BACKGROUND: Managed alcohol programs (MAPs) are a harm reduction strategy for people with severe alcohol dependence and unstable housing. MAPs provide controlled access to alcohol usually alongside accommodation, meals, and other supports. Patterns of alcohol consumption and related harms among MAP participants and controls from a homeless shelter in Thunder Bay, Ontario, were investigated in 2013. METHODS: Structured interviews were conducted with 18 MAP and 20 control participants assessed as alcohol dependent with most using non-beverage alcohol (NBA)...

PURPOSE: To understand the postoperative acute-care physiotherapy course for First Nations people returning after total hip replacement (THR) to remote communities with limited rehabilitation services and to evaluate length of stay and attainment of functional milestones after THR to determine to what extent an urban-based clinical pathway is transferrable to and effective for First Nations patients in a rural setting. METHODS: Data were collected retrospectively by reviewing charts of patients who underwent THR in the Northwest Ontario catchment area from 2007 through 2012...

An outbreak of type emm59 invasive group A Streptococcus (iGAS) disease was declared in 2008 in Thunder Bay District, Northwestern Ontario, 2 years after a countrywide emm59 epidemic was recognized in Canada. Despite a declining number of emm59 infections since 2010, numerous cases of iGAS disease continue to be reported in the area. We collected clinical information on all iGAS cases recorded in Thunder Bay District from 2008 to 2013. We also emm typed and sequenced the genomes of all available strains isolated from 2011 to 2013 from iGAS infections and from severe cases of soft tissue infections...

BACKGROUND: little is known about the changes and trends of individual vital signs during the course of acute illness in hospital. METHODS: the weighted points of the VitalPAC Early Warning Score (ViEWS) were assigned to each vital sign value measured on 44,531 acutely ill medical patients while they were hospitalized in the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, Ontario, Canada. These ViEWS weighted vital signs were averaged for every 24 hour period for five days after admission and five days before death or discharge and then combined to obtain an approximation of the trajectory of each vital sign while in hospital...

INTRODUCTION: The economic contribution of medical schools to major urban centres can be substantial, but there is little information on the contribution to the economy of participating communities made by schools that provide education and training away from major cities and academic health science centres. We sought to assess the economic contribution of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) to northern Ontario communities participating in NOSM's distributed medical education programs...

INTRODUCTON: Kidney stone recurrence is common. Preventive measures can lead to improved quality of life and costs savings to the individual and healthcare system. Guidelines to prevent recurrent kidney stones are published by various urological societies. Adherence to guidelines amongst healthcare professionals in general is poor, while adherence to preventive management guidelines regarding stone disease is unknown. To understand this issue, we conducted an online study to assess the knowledge, attitudes, and practice patterns of healthcare practitioners in Northern Ontario...

We determined whole-fish polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) concentrations of 25 male and 25 female age-7 ciscoes (Coregonus artedi) captured from a spawning aggregation in Thunder Bay, Lake Superior, during November 2010. We also determined PCB concentrations in the ovaries and somatic tissue of five additional female ciscoes (ages 5-22). All 55 of these ciscoes were in ripe or nearly ripe condition. Bioenergetics modeling was used to determine the contribution of the growth dilution effect toward a difference in PCB concentrations between the sexes, as females grew substantially faster than males...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a growing public health concern in Canada. Excess weight is particularly a concern among youth given that obesity in youth predicts obesity in adulthood. Eating behaviors, both inside and outside the home have been associated with increased risk of obesity; however, there is little data among Canadian youth to monitor trends. METHODS: The School Health Action, Planning and Evaluation Surveys (SHAPES) were administered in schools. Our study examined 20, 923 students (grades 5-12) from four regions in Canada...

BACKGROUND: Sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) may play a role in increased rates of obesity. This study examined patterns and frequencies of beverage consumption among youth in 3 distinct regions in Canada, and examined associations between beverage consumption and age, sex, body mass index (BMI), physical activity and dieting behavior, as well as beverage displacement. METHODS: The study included data from 10,188 youth (ages 13-18) from Hamilton and Thunder Bay, Ontario, and Prince Edward Island (PEI) in 2009 to 2010...

BACKGROUND: It is not known how often, to what extent and over what time frame any early warning scores change, and what the implications of these changes are. SETTING: Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Center, Ontario, Canada. METHODS: The averaged vital signs measured over different time periods of 44,531 consecutive acutely ill medical admissions were determined and then combined to calculate the averaged abbreviated version of the Vitalpac early warning score (AbEWS) during each time period examined...

Matt H Gardner, Rebecca Roeder
Previous accounts of the Canadian Shift have interpreted this diachronic change in vowel pronunciation as a purely phonetic consequence of the low back LOT-THOUGHT vowel merger; however, such an analysis does not transparently explain the strong connection between the (phonological) low back merger and the subsequent (phonetic) retraction of the TRAP vowel in the acoustic vowel space. This paper addresses this issue by presenting an analysis of the shift that combines the approaches of Modified Contrastive Specification theory and the Contrastive Hierarchy-two phonological frameworks-with phonetic insights from Vowel Dispersion-Focalization theory...

BACKGROUND: the development of validated early warning scores that only require the measurement of vital signs at the bedside has provided for the first time a practical and affordable method of comparing the outcomes of similar patients admitted to hospital in the developed and developing world. METHODS: we compared the outcomes of patients with the same abbreviated version of the VitalPAC early warning score at the time of hospital admission in a Canadian and Ugandan hospital...

Televisitation is the virtual transportation of a patient's family to the bedside, regardless of the patient's location within an acute care setting. This innovation in the Telemedicine Program at Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC) in Ontario, Canada, embraces the concept of patient- and family-centered care and has been identified as a leading practice by Accreditation Canada. The need to find creative ways to link patients to their family and friend supports hundreds of miles away was identified more than ten years ago...

BACKGROUND: It is not known how often, to what extent and over what time frame any early warning scores change in surgical patients, and what the implications of these changes are. SETTING: Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, Ontario, Canada.

BACKGROUND: Homeless populations have complex and diverse end-of-life care needs. However, they typically die outside of the end-of-life care system. To date, few studies have explored barriers to the end-of-life care system for homeless populations. This qualitative study involving health and social services professionals from across Canada sought to identify barriers to the end-of-life care system for homeless populations and generate recommendations to improve their access to end-of-life care...
