  • Major Influences from 2019
  • Top 10 Local Trends – Local focus and problem areas
  • Current Findings – from the most influential regulatory agencies (November 2019 Global Compliance Report) in the site and sponsor categories
  • Summary takeaways – tips on what to expect or watch for (based on new programs, new regulations, new technologies or initiatives)

The Lunch and Learn Series is a recurring educational series aimed at research coordinators. Each meeting is generally eligible for continuing education credit through SoCRA.

Sex-specific prediction of the likelihood for coronary artery disease

Chest pain and/or shortness of breath with exertion are common presentations facing all practitioners and leading to frequent referrals to cardiologists and internists. Concern about underlying and potentially dangerous coronary artery disease (CAD) is often accompanied by referral for extensive diagnostic testing and imaging. Health care costs related to cardiac imaging have grown alarmingly and have been the subject of much scrutiny. Unfortunately, currently available predictive models to help clinicians determine which patients may benefit from costly imaging are underdeveloped, particularly in women. Development of a new prediction score, which includes sex-specific weighting of various factors and inclusion of factors specific to women (e.g. pregnancy-related factors), is needed. Our overall goal is to develop an algorithm for each sex that more accurately identifies obstructive CAD in both men and women, either by including different variables or by weighting variables appropriately for each sex. By more accurately assessing the pre-test likelihood of obstructive CAD in both sexes, we expect to reduce the inappropriate use of invasive diagnostic procedures, save costs and improve patient care.

Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.

Focusing on Quality of Life in Health Care for Older Adults
Feb 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Older adults who are living with progressive chronic illness benefit from health care that focuses on their quality of life. Dr. Rick Sawatzky’s Canada Research Chair in Person-Centred Outcomes involves developing and using online tools to improve health care by asking people about what matters to them about physical, psychosocial and spiritual aspects of their lives, including their symptoms and health care experiences.

The research shows how these tools can be personalized by focusing on those questions that matter most to each person. During this celebratory event, you will have an interactive opportunity to learn about this innovative research on developing and using a Person-Centred Health Information System that seeks to improve health care by focusing on the assessment of each person’s quality of life.

Rick Sawatzky, PhD, RN

Program Head – Patient-Reported Outcomes, CHÉOS
Canada Research Chair in Person-Centred Outcomes
Professor, Trinity Western School of Nursing

Dr. Sawatzky’s research focuses on methods for person-centred outcome measurement and the use of quality of life assessment tools in healthcare decision-making, with a particular emphasis on people who have chronic illnesses and their family caregivers.
