The development of high quality research is one of St. Mary Hospital Centre’s top priorities, especially in light of its designation as a Centre Hospitalier Affilié Universitaire (CHAU).
In 2008, the St. Mary’s Research Centre and Foundation have created the C.A.R.E. (Competition Attracting Research Excellence) Program to support projects that contribute towards the development of clinical and health services research capacity at SMHC and have the potential to result in increased external research funding and peer-reviewed publications.
In particular, the aim of the C.A.R.E. program is to help staff members interested in research gain valuable experience in designing and leading a research project that is attuned to the needs and priorities of the Hospital.
We are delighted to announce a 2022 C.A.R.E. recipient: Dr. Anthony Albers, orthopedist, for the project “Prospective randomized study comparing suprainguinal fascia iliaca block vs. pericapsular nerve group block vs. local anesthetic infiltration vs spinal anesthetic without adjuncts for pain control following total hip arthroplasty”. Dr. Albers is awarded $29,972 over two years.
C.A.R.E. grants support projects that contribute to the development of clinical and health services research capacity at SMHC and have the potential to result in increased external research funding and peer-reviewed publications.
