The results of CIHR’s Fall 2018 Project Grant Competition were announced on January 23. CHÉOS Scientists are leading three of the projects funded through this round of the competition and a further seven projects are supported by CHÉOS Scientists as co-investigators.
Drs. Nick Bansback and Eugenia Oviedo-Joekes are leading a network meta-analysis of opioid agonist therapies that aims to make indirect comparisons of effectiveness between different treatments by synthesizing the results of past trials. Co-investigators for the study include Drs. Aslam Anis, Martin Schechter, and Wei Zhang.
Dr. Zhang is also leading a study about developing more effective measurements of work productivity loss, supported by Dr. Mieke Koehoorn as a co-investigator. Dr. John Staples is leading a study that will look at the different driving restrictions on people with cardiac defibrillator implants and how these restrictions could impact the motor vehicle accidents.
