This study examines the best way to teach genetics to family medicine residents. First year family medicine residents at the University of Toronto will be taught basic clinical genetics as well as a specific disease in genetics via 3 different educational methods. All participants will undergo an oral examination and written knowledge test 3 months after this education. Results between groups will be compared, and the best way to teach genetics to residents determined.
In a 6-week experimental design, up to 90 adult couples in which one partner has Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) will be randomly assigned to either the collaborative implementation intentions (IIs), individual IIs condition, or a control condition. As this is a pilot study, randomization for the experimental groups vs the control groups will occur at a 2:1 ratio. Thus, the experimental conditions will contain up to 36 participants and the control condition will contain up to 18 particip...
The results from the DECODE Study have shown that postprandial (1 - 2 hours after a meal) hyperglycemia (elevated blood sugar) is more common in elderly people with diabetes than younger people with diabetes and is the best predictor of the development of complications. The DECODE Study involved 6941 people who already had diabetes and 702 who did not have diabetes. Diabetes is diagnosed when the blood sugar 1st thing in the morning is over 7.0 mmol/L. The DECODE Study showed t...
The Hanapū Study: Incentivized Partnerships to Reduce Diabetes Disparities is a randomized control trial that will test the effectiveness of partnership incentives plus evidence-based education to optimize glycemic outcomes among diabetic patients compared with usual care.
This study will describe the experience of patients with visible physical abnormalities in the genetics clinic when they are involved in teaching others about their condition. Information from this study may be used to enhance educational experiences in genetics clinics. Patients 18 years of age and older with a visible physical anomaly who have been seen by a genetics professional in the past 5 years may be eligible for this study. In a tape-recorded telephone intervie...
The goals of this study are to (1) develop and refine PET post-processing acquisition procedures, (2) generate preliminary and comparative imaging data for potential clinical trials, and (3) retrospectively evaluate standard of care PET imaging acquisitions by comparison with investigational PET imaging acquisitions.
The goal of this study is to evaluate a virtual reality-based intervention for training health care providers who are not genetics specialists to effectively communicate with and counsel patients regarding cancer genetics.
The main objective of this study is to demonstrate the non-inferiority of SPECT image quality (as measured by the signal / noise ratio) obtained by ASIR reconstruction of very-low-dose CT acquisitions versus the quality of those obtained by filtered back projection (FBP) of low-dose CT acquisitions. The lower limit of non-inferiority is set to -1, the average SPECT signal / noise ratio TEMP expected is between 5 and 6.
The study will test a hypothesis that the remote monitoring with text and email alerts sent to study subject and optional family/other caregiver (Intervention 1) will have a higher return on investment compared to remote monitoring with nurse researcher follow-up telephone communication to study subject (on Blue alerts) or study subject's healthcare professional (on Red alerts) (Intervention 2) and self-monitoring without intervention (Control).
Real-time optical surface monitoring data will be acquired from 44 human patients with primary or metastatic lung lesions during and after their 4DCT scan (standard-of-care at our institution). A patient-specific 4D model will be developed using the raw 4DCT projections time-correlated with real-time surface monitoring. In addition, before delivering each dose fraction (3 - 5 for lung SBRT), we will acquire three 15s kV fluoroscopic image acquisitions, time-correlated with opti...
This R01 tests through RCT methodology efficacy of a new intervention designed specifically to aid development of positive coparenting alliances between at-risk (unmarried, uncoupled, low income) African American mothers and fathers having a first baby together.
To investigate the genetics of asthma by reexamining a carefully characterized population of patients with asthma, and by studying their families.
This project aims to measure the impact of a physician report card (also called an audit & feedback report) on colonoscopy performance. Endoscopists in Ontario will be randomly assigned to either receive the endoscopist report card or to no feedback. Using Ontario health administrative data, the quality of colonoscopy will be compared between those who received the report card and those who do not. The investigators will also measure the effect of receiving endoscopist report c...
Impulsivity and/or hyperactivity in children has become one of the main clinical symptom for consultation, among the most frequent, in general or pediatric medicine. Among the different clinical forms of instability, ADHD appears to be an especially disabling condition for the development of the child, both in psychomotor, cognitive, emotional and relational aspects. Further, a significant link between ADHD children and some children with High Potential (HP) is observed. HP chi...
This study will explore how cultural differences influence genetics research in developing countries. Human genetics research is becoming more common in developing countries. However, when research is conducted with people living in developing countries, there is a chance that culture differences can lead to misunderstandings between investigators and participants, resulting in ineffective research. This study will explore challenges facing investigators conducting genetics res...
The current research program aims to study how sleep disordered breathing, age and genetics affect memory in older adult veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The study will help researchers and clinicians better understand the relationship among PTSD, sleep disordered breathing, genetics and memory function.
To investigate the genetics of C reactive protein in families with myocardial infarction.
To assess the risk of incident atrial fibrillation after stopping anti-hypertensive medication including beta-blockers and ACE inhibitors. Also, to assess the role of genetics in subsequent risk of stroke among patients with atrial fibrillation.
Imbio is developing a Smoking Cessation Report (Report) that includes data analysis from a CT lung cancer screening exam. This randomized controlled (RCT) trial will clinically validate the Report's effectiveness at motivating smokers to call a Quitline.
To investigate the role of genetics in cardiorespiratory fitness, obesity, and risk of hypertension.
This study is being done to test the ability of an investigational mammography camera to find small tumors in patients' breasts.
There is an urgent need for a knowledge translation strategy to facilitate the integration of genetics into family medicine, to improve the low knowledge base of most Canadian family physicians, ensure that the needs are met of those in the population who could benefit from genetic assessment, and facilitate evidence-based decision-making in the face of increasing patient demand. We have developed a multi-faceted intervention incorporating three distinct knowledge transl...
This study will examine changes in mother-child relationships when mothers are pregnant, because this period may involve conflicts between mothers and children. A widely held evolutionary theory postulates that because parents and offspring share only about 50 percent of their genes, conflicts occur and would most likely occur at times when parental investment decreases. Offspring benefit from obtaining maximal parental investment and may demand more investment than parents a...
The purpose of the Alzheimer's Disease Genetics Study is to identify the genes that are responsible for causing Alzheimer's Disease (AD). One of the ways in which the risk factor genes for late onset AD can be investigated is by identifying and collecting genetic material from families with multiple members diagnosed with late onset AD (over 60 years of age).
Background: - New studies in human genetics have revealed information about genetic connections to memory and motor behavior. Researchers are interested in investigating the role of genetics in motor learning, in conjunction with related studies taking place in the Human Motor Control Section of the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke (NINDS). Participants in motor learning studies conducted at NINDS will be asked to provide blood samples for further e...
