An integrated web-based mental health intervention of assessment-referral-care to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression in hospitalized pregnant women with medically high-risk pregnancies: a feasibility study protocol of hospital-based implementationDownload
Background: At prevalence rates of up to 40%, rates of depression and anxiety among women with medically complex pregnancies are 3 times greater than those in community-based samples of pregnant women. However, mental health care is not a component of routine hospital-based antenatal care for...
This thesis consists of 2 closely linked projects that evaluate the importance of depressive symptoms (hereafter, for brevity, referred to as “depression”) for short-term prognosis after general medical hospitalizations. Project 1 systematically reviews the literature to examine whether...
Gastric cancer is an aggressive malignancy. Much of the mortality is attributable to delayed diagnosis from non-specific symptoms, and lack of early and accurate screening modalities. Metabolomics, the most downstream of the “omics” sciences (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics) is the latest...
Carbon dioxide capture using adsorption based separation processes has shown promise but has not been exploited to full potential to be implemented on a commercial scale. This thesis examines two key stages in the development of adsorption based carbon dioxide capture processes, namely adsorbent...

Background Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is a prevalent problem in cancer and has a side effect of treatment that often worsens during cancer treatment and can persist as a long-term problem for many patients including those in palliative care and cancer survivor populations. Reported prevalence...
Cancer is the leading cause of death from disease among adolescents in Canada. Although cancer is a well-researched disease process in the medical and nursing literature, adolescence is relatively understudied, with minimal evidence on strategies to promote healthy emotional adjustment...
Public views of acceptability of perinatal mental health screening and treatment preference: A population based survey.Download
Background At a prevalence rate of 13-25%, mental health problems are among the most common morbidities of the prenatal and postnatal periods. They have been associated with increased risk of preterm birth and low birthweight, child developmental delay, and poor child mental health. However, very...
Enhancing screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment among socioeconomically disadvantaged patients: Study protocol for a knowledge exchange intervention involving patients and physicians.Download
Background Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral for Treatment (SBIRT) is an effective approach for managing alcohol and other drug misuse in primary care; however, uptake into routine care has been limited. Uptake of SBIRT by healthcare providers may be particularly problematic for...
Pancreatic cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related death, due to its aggressive biology, lack of tools for early diagnosis and screening, advanced presentation and resistance to adjuvant therapy. Metabolomics, the newest of the “omics” sciences, may offer the potential for non-invasive...
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a major public health concern. The current population-based screening method used world-wide is fecal occult blood testing (FOBT), however this test has very low sensitivity for both colorectal cancer and adenomatous (pre-cancerous) polyps and is associated with low...
