CHEO Discovery Minute

Were you part of a CHEO Research Institute study? We couldn’t make discoveries today for healthier children tomorrow without the generous contribution of patients and families! CHEO Discovery Minutes are part of our commitment to sharing the results of our work with the people who were part of it.
In this CHEO Discovery Minute, Dr. Stephen Feder explains the results of the publication Exploring the association between eating disorders and gender dysphoria in youth, published in Eating Disorders: Journal of Treatment and Prevention Authors : Stephen Feder, Leanna Isserlin, Emily Seale, Nicole Hammond and Mark L. Norris. Volume 25, 2017 - Number 4, Pages 310-317

In this bilingual CHEO Discovery Minute, Karine Toupin April shares the work of her research team in determining effective pain management options for youth with juvenile arthritis. From here, they will develop an app that will help young people track what works.

Dr. Dayre McNally is a pediatric intensivist with the CHEO Research Institute. In this Discovery Minute, Dr. McNally explains his research into vitamin D deficiency and the effect it can have on very sick children admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and how he hopes to improve the health of ill children by safely and rapidly correcting their vitamin D levels.

A long-asked research question has finally been answered: is it possible to prevent Type 1 diabetes by altering the kind of formula that infants are exposed to in the first months of life? In this CHEO Discovery Minute, Margaret Lawson shares the results of the 14-year Trial to Reduce IDDM in the Genetically at Risk (TRIGR) study.
In this video, Children hospitalized for asthma are to leave the hospital earlier thanks to research done by Catherine Pound and her team. In this Discovery Minute, Dr. Pound shares that, in their randomized controlled trial, nurses could wean children off their asthma medication as safely and effectively as physicians. This relieved the pressure on busy physicians, improved the use of nursing resources. When asked about their experience, families reported a high satisfaction with the care received and felt that their needs were met. 
Dr. Mario Cappelli shares his results on his study entitled: A hospital Emergency Department is often a first point of contact when families are facing mental health challenges. Knowing what services and resources are available during and after an ED visit is essential in supporting patients and families. This research team wanted to know if families were able to access the resources provided and if they were satisfied with them. Watch his CHEO Discovery Minute below.
