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.
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 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 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.
This survey will assess discrepancies between official clinical genetics guidelines and practices within 3 West regions of France.
To investigate the genetics of asthma by reexamining a carefully characterized population of patients with asthma, and by studying their families.
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.
Childhood obesity leads to adulthood obesity, demonstrated in many retrospective and longitudinal studies. Genetics as a predictor of obesity is less established. Morandi et al, (2012) assessed whether lifestyle and genetic factors can be used to predict childhood obesity, concluding that genetics had minimal predictive effect. More recently Seyednasrollah, (2017) demonstrated that genetic information, when alongside clinical factors for cardiovascular disease, increased the pr...
To investigate the role of genetics in cardiorespiratory fitness, obesity, and risk of hypertension.
Obesity is an increasing problem for adults in the UK. Diets high in fat and sugar are the major contributors to weight gain. Individual differences in taste perception are a crucial factor in determining the investigator's choice of foods and an individual's sensitivity to the either bitter or fat taste compounds has been linked to a preference for different foods including sweet and high fat foods. Previous research has not comprehensively explored the effect of both fat and ...
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 is a national registry study to determine genetics risk factors and serial biomarkers of Acute Coronary Syndrome.
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...
This cohort study aims to assess the quality of life (or welfare) related to the health of children and adolescents with an non genetics auto-inflammatory disease PFAPA or Marshall syndrome to compare it to children or adolescents with recurrent fever genetics of Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) in order to improve their overall care.
This study will investigate how people learn best about genetics. It involves participating in activities in NHGRI's Immersive Virtual Environment Laboratory (IVE lab), where digital "virtual worlds" are created that appear to surround the subject when he or she wears a head-mounted display. English-speaking men and women between 18 and 40 years of age may be eligible for this study. Participants are randomly assigned to one of two groups, each of which receives a differ...
RATIONALE: Gathering information about genetic changes in patients with lobular carcinoma in situ of the breast may help doctors learn more about the disease and find better methods of treatment. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the genetics of women with lobular carcinoma in situ of the breast.
The goal of this research study is to test the effects of online genetic education alone or in combination with telephone genetic counseling in order to compare the two methods and the stress a person feels about their risk of cancer. Researchers also want to learn how these strategies may improve participant's understanding of genetics, participant's ability to complete a quiz about genetics, and participant's quality of life.
In this study, the investigators are looking to understand: 1) how adults ≥ 60 years old thinking and memory abilities are affected by stem cell transplant; 2) whether these changes affect day-to-day activities and quality of life; and 3) how thinking and memory abilities are affected by genetics, depression, anxiety and physical function. Genetics and other factors may affect the brain's chemicals or structure, and may increase risk for negative effects on thinking and memor...
Meal times differ from culture to culture. These differences may influence energy regulation and, consequently, body weight. Current studies support the notion that not only "what" but also "when" the investigators eat may have a significant role in obesity treatment. Recently, it has been shown that eating the main meal of the day, lunch in Spain, late in the day is predictive of difficulty in weight loss and decreased insulin sensitivity. This project aims to study in a Medit...
The purpose of the study is to understand the relationship between what an individual inherited from their family (genetics), how they respond and feel after drinking alcohol, and how they respond to pre-treatment with naltrexone, a medication that blocks some of the effects of alcohol and is approved for the treatment of alcoholism. The investigators are conducting this study on those of African descent because there is almost no research focused on this group and the associat...
Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) affects about 200,000 Canadians. Eighty percent of these cases are of unclear cause, often occuring in families. We believe that mutations in specific already-identified genes contribute to DCM in Quebec and that certain mutations may account for a significant proportion of cases due to the well-documented "founder effect". Two hundred patients with DCM followed in our Heart Function Clinic will be approached for one blood sample at their routine...
