Pediatric emergency research team hit the mark
Date:1/23/2012

You could call it paying it forward. A trip to the Emergency Department (ED) is every parent's worst nightmare. But what if the information documented as a result of your child's visit could help a child with similar symptoms a few provinces away?

Terry Klassen and his research team of leading pediatric emergency physicians at Pediatric Emergency Research of Canada (PERC) have done just that and the impact of their research is today recognized as one of the Top Canadian Achievements in Health Research in 2011. The award is bestowed jointly by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ).

Klassen, as Founding Director of PERC, generated important new knowledge that has substantially improved the outcomes of acutely ill or injured children seen in EDs in Canada and around the world.

The most comprehensive achievement has had substantial influence on how croup is treated around the world.

Klassen is a Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and Child Health at the Faculty of Medicine and Director of Research for the Manitoba Institute of Child Health (MICH). The PERC team recognized with the award today include: David Johnson (University of Calgary), Martin Osmond (University of Ottawa), Amy Plint (University of Ottawa), and Lisa Hartling (University of Alberta).
