Martha Mackay receives Salary Award
Congratulations to CHÉOS Scientist Dr. Martha Mackay, who has received an Embedded Clinician Researcher Salary Award from CIHR. Through the four-year award, Dr. Mackay will pursue her research project, “Transitions in care: improving outcomes for cardiac patients.”
How can we better describe uncertainty?
Research suggests clinicians, patients, and the public often struggle to understand uncertain information, and use it appropriately in decision making. The Society for Medical Decision Making (SMDM) is having a panel session on October 25 as part of their annual conference. Three international experts in uncertainty communication will discuss novel ways that scientific uncertainty can be conveyed in ways that best activate good decisions.
SMDM conference organizers are looking for examples for the panelists; specifically, challenges people are having in how to best convey uncertainty. For example, “How do we best describe very small risks?”, or “How do we portray information where evidence is conflicting?”
Congratulations to Ms. Rana Young, whohas transitioned into a new role as Program and Human Resources Coordinator at CHÉOS/CTN.
Under the supervision of Dr. Arminee Kazanjian and CHÉOS Scientist Dr. Hubert Wong, Mr. Joseph Puyat successfully defended his thesis, “Assessing Gaps and Variations in Depression Care and the Impact of Physician Incentives,” in July. He has completed all the requirements towards his PhD at UBC’s School of Population and Public Health, which will be formally conferred upon him this September. Well done, Joseph!
