CAHO hosted its second Health Research showcase at Queen’s Park and Hamilton Health Sciences was there. The event is designed to demonstrate for MPPs and government stakeholders the breadth, depth and impact of hospital-based research in Ontario, and the value it has in making Ontario healthier, wealthier and smarter. Hamilton Health Sciences featured the Sepsis Simulation Education Project developed by Dr. Alison Fox-Robichaud. Dr. Fox-Robichaud and Michelle Kwong, Sepsis module project manager, demonstrated a high fidelity mannequin that mimics real-life symptoms of early sepsis. The life-size interactive display generated much interest and participation. On hand to support the initiative were Rob MacIsaac, President & CEO and Frank Naus, VP Research.
Dr. Alison Fox-Robichaud is the Site Lead for the Cardiac Surgical Intensive Care unit at Hamilton General Hospital, where she is also the Critical Care Medicine Specialist. She is also Associate Professor, Department of Medicine, Division of Critical Care at the Thrombosis and Atherosclerosis Research Institute, McMaster University.
