Visual impairment and eye care utilization in the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging

Date: Tuesday, December 12, 2017
Time: 12PM - 1PM
Type: Other
Department: CLSA / Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact
Location: Webinar

Description:

In this webinar presentation, Dr. Freeman will share the design and results of her research study, the goal of which was to determine the frequency and determinants of visual impairment and eye care utilization in Canada. Data were used from 30,097 CLSA participants aged 45-85 years old, and visual acuity was measured with both eyes open using a letter chart while participants wore their usual prescription for distance, if any. Visual impairment was defined as visual acuity worse than 20/40. Dr. Freeman will reveal the risk factors identified in this study and share the preliminary results. She will also explain geographic variations identified in the participant sample and explore considerations around the efforts needed to reduce uncorrected refractive error and to ensure that Canadians have access to appropriate eye care.


Speakers:

Dr. Ellen Freeman, associate professor in the School of Epidemiology and Public Health at the University of Ottawa.

The Use of Cost-Effective Analysis in Surgical Clinical Research to Make Leadership Decisions

Date: Thursday, January 11, 2018
Time: 12 PM - 1:30 PM
Type: Forum
Department: Health Leadership Academy
Location: Health Sciences Centre, Room HSC 1A3 (purple section), McMaster University, 1280 Main St W, Hamilton ON

Description:

In most jurisdictions health care systems are under stress as the demands for health care exceed most systems' ability to provide them. Although this problem has been highlighted over 40 years ago no solution is in sight. Multiple vested interests conspire to maintain ailing health care systems in a state of chronic inertia. The use of cost-effectiveness analysis in clinical research and translation in clinical practice is a possible solution. In this presentation, Dr Achilles Thoma will talk about the use of cost-effectiveness analysis in surgery, and specifically plastic surgery, explaining how this can assist in making leadership decisions in the prudent allocation of scarce health care resources in our health care system.


Speakers:

His other training included a fellowship in Head and Neck Surgery in 1981 at St. Joseph's Hospital. He was then awarded a McLaughlin scholarship to study Hand Surgery and Microsurgery in Louisville, Kentucky. While practicing, Dr. Thoma has received his Master's in Health Research Methodology in the Department of Clinical Epidemiology from McMaster University.

He returned to Hamilton in 1983 and established the Head and Neck Microsurgery Service at St. Joseph's Hospital and the training microsurgery lab in the same institution.
