Research Projects

  1. Paediatric acute lymphadenitis: Emergency department management and clinical course


    The vast majority of children with acute lymphadenitis were managed with outpatient oral antibiotics and did not require return emergency department visits or surgical drainage.

  2. A nurse-initiated jaundice management protocol improves quality of care in the paediatric emergency department


    Implementation of a PED neonatal jaundice management protocol was associated with improved timeliness and standardization of care for this common and important condition.

  3. Novel WDR45 Mutation and Pathognomonic BPAN Imaging in a Young Female With Mild Cognitive Delay


    Pregnancy and birth history were unremarkable. Gross and fine motor developmental milestones were achieved at appropriate times during childhood; however, her mother reported a long-standing history of expressive and receptive language difficulties requiring speech language therapy until grade 8.
