Jeff Brubacher Receives $1.36M in research funding from Health Canada

Congratulations to Dr. Jeff Brubacher and his research team for being awarded $1.36M over 36 months for their national study “Monitoring and Preventing Impaired Driving in Canada”. The study will measure drug levels in injured drivers from ten trauma centres across Canada, in addition to four centres in BC. The goal of this project is to document how alcohol, recreational drugs, and impairing medications contribute to Motor Vehicle Crashes.

Dr. Brubacher’s research focuses broadly on injury prevention with a special interest in drug-impaired driving, substance abuse and injury, and patient safety in the emergency department.
