Children with rare, unexplained medical conditions may be able to obtain a diagnosis through the new ‘CAUSES’ research clinic at BC Children’s Hospital. The clinic saw its first patient on June 4, 2015.
CFRI extends our best wishes to our colleague Knut Nordlie, who is retiring from his position as BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Vice President and Chief Operating Officer on July 1, 2015.
Knut has been a wonderful source of support to CFRI during his 20 years of service to the Foundation. Over the course of Knut’s career, his direction has led the Foundation through a period of exceptional growth, enabling a $12.3-million commitment to children’s health research in 2015-16. Knut’s dedication and excellent financial management have allowed CFRI to succeed as an institution and generate innovative research that improves the lives of children and families in BC and beyond.
Knut’s achievements over the last two decades are far too many to list, but to name just a few:
- Capital campaigns which led to the construction of the Ambulatory Care Building, Mental Health Building, Djavad Mowafaghian Child Care Centre, Teck Acute Care Centre and Translational Research Building – as well as establishing significant endowments and creating Child Health BC
- The Children’s Hospital Lotteries which, since their inception 13 years ago, have generated nearly $50-million in net revenue for child health research, giving families hope for prevention, treatment and cure
- The Foundation’s investment portfolio, which has grown exponentially through the skilled stewardship of Knut and the Finance & Investment Committee of the Board
- The overall growth and scope of the Foundation for which Knut has played a key role
During his time at the Foundation, Knut has made a difference in the lives of millions of children. He is also a wonderful colleague and friend. On behalf of everyone at CFRI, we thank Knut for his friendship and service and wish him the best of luck as he embarks on this new chapter.
BC Children’s Hospital Foundation has appointed Hitesh Kothary to the position of Vice President & Chief Financial Officer effective Monday, June 22, 2015. Hitesh takes over from Knut Nordlie who is retiring after 20 years of service with the Foundation.
Hitesh has over 27 years of senior leadership experience including strategic planning and direction, management of operations, business transformation, risk management, mergers and acquisitions and career development of finance and accounting personnel.
Prior to joining the Foundation, Hitesh held senior financial positions at various organizations including Rides.ca; Pacific Newspaper Group, publisher of The Vancouver Sun and The Province; Amica Mature Lifestyles; and Revy Home Centres. He has also served on various boards in the not-for-profit sector including United Way of the Lower Mainland and the B.C. and Yukon Division of the Canadian Diabetes Association.
Hitesh holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of British Columbia and obtained his Chartered Accountant (CA) designation in 1988 while articling with PriceWaterhouseCoopers.
Join us for the last session in the electronic Health Records in Research (eHRR) seminar series until September: “Approaches to Incentivize Linking Electronic Health Records to Registries: Lessons from US Clinical Registries”
Thursday, June 25 | 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. | Cullen Family New Lecture Theater, St. Paul’s Hospital,
The eHRR seminar series is organized by research leaders at Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, Providence Health Care Research Institute and CFRI.
This session will be presented by Dr. Nick Bansback, Assistant Professor at the School of Population and Public
Health at UBC and Scientist at the Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences.
Individuals interested in developing and participating in EHR based registries for quality improvement and research purposes.
Registries in the US that link eHRs such as the PINNACLE registry, organized by the American College of Cardiology, are growing fast and enabling quality improvement efforts along with research. This talk will describe some of the incentive strategies that are driving the creation of these registries, and recruiting physicians and hospitals to participate. The lessons will help understand strategies that can be employed in Vancouver and beyond.
The increased use of electronic Health Records (eHR) in clinical settings is enabling the development of new methodologies in health research. In many institutions across the world, rich clinical data is now extracted from eHRs, anonymized, and made available to the research community for epidemiologic, quality improvement, surveillance, or other studies. In the current context leading to eHR implementation across Vancouver lower mainland, we believe it is important for researchers and administrators to understand the opportunities and challenges in using eHRs for research. This monthly seminar series will showcase real examples from leaders in the field, focusing both on the methodology and the vision forward. It will alternate location between the Child and Family Research Institute, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, and Providence Health Care Research Institute.

Congratulations to Takuro (Tak) Ishikawa, a UBC doctoral student supervised by Dr. Mariana Brussoni, who won first place in the student researcher poster competition at the AUTO21 Conference! The research showcased on the poster was supported by an AUTO21 grant to Dr. Ian Pike and supervised by Dr. Pike.
Tak won for his poster “AUTO21 Research on Booster Seat Use: Past, Present and Future,” which showcases his research on the reasons people underestimate the safety value of child booster seats. Tak proposes that many people believe that booster are primarily designed to prevent children from being ejected from the vehicle in a crash. Consequently, they assume booster seats aren’t necessary because seatbelts provide similar protection. In fact, booster seats also help prevent abdominal and spinal injuries caused by seatbelts.
More information about the conference and the competition can be found on the AUTO21 website.
We are pleased to feature new publications from CFRI’s investigators, staff and trainees. If you have a publication you would like us to include in the next issue, please email email@example.com.
