Research Day

The 11th Annual UBC Emergency Medicine Research Day, held on April 10th, 2019, was a resounding success. The CFRI Chan Centre at BC Children’s Hospital was a gorgeous venue for our audience, which varied from 100 – 115 people on site throughout the day.

For the day’s 20 presentations we again employed the 5-minute “lightning oral” format and a 10-minute program format that both presenters and audience members enjoy. Visiting Professor Dr. Kathy Boutis, from the University of Toronto, provided expert commentary and a compelling plenary presentation titled “Three Evidence-Based Ways to Make the Diagnosis
and Management of Common Pediatric Fractures Easy…For the Patient, Doctor, and Health Care System”.

A sincere thank you to all the participants and presenters for taking the time to share your knowledge, and for helping us shape the future of emergency medicine in BC. Your attendance is what made 2019 EM Research Day such a success. Photos of the event can be found here and you can download an overview of the program. The next UBC EM Research Day will take place on April 8, 2020.
