Quality improvement collaborative highlights a "less is more" method that may prevent antibiotic overprescribing.
The stress experienced by healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on their mental health as well as their personal and professional environment. The problem requires utmost attention, but what can actually be done to improve things? In a new study, a team of researchers from the McGill University Health Center (RI-MUHC) and McGill University’s Research Institute have found a way to help health professionals, researchers, managers and decision makers better understand the dynamics of the factors by examining links between events.
As Mental Health Week comes to a close, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is keeping the conversation going and inspiring support all month long through the second annual Sunrise Challenge. The event invites Canadians to rally and rise together in support of life-saving research, care and education initiatives.
It's not often that a failed clinical trial leads to a scientific breakthrough. When patients in the UK started showing adverse side effects during a cancer immunotherapy trial, researchers went back through the data and worked with patient samples to see what went wrong. Their findings, published recently in Nature, provide critical clues to why many immunotherapies trigger dangerous side effects.
Is there hype for artificial intelligence (AI)? As it turns out, yes, there is. Nevertheless, leading clinical laboratory companies are taking real steps with the technology that showcase AI developments in digital pathology and patient care.
The new technology could make at-home diagnosis of diseases faster and available at lower cost.
The COVID-19 messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines use lipid nanoparticles (tiny fat droplets) to deliver mRNA to the body's cells. A similar method for mRNA delivery was used in the current study. However, instead of aiming for an immune response, the researchers' ultimate goal is to instruct the heart's cells to repair themselves after a heart attack.
An international team of researchers has created a different series of growth charts for the brain and have produced the first comprehensive growth charts for brain development.
Test uses 'nanobubbles' to deliver results as accurate as PCR within 30 minutes.
