Steven Ouellet

Position: Patient Partner

After completing two bachelor’s degrees (in philosophy and industrial relations), Steven pursued graduate studies at Université Laval and completed a PhD in 2016. As part of his thesis, which was based on a longitudinal study, he studied the evolution of nurses’ working and employment conditions (their well-being at work) in critical care units. Having been diagnosed with cancer in 2019,  he experiences the burden of dealing with many appointments and administrative tasks. Interested in the impact of digital technologies, he is wondering if the use of digital portals could potentially enhance the cancer patients’ quality of life and health outcomes.
