National Update


The next Candrive Common Cohort Investigator Meeting will take place October 24th and 25th in Ottawa. Hosted by co-principal investigators, Dr. Shawn Marshall and Dr. Malcolm Man-Son-Hing, and Program Manager Lynn Macleay, site investigators and researchers from Canada, Michigan and Australia will attend the two-day meeting to discuss, among other things, publications and presentations from study findings and future directions of the study.


Site investigators meet every 6-8 weeks during the course of the year via teleconference to address issues, concerns and to make any decisions, ensuring there is a true collaborative approach to conducting the study.


In Canada we are preparing for Year 3 assessments beginning in July and are currently reviewing minor changes to the assessment protocol.


Year 1 data analysis is now underway with results to be documented in publications and findings presented in various formats.


Candrive has been developing an electronic 'tool' to capture all information pertaining to the study to better communicate the research results to stakeholders. this Knowledge Translation Tool is currently being tested and is to be ready for researchers to use in October.
