Recruitment for the HEMOTION Trial is progressing well at the CHU de Québec-University Laval. We are looking forward to starting this new trial with the other Canadian and UK sites.
The HEMOTION Trial Start-up Meeting was held in Lake Louise, on January 22, 2018. Site investigators and research coordinators from the Canadian participating sites attended the meeting. Drs. Alexis Turgeon, Dean Fergusson and François Lauzier are the principal investigators of this multicenter randomized controlled trial aimed at establishing the optimal transfusion strategy in patients with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury.
The winter meeting of the Canadian Critical Care Trials Group (CCCTG) was held from January 22nd to the 25th followed by the Canadian Traumatic brain injury Research Consortium (CTRC) held on January 25th and 26th. The first morning session of the CTRC was held jointly with the CCCTG. These two collaborative research networks aim at promoting, developing and consolidating collaborations between researchers accross Canada in the fields of critical care medicine and TBI, respectively.
