  • Ban the tech. Pass the tech. | Alberta Medical Association
    market the Calgary chapter and reach out to Calgary area schools willing to participate in the initiative So far the Calgary chapter has presented to six schools The students really like our presentations added Iglinski The graphic images we use are different than the public safety announcements on safe driving We show them that the consequences of careless driving are often very gruesome Both Edmonton and Calgary chapters are partners with the Coalition for Cellphone Free Driving a group of companies and organizations who are committed to reducing cell phone use while driving The coalition is led by Dr Louis Hugo Francescutti an Edmonton area emergency physician and the president elect of the Canadian Medical Association For Iglinski Dr Francescutti is setting a wonderful example of physician advocacy and leadership We always think about the work of physicians as simply treating diseases or conditions added Iglinski I think it is equally important for physicians to be advocates and share with government and other organizations some of the key problems we see in our society many of which can be prevented with proper education and increased awareness The chapter is planning to expand its reach to more Calgary area schools with a brand new group of medical student volunteers for the new semester Early intervention strategies for children exposed to domestic violence U of A resident physician Dr Maryana Duchcherer believes in the value of preventive care even in the field of psychiatry Many psychiatric patients have had traumatic experiences in their childhood said Dr Duchcherer From what I have observed this trauma doesn t go away without having some significant impact on their later lives In fact according to Dr Duchcherer traumatized toddlers and preschool children have a tendency to express their stress by adopting various patterns of attachment and expressing distinct emotions She believes it is possible to prevent further development of behavioral cognitive or psychiatric issues by identifying these patterns and intervening in formative childhood years This is where her project fits in Its main objective is to help affected children gain confidence in expressing their thoughts and feelings It also promotes the value of sharing and engaging in positive interactions with other peers with the use of technology Technology affords us a set of new tools that we can use to create positive outcomes in any form of intervention Dr Duchcherer explained Personally as I do rounds in child psychology I have noticed that technology makes a huge difference when trying to connect with kids Equipped with a set of Apple iPods Dr Duchcherer and her team are working at an Edmonton area shelter for victims of domestic violence To date she has worked with more than 12 children at the residence guiding them through different projects using various software applications The functionality of the iPod with a variety of educational applications makes it easy for children to learn and adapt said Dr Duchcherer The children can feel comfortable and positive after using the device because they
