Announcing New COF Research Award Recipients

Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has halted many projects around the globe, the COF is pleased to announce that research programs are continuing. Thanks to previously-secured funding, we are able to award the following two research projects:

2020 Community Innovation Award:

Dr. Marie Gdalevitch (Montreal, QC) for her research proposal entitled:
“Randomized comparison between narcotic free multimodal anesthesia and standard of care anesthesia for ahllux valgus patients undergoing a percutaneous distal metatarsal osteotomy: a multi-center trial”

BRAND NEW THIS YEAR:  2020 CSES Research Grant:

In collaboration with the Canadian Shoulder and Elbow Society, this award was established to support and encourage orthopaedic surgeons to conduct collaborative shoulder or elbow research.

Dr. Danny P. Goel (Vancouver, BC) for his research proposal entitled:
“Immersive Virtual Reality Effectiveness in Orthopaedic Education: A Randomized Controlled Trial”

All applications were reviewed and ranked by the Foundation’s Research Review Panel.

On behalf of the Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation’s Board of Directors, Research Committee and Staff, congratulations to the recipients and thanks to all who took the time to apply.
