A nurse-coordinated model of care versus usual care for stage 3/4 chronic kidney disease in the community: A randomized controlled trial.
A nurse-coordinated model of care versus usual care for stage 3/4 chronic kidney disease in the community: A randomized controlled trial.Download
Background and objectives: It is unclear how to optimally care for chronic kidney disease (CKD). This study compares a new co-ordinated model to usual care for CKD. Design, setting, participants and measurements: A randomized trial in nephrology clinics and the community included 474 patients...
Conference presentation at 2016 ABC Copyright Conference, May 27. Digitizing and sharing materials online makes our cultural heritage more accessible, supporting the dissemination of knowledge and the public good. Navigating related copyright issues, however, can weigh heavily on the...
Giardia and Cryptosporidium are waterborne pathogens that are raising public health concern worldwide. Outbreaks caused by Giardia or Cryptosporidium have been reported even after drinking water facilities have met regulatory compliance. The goal of this thesis was to examine vulnerability of the...
Design and analysis of population demographic experiments for use in environmental risk assessments for genetically modified cropsDownload
Genetically modified crops with putative fitness-enhancing traits are being field-tested throughout Canada and the world, but robust methods with which to compare their fitness with conventional cultivars are lacking. Additionally, field analyses of GM crops in non-agricultural areas are...
Design, Simulation and Evaluation of Effective Industrial Information Systems: Case of Machine Condition Monitoring and Maintenance Management Information SystemsDownload
Industrial information systems can improve the management of industrial operations by providing relevant and timely information on the status of physical assets via condition and process monitoring systems, and by enabling the effective use of data by systems and processes that restore proper...
Development and Application of BowTie Risk Assessment Methodology for Carbon Geological Storage ProjectsDownload
The objective of this research is to develop a framework for risk assessment of CO2 geological storage projects. This is achieved using the BowTie approach as a framework for capturing the failure of CO2 geological storage, and using BowTie approach to combine different failure mechanisms such as...
The construction manufacturing industry in North America has a disproportionately high number of lost-time injuries due to the high physical demand of the labour-intensive tasks it involves. It is essential to investigate the physical demands of body movement in the construction manufacturing...
Canada is the worldâs largest producer and exporter of field peas (Pisum sativum L.). Plant productivity can be greatly reduced by biotic and abiotic stresses, including fungal diseases and drought. Biotechnological tools are available for enhancing tolerance against these stresses. We...
Communicating risk information to promote adoption of protective behaviours was challenging during the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic. Focus group research in Alberta, Canada involving 65 seniors aged 65 and older suggests this population had difficulty comprehending risk information due to...
