Dr. Bussieres was nominated by Dr. Allan Gotlib, JCCA Editor, Dr. Frank Mangoni, Chair of the CCA Research Committee and Dr. Jeff Warren, Governor from Alberta.

Dr. Bussieres is well published for a Young Investigator and among his many other publications, in 2008 and 2009 he published two very significant papers in the JCCA entitled:

In addition, he was the principal investigator of three diagnostic imaging practice guidelines for musculoskeletal complaints in adults. These were published in JMPT and recently posted on The National Guideline Clearinghouse[TM].

Dr. Andre Bussieres is a CMCC graduate (1991) and completed a BSc in Nursing in 1987 and an MSc in Kinesiology in 2008.

His supervisor is Dr. Jeremy Grimshaw who is the Director of the Canadian Cochrane Network and Center and also a Canada Research Chair in Knowledge Transfer.

His PhD research thesis focuses on Knowledge Transfer and Exchange (KTE) of clinical practice guidelines and the overall goal of his thesis project is to establish a scientific rationale for interventions to translate research findings into clinical practice.

In addition, he recently won two international prizes, from the European Chiropractic Union (ECU) and the Association of Chiropractic Colleges Educational Conference (ACC-RAC), National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, for his paper entitled: "Diagnostic imaging guidelines implementation study: A randomized trial with postal follow-ups."
