Full Text: Nephrology started in 1983 and for the past 14 years I have been working in clinical nephrology research under the supervision of Dr. Sandra Donnelly. I obtained my post graduate diploma in clinical epidemiology in 2004 at the University of Toronto and I hope to complete doctoral studies in vascular access research at the University of Toronto Institute of Medical Science in a couple of years. The focus of my thesis is in vascular access for hemodialysis, specifically fistula maturation and cannulation practices.


I wish to thank CANNT for supporting my research. This grant will help me complete a project entitled: "Development of cannulation skill with the use of bedside ultrasound in phantom models". The objective of this project is to develop added support to help nursing staff obtain cannulation skills in environments in which there is minimal exposure to cannulation practice.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff in the Nephrology Research Office at St. Michael's Hospital: Stella Curvelo, Niki Dacouris, Sanja Neskovic, Jennie Huckle, and St. Michael's Hospital Vascular Access Coordinator Joyce Hunter for providing continuous support in the development and implementation of these projects.
