Research Projects

  1. Nonauscultatory clinical criteria are sensitive for cardiac pathology in low-risk paediatric heart murmurs


    Basic clinical criteria that do not require auscultation are highly sensitive for ruling out significant cardiac pathology in children over 12 months of age.

  2. Tuberculosis among First Nations, Inuit and Métis children and youth in Canada: Beyond medical management


    Historical TB control practices in Canada have contributed to stigma and discrimination toward those with the disease, as well as fear and mistrust of the health system.

  3. The Impact of Implementing a Preprinted Order Form for Inpatient Management of Otherwise Healthy Children Admitted to a Tertiary Care Centre With a Diagnosis of Bronchiolitis


    A retrospective chart review was performed of children admitted to the inpatient units at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) with a discharge diagnosis of bronchiolitis.
