McMaster's medical school focus of international documentary
The Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University is the site for an international documentary about the best training of medical doctors.
Eos Films, a television production company from the U.K., has been on campus and in area hospitals to film all aspects of the program which pioneered small group, problem-based education for physicians and a candidate selection program that selects for communications, teamwork, problem-solving and ethical skills.
Q&A with Dr. Mark Loeb
Reported cases of West Nile virus in parts of Southern Ontario has led public health officials from across the province to ask the public to take extra precautions against mosquito bites.
Dr. Mark Loeb, a professor in the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, a member of the Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Infectious Disease Research and an infectious disease specialist for Hamilton Health Sciences, offers some valuable advice on how to stay protected from this end-of-summer scourge.
An analysis by McMaster University researchers has found that workers disabled by low back pain and receiving disability benefits are more likely to stay on claim if they are treated with opioids.
"Our findings that reimbursement for early opioids is associated with longer claim duration is worrisome," said Jason Busse, lead author, an assistant professor of anesthesia and researcher with the Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Pain Research and Care at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine.
