. Remember to make sure your participant is MRI compatible when recruiting. You must present the consent form, signed, at the time of your reservation so that the IRM operator can take a picture of it and attach it to the participant’s file. All electronic documents and signatures are saved on UNF servers at CRIUGM.
