The Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute has unveiled a refined version of its 2020 Strategic Plan that will guide patient-centred research at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (the Hospital) for the next three years.
Clinical use of Health Information Technology (IT) is growing. The Information Technology Department is a vital component of patient care, affecting the way health care professionals, patients, and families interact to improve health care outcomes.
Art can serve many purposes. It’s been proven that artwork can be a pleasant distraction from the stress or discomfort that can often accompany a hospital stay. That’s why Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre has adorned the walls with unique and powerful Indigenous artwork.
Dr. Mitchell Albert received a Weston Brain Institute grant of $709,650 to study new ways of using HP xenon gas functional MRI for the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and treatment monitoring. The research could lead to earlier detection of this devastating disease when it is more manageable.
Some in the hospital need close monitoring due to the seriousness of their injury or illness. Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre’s Medical Emergency Team (MET) and Regional Critical Care Response (RCCR) program are essential services that deliver high quality critical care to countless patients throughout Northwestern Ontario, improving the quality of care and patient outcomes.
