ABOUT SPECIFIC PROJECTS:

Our funded studies and associated research output

Specific Project
EVALUATION PLATFORM IN COPD (EPIC)

EPIC is a comprehensive epidemiologic and decision-analytic model for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Canada.

See 7 publications

Specific Project
ACUTE COPD EXACERBATION PREDICTION TOOL (ACCEPT)

The Acute COPD Exacerbation Prediction Tool (ACCEPT) is a validated clinical prediction model that predicts rate and severity of COPD exacerbations.

Specific Project
PRISM: PROGRAMMABLE INTERFACE FOR STATISTICAL & SIMULATION MODELS

PRISM is a platform that makes decision-analytics and clinical prediction models accessible on the cloud. PRISM enables end-users to intract with the model they are interested in, without worrying about having the required hardware resources, or setting up complex code on their computer.

Specific Project
EHEALTH TOOLS FOR PRECISION MEDICINE IN COPD

This CIHR-funded project aims at devloping and validating prediction tools for precision disease management for COPD, and implementing such tools as Web Apps to be freely accessible to the patient and care provider community.

Specific Project
NATURAL HISTORY AND PATTERNS OF MEDICATION USE IN ASTHMA

This project, sponsored by an arm's length reserch contract with AstraZeneca Canada, harnesses population-based administrative health databases of British Columbia to update our esitmates of the recent trends in medication use in asthma. The emphasis of this project is on the use of short-acting beta agonists and systemic corticosteroids and how their pattern of use is evolving in patients with asthma.

Specific Project
PRECISION HEALTH IN CHILDHOOD AND ADULT ASTHMA

This is an exciting multidiciplinary project on Precision Health in children and adult asthma. This project has spon off from our lab's involvement in a major Genome Canada grant (PI: [Dr. Stuart Turvey](https://bcchr.ca/our-research/researchers/results/Details/stuart-turvey)). We plan to develop Whole Disease Policy models for childhood and adult lung health and provide rigorous decision-theoretic lens to biomarker discovery activities that target lung health in children and adults.

Specific Project
ECONOMIC BURDEN OF ASTHMA (EBA)

EBA was a one-year, prospective study of a population-based random sample of 622 patients with asthma in British Columbia, with the main objective of estimating the burden of asthma in terms of its direct costs, indirect costs, and quality of life.
