Improving interpretation of patient-reported outcomes in health care
CHÉOS Scientist Dr. Rick Sawatzky and colleagues recently received an Operating Grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to develop and implement methods that will enhance accurate measurement of patient-reported outcomes in health care. They will use existing registry data on patients who have had elective surgery for knee or hip replacements to test for inconsistencies in patient-reported outcomes. This three-year grant enables Principal Investigators Dr. Sawatzky and Dr. Tolulope Sajobi (University of Calgary) to collaborate with investigators and knowledge users across Canada.

Another project by Rick Sawatzky on palliative care was recently featured on the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research website.
Trainees receive travel awards
CHÉOS trainees Stephen Pan, Adam Raymakers, Logan Trenaman, and Nicole Tsao have received Travel Awards from the CIHR Institute Community Support Program. These awards allow recipients to present their research at national and international meetings and conferences. Congratulations to all!
