Integrating knowledge generation and translation: a unique research program to study the population-level clinical outcomes, health utilization and health services delivery for patients with glomerulonephritis in BC

Glomerulonephritis (GN) is a group of immune diseases that target the kidney and affect younger and otherwise healthy people. Although each type of GN is rare, the group overall is likely a substantial burden to the healthcare system because 25% of dialysis patients have kidney failure due to GN. While GN can be treated with immune medications, these have side effects and many patients progress to dialysis despite treatment.

Increasing awareness and improving outcomes of children with developmental coordination disorder in British Columbia

Developmental coordination disorder (DCD) is one of the most common conditions in children, affecting five to six percent of the school-age population. In British Columbia, this is about 40,000 children, or one-two children in every classroom. Children who were born prematurely are especially likely to have DCD; nearly half will develop it. Children with DCD find it hard to learn motor skills and perform everyday activities, such as getting dressed, tying shoelaces, using a fork and knife, printing, riding a bicycle, or playing sports.
