Patrick Archambault obtained his medical degree from Université Laval in 2000 and completed his post-graduate training to become a member of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada as an emergency medicine specialist at Université Laval in 2005. He was awarded the McLaughlin Fellowship bursary by the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Université Laval and, in 2007, completed a Royal College subspecialization in critical care medicine in Ottawa. Dr. Archambault graduated with honours from the Master’s program in clinical research at Université Laval in 2007 and the Royal College awarded him a Certificate of Completion in the clinician investigator program. During his Master's studies, Dr. Archambault studied the negative impact of etomidate on the production of cortisol in traumatic brain injuries. Since January 2008, he has worked in the Emergency Department and the Intensive Care Unit of the Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis.
In October 2008, Dr. Archambault was awarded a Canadian Health Services Research Foundation (CHSRF) CADRE postdoctoral fellowship scholarship within André Lavoie’s REISS program, "Performance of a Continuum of Services in Trauma." His training was directed by France Légaré, André Lavoie and Jean Lapointe. Dr. Archambault's project studied the implementation of a community of practice to help physicians caring for critically ill trauma patients to share evidence-based therapeutic protocols.
Current research project
- The study of health care professionals' intentions to use wiki-based reminders to promote best practices in trauma care
- Study of the implementation of a community of practice to promote the sharing and creation of evidence-based protocols in the care of critically ill trauma patients
