CHEO Discovery Minute
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of chronic gastrointestinal disorders in which people have ulceration, inflammation, and bleeding of their gastrointestinal tract, and are at risk for complications in other parts of the body. People with IBD have an elevated risk of mental illness, especially anxiety and depression, potentially related to the inflammation in the gut affecting their brain. In this Discovery Minute, Dr. Eric Benchimol shares the results of a study where he and fellow researchers asked if women with IBD were at greater risk of developing a new mental illness during pregnancy and after giving birth compared to the overall population.

Expand the Role of Patients, the True Experts, in Neuromuscular Disease Research, Concludes International Workshop

Shared decision-making seen as an important instrument to obtain better research results and gain support and acceptance from the wider public, according to a new position paper published in the Journal of Neuromuscular Diseases
 
Ottawa, February 6, 2019 – The old-fashioned paternalistic relationship between doctors and patients has gradually evolved into a more collaborative one in the era of patient-centered medicine. Shared decision-making (SDM), in which doctors and patients jointly decide on treatment or care, has emerged as a gold standard model of healthcare.

A position paper in the Read More

New Research Shows that Women with Inflammatory Bowel Disease Are at Greater Risk of Mental Illness Postpartum
For every 43 pregnancies, there is one extra case of mental illness in a woman with IBD

OTTAWA, January 10, 2019 – A study published today in the journal Gut shows that women with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are at greater risk of developing a mental illness after giving birth compared to the overall population. Study authors found that more than one-fifth of pregnant women with IBD had a new-onset mental health diagnosis. For every 43 pregnancies, there is one extra case of mental illness in a woman with IBD, compared to other women. The study used healthcare data on women who gave birth between 2002 and 2014 in Ontario, Canada to analyze the frequency of a new mental illness diagnosis in these women during and up to one year after a pregnancy.
