Dr. Jacques Lee
Dr. Jacques Lee is a clinician-scientist in the Trauma, Emergency & Critical Care Research Program at Sunnybrook Research Institute. His research focuses on the management of acute pain in the emergency department and improving the care of older persons who access the health care system. The Canadian Institutes of Health Research recently awarded him a one-year catalyst grant worth $89,178 through the eHealth Innovations for Aging program. Lee will test an interactive computer program that checks a patient’s ability to think clearly in the emergency department. He hopes the technology will enable hospital staff to predict which patients are becoming delirious, and take action to prevent delirium among this group. He is also the director of the emergency medicine research program at Sunnybrook.
