Whose burden? A comprehensive approach to describing burden of disease by synthesizing evidence from diverse perspectivesDownload
Epidemiologists tasked with addressing public concerns about a specific health issue and developing effective public health strategies aimed at reducing related health risks must begin by describing the extent of the health threat in the target population. Typical approaches use quantitative...
Individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) have an increased risk of bladder cancer, relative to non-diabetic individuals. We aimed to investigate factors that may influence this association. Some reports suggest an association between the glucose-lowering drug pioglitazone and bladder cancer. Our...
Cholera remains epidemic and endemic in the world, causing thousands of deaths annually in locations lacking adequate sanitation and water infrastructure. Yet its dynamics are still not fully understood. An indirectly transmitted infectious disease model, called an iSIR model, was recently...
The relationship between body mass index, treatment, and mortality in patients with established coronary artery disease:a report from APPROACH.Download
Our objective was to examine the association between body mass index (BMI) and survival according to the type of treatment in individuals with established coronary artery disease (CAD). Methods and results: Patients with CAD were identified in the Alberta Provincial Project for Outcome Assessment...
Objectives: To describe the incidence and pattern of traumatic spinal cord injury and cauda equina injury (SCI) in a geographically defined region of Canada. Methods: The study period was April 1, 1997 to March 31, 2000. Data were gathered from three provincial sources: administrative data from...
Mental health disorders are a significant problem facing children. Emerging research suggests there is a link between nutrition and mental health. This thesis examines the association between diet quality and mental health in children. The first objective was to examine the cross-sectional...
Background: Venous thromboembolism (VTE), comprises both deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). It is a common acute cardiovascular event associated with increased long-term morbidity, disability, all-cause mortality, and high rates of recurrence. Major advances in diagnosis,...
Modifiable cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors, such as adiposity, are already associated with atherosclerotic progression in childhood. Less is known about whether physical activity (PA) is associated with progression of atherosclerosis in non-clinical samples of children. This...

Simultaneous temporal trends in dementia incidence and prevalence, 2005–2013: A population-based retrospective cohort study in Saskatchewan, CanadaDownload
Background: Original studies published over the last decade regarding time trends in dementia report mixed results. The aims of the present study were to use linked administrative health data for the province of Saskatchewan for the period 2005/2006 to 2012/2013 to: (1) examine simultaneous...
Varicella vaccine was licensed in Canada in 1998, and a publicly funded vaccination programme introduced in the province of Alberta in 2001. In theory the vaccination programme might increase the burden of disease from shingles, making it important to develop baseline data against which future...
