We are pleased to announce that both TRANSFORM HF’s applicants to the 2022 CIHR Health Systems Impact Fellows (HSI) competition, Sarah Lawrason and Samuel Petrie, were successful!
Learning about entrepreneurship is an ongoing process that should start with a program like ECHO Discovery.
Together, the Translational Biology & Engineering Program and TRANSFORM HF designed ECHO Discovery to introduce trainees to the world of ideation, research translation, and entrepreneurship.
ECHO Discovery provides an advantage to trainees who choose to pursue either a start-up or career in industry, health care, or government.
TRANSFORM HF members had the opportunity to participate in the On the Land Indigenous Education Program led by Dr. Angela Mashford-Pringle In May 2022.
Participants explored culturally-safe, strengths-based, and healing-informed clinical and research practices through hands-on, land-based learning.
TRANSFORM HF is very grateful to Dr. Angela Mashford-Pringle, her team, and the Elders and Cultural Knowledge Keepers and Helpers who made On the Land such an impactful experience.
Darshan Brahmbhatt’s interest in heart failure innovations and remote monitoring led him to become a 2021 TRANSFORM HF Trainee.
As his Trainee Award comes to a close, we sat down with Darshan to talk about his research over the past year and where he sees the field of digital health heading.
In a Canadian population of older ethnic adults living with heart failure, what is the impact of engaging family caregivers in a model of shared virtual care to support technology use and symptom management?
This is the question Dr. Quynh Pham and her team set out to answer as they build Medly Caretown, a family-centered shared virtual care model for patient-caregiver pairs.
TRANSFORM HF, UHN & Weeneebayko Area Health Authority Collaborate for Equitable Access to Heart Failure Care
TRANSFORM HF co-lead Dr. Heather Ross (Head, Division of Cardiology UHN-SHS) led a team to Moosonee and Moose Factory in May to continue to deepen our partnership with Weeneebayko Area Health Authority.
Following a COVID-imposed hiatus, the collaboration to address heart failure in the Weeneebayko region was renewed with a visit consisting of in-person clinics, community outreach, and a sharing circle.
In recognition of the importance of increasing patient agency in heart failure research, TRANSFORM HF hosted a workshop to introduce and contextualize principles and practices to engage people with lived experience in research.
This recorded workshop will help viewers understand the history and evidence for patient engagement and partnership in research, learn principles and best practices for high-quality engagement, and explore applications in heart failure research in our current Canadian research landscape.
TRANSFORM HF is pleased to announce the recipients of their 2022 Trainee Awards! Learn more about the heart failure trainees and their projects.
