On the evening of Tuesday, October 17 more than 170 people gathered at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts for BRA (Breast Reconstruction Awareness) Day, a special event geared to educating and informing women about their options around breast cancer treatment.
Home owners across Ontario are making small changes such as replacing lightbulbs, turning down thermostats and doing loads of laundry in off-peak hours all in an effort to become more energy efficient. The same goes for hospitals who are now receiving support through the Provincial Government’s new Hospital Energy Efficiency Program (HEEP).
A new initiative out of the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario is helping patients stay out of the hospital and receive their chemotherapy treatment at home.
Known as the Chemotherapy at Home program, this initiative allows patients who require continuous chemotherapy to receive it through a pump that they wear as they go about their day. This change has been a positive step for patients who previously had to stay in the hospital to receive their chemotherapy treatment.

Each year more than 15 million babies are born premature and one million of those children die as a result of complications due to their pre-term birth.
Every few years a new piece of technology is released that can dramatically change the way medical teams provide care to their patients. Now, Canadian surgeons and researchers have partnered with a team in the U.K. to develop a tool that will transform the way cancer is surgically removed in the future.
During surgery, medical teams balance the need to remove all of a tumour, while at the same time not removing too much healthy tissue. In the operating room this is often complicated by the fact that tumours do not have smooth edges.
High-risk newborn infants in intensive care at Kingston Health Sciences Centre will be the first in Canada to be monitored and evaluated for their feeding skills in a novel research initiative led by Dr. Kimberly Dow.
Her 30-month project will study the use of a nipple-monitoring device in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at KHSC’s Kingston General Hospital site, with an aim of better identifying and addressing feeding difficulties in pre-term babies.
For some, Halloween is a time for parties, trick-or-treating and other spooky activities that typically come along with October 31.
For others, like the patients and families in KHSC’s Pediatrics Unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) it’s a time to forget they’re in the hospital, even for a few moments, and focus on having some fun.
To celebrate, staff on our Kidd 10 pediatrics department got into the spirit and dressed up for the occasion. Our NICU staff also helped ensure our smallest patients were decked out in costumes as well.
