New study on compassion in Alberta emergency departments linked to quality care
UCalgary Nursing professor Shane Sinclair says results show compassion cannot be considered 'optional' The news is rife these days about the quality of health care in Alberta. This includes increased wait times in emergency departments (ED), with some physicians referring to these and other quality-care issues as a capacity crisis.

Researchers warn of unprecedented arsenic release from wildfires
Researchers warn of unprecedented arsenic release from wildfires
The wildfire season of 2023 was the most destructive ever recorded in Canada and a new study suggests the impact was unprecedented. It found that four of the year's wildfires in mine-impacted areas around Yellowknife, Northwest Territories potentially contributed up to half of the arsenic that wildfires emit globally each year.

Is holding a referendum on equality stressful for LGBTIQ+ people?
When Switzerland asked its citizens whether they believed sexual and gender minorities should be allowed to marry and adopt children, it took a taxing toll, says UdeM researcher Robert-Paul Juster. How did Switzerland's 2021 referendum on marriage equality, adoption and reproductive rights affect the well-being of the country's LGBTIQ+ community? A new international study involving Université de Montréal suggests that LGBTIQ+ individuals and their cisgender heterosexual allies exhibited more stress hormones during the controversial campaign.

Stress granules play an unsuspected role in blood vessel formation
A study published in Nature Communications raises new hope for the development of treatments for vascular disease, cancer and diabetic retinopathy. The behaviour of the cells that make up our blood vessels is crucial to our well-being. Conditions such as inflammation, oxygen deprivation and viral infection can stress these cells and disrupt the formation of new, often pathological, blood vessels.

UCalgary study advances the frontiers of quantum batteries
Physics prof's groundbreaking research shows significant progress in addressing miniaturization issues When we think about charging a battery, we typically imagine that the charge flows one way. For example, when we plug our smartphones in at night, we think of the charge as flowing from the outlet into the phone's battery.

Researchers predict fewer, pricier strawberries as temperatures warm
Study examined effect of rising temperatures on California's crop  Strawberries could be fewer and more expensive because of higher temperatures caused by climate change, according to research from the University of Waterloo. Using a new method of analysis, the researchers found that a rise in temperature of 3 degrees Fahrenheit could reduce strawberry yields by up to 40 per cent.

Combining Indigenous knowledge and deep learning to support safer on-ice travel
Warming temperatures mean shorter ice seasons for Inuit in Sanikiluaq, Nunavut. Of equal concern is the growing unpredictability of the ice packs used to travel and hunt. Small polynyas, where ocean currents, wind or other processes prevent ice from forming, can be very dangerous and must be spotted before travelling.

Loneliness increases risk of age-related memory loss
About a third of Canadians feel lonely, and a study from the University of Waterloo shows it has a greater negative impact on memory than even social isolation, though both present a significant risk to the aging population. Loneliness is a subjective emotion that people might feel even while engaging in social activities.

AI-powered antenna revolutionizes bone fracture diagnosis
AI-powered antenna revolutionizes bone fracture diagnosis
A University of Waterloo engineer has paired inexpensive wireless communication antennas with artificial intelligence (AI) to improve how doctors can detect bone fractures. Determining bone fractures using traditional diagnostic methods such as x-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) takes time - such equipment is not readily available in ambulances or primary care facilities and, with health care services in high demand, many people have to wait for an x-ray or scan once they arrive at the hospital.

Eating disorders among adolescents during the COVID-19 pandemic
A new study confirms the need to consider the indirect effects of health measure to promote the health and wellness of youth. A new study led by Nadia Roumeliotis , clinician-researcher at CHU Sainte-Justine and professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Université de Montréal, shows that the public health measures imposed in Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic were directly related to the hospitalization rate for adolescents aged 12 to 17 for eating disorders.

Found with Webb: a potentially habitable world
A team of astronomers from UdeM has made an exciting discovery about the temperate exoplanet LHS 1140 b: it could be a promising "super-Earth" covered in ice or water. When the exoplanet LHS 1140 b was first discovered, astronomers speculated that it might be a mini-Neptune: an essentially gaseous planet, but very small in size compared to Neptune.
