Thank you to the Auxiliary to BC Women’s for their recent donation supporting research in obstetrics and maternal fetal medicine.

February 9 2017 3:23am
This donation of $88,000 supports research conducted by BC Women’s doctors who are on the front lines; generating the questions and finding the answers that will change care practices and ultimately save lives.

Research that is led by physicians like Dr. Janet Lyons, who is passionate about leading research that looks at medical interventions in pregnancy.  Interventions like the timing of inductions to jump-start labour, or whether certain interventions increase or decrease injury to mom or baby. “There are so many decisions we make everyday as physicians, so many things we can tweak to change and improve maternal and fetal outcomes. I want to make sure as physicians we have more evidence to guide our choices about how we manage pregnancies so we can deliver the best care to women and babies.”

“By supporting BC Women’s clinician-research team to undertake leading research in maternity care, the Auxiliary is helping to cultivate the next generation of stellar researchers, and ensure we realize the best outcomes for moms and babies.”

- Dr. Ken Lim, Head, Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine
