"Il y a maintenant une année que nous nous sommes regroupés pour former le chapitre de Québec de la SCIIGTA. Puisqu’il n’y avait aucune formation offerte pour les infirmières en gastroentérologie à Québec, nous avons jugé plus que pertinent de faire avancer nos connaissances et celles de nos collègues en participant activement à la mise sur pied de ce volet francophone. Nous sommes fiers de participer et d’offrir de notre temps pour le développement de notre profession et de faire partie de cette belle organisation canadienne."
