Thursday, June 13, 2013,"Modelling the Inpatient Resource Utilization of Chronic Dialysis Patients: Using Systems Dynamics to Model the Flow of Chronic Dialysis Patients at UHN", presented by Shoshana Hahn-Goldberg
1. To understand how computer simulation modeling can be used to create a predictive model of patient flow in and out of the hospital.
2. To describe the unique challenges when developing funding models and hospital resource planning for chronic dialysis patients.
3. To describe the nephrology operational modeling project, a collaboration of the Centre for Innovation in Complex Care and the Ontario Renal Network, and provide results of the pilot study at UHN.
Take the University (Munk) elevators to the 13th floor and follow the hallway. Enter into the clinical reception area and proceed through the doorway marked Tropical Medicine. Turn right and walk east down the clinical corridor to the end. The CICC meeting room (13 N 1382) is the last door on your left.

"The Value of Hybrid Imaging Agents During
Endoscopic Surgery", presented by Fijs Van Leeuwen, PhD
To provide surgeons with optimal guidance during interventions, it is crucial that the molecular imaging data generated in the diagnostic departments finds its way to the operating room. Sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy provides a textbook example in which imaging data acquired in the department of nuclear medicine guides the surgical management of patients. When SLN biopsy is performed in complex anatomy and/or via a (robot assisted) laparoscopic approach, traditional radio guidance is insufficient. This presentation discusses technological innovations that can help improve surgical guidance during SLN biopsy procedures, e.g. hybrid tracers, surgical navigation and fluorescence guidance. Ultimately, the same technologies can also be used in combination with tumor specific tracers to enable accurate tumor resection.
Project Re.Vision: Digital Storytelling Workshop
Friday, June 14 - Sunday, June 16, 2013
9AM - 5PM each day
Are you a medical doctor? Please join us for a free digital storytelling workshop in downtown Toronto.
Digital stories are three to five minute videos made on laptops. During a three day workshop, people learn the fundamentals of representation, storytelling and filmmaking. Participants will explore: How do perceptions of disability or difference influence interactions in health care settings?
