Unlimited Emergencies, Limited Resources: Applying Science to Solve Health System Problems
Through an example of a real emergency department problem, learn how to define a health services research question, design a study to answer the question, and use your findings to change how the system works to solve the problem and demonstrate the impact of your intervention. Presented by Dr. Quynh Doan, Investigator, Pediatric Emergency Physician & Director, Clinical Research, BC Children's Hospital; Associate Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, UBC.

This week's Research Roundup covers medicinal cannabis and autism, the use of CRISPR to reduce transplant rejection, gender's role in adolescent food choices and the connection between early cytomegalovirus infection and allergies.
This week's Research Roundup covers new targets for treating schizophrenia, improved models of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia, game-changing concussion education for educators and a new way to identify concussions using resting state EEG data.
The Gut4Health team at BC Children's Hospital has put a novel twist on a gold standard nutritional treatment for pediatric inflammatory bowel disease. A prebiotic formulation could lead to longer-term remission and improve outcomes for children with IBD.
We believe there’s nothing we can’t do with your support. It can take years to turn scientific breakthrough into new interventions and treatments. Funding helps speed the pace of change. When given the resources, we can bring transformative therapies – and hope – out of the laboratory and into the clinic to save and improve children’s lives.
