A Pan Canadian Practice Guideline for Screening, Assessment, and Management of Cancer-Related Fatigue in Adults (Version 2)Download
Howell, Doris, Keshavarz, Homa, Broadfield, Larry, Hack, Tom, Hamel, Marc, Harth, Tamara, Jones, Jennifer, McLeod, Deborah, Olson, Karin, Phan, Stephanie, Sawka, Annie, Swinton, Nelda, Ali, Muhammad U.
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...
Deep tissue injury (DTI) is particularly serious subtype of pressure ulcer that first starts in the muscle layers over bony prominences as a result of unrelieved loading. Intermittent electrical stimulation (IES) induced muscle contractions have shown potential for prevention of DTI through...
An Investigation of Early Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis Patients using Diffusion Tensor Imaging and SpectroscopyDownload
Hazlin Zaini, Zhang Chen, Min Liu, Fabrizio Giuliani, Chris Hanstock, Christian Beaulieu. Altered white matter connectivity between early Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis patients, Abstract # 3610. Proceedings of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, 21st Annual...
Can caffeine alter blood potassium concentration or the perception of pain and fatigue after a 1 km cycling sprint?Download
Caffeine is used by some athletes to improve endurance performance, however, the mechanism(s) by which caffeine elicits performance improvements have been unclear. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of caffeine on pain perception, fatigue perception, plasma catecholamine...
Characterization and Modeling of Natural-Fibres-Reinforced composites (Moisture Absorption Kinetics, Monotonic Behaviour and Cyclic Behaviour)Download
Natural fibres have been shown to offer a good potential in replacing or supplementing synthetic fibres in composite material applications. To fully utilize these new materials in design, however, engineering models of the mechanical behaviour need to be developed and ...

Effective Utilization of Distributed and Renewable Energy Resources to Stabilize and Enhance Smart Power Grids PerformanceDownload
Clean and renewable energy resources such as wind power and photovoltaics, along with advanced environmentally-friendly loads like electric vehicles, will be significant components of future grids. These resources are rapidly increasing, but they have an inherent tendency to degrade system...
Coped beams are susceptible to fatigue cracking in the web at the cope radius when subjected to tension in the coped region. Use of an adhesively bonded composite patch over the crack can reduce the stress concentration and delay further crack growth. This report contains the results of a...
Full-Scale Testing of the Fatigue Life of Laser Additive Manufacturing Repaired Alloy Steel ComponentsDownload
Laser additive manufacturing, or laser cladding, is a weld overlay technique that is being increasingly used for hardfacing and corrosion resistant overlays and dimensional repairs of oil and gas, petrochemical, and mining components. However, laser cladding's use in industry is currently limited...
This study describes the experiences of four groups of healthcare providers who facilitate exercise interventions for people with multiple sclerosis (MS)-related fatigue. Fatigue is a complex symptom frequently experienced by people with MS, yet it is poorly understood by clinicians and clinical...
