INTRODUCTION We described trends for sexually transmitted infections (STI) among gay/bisexual men in British Columbia, Canada, using a sentinel site surveillance approach. METHODS Using data from an electronic charting system, we included gay/bisexual men who visited high-volume STI clinics from 2000 to 2013. Diagnosis rates and incidence density were(More)
BACKGROUND Population-level monitoring of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infected people across the cascade of care identifies gaps in access and engagement in care and treatment. We characterized a population-level cascade of care for HCV in British Columbia (BC), Canada and identified factors associated with leakage at each stage. METHODS The BC Hepatitis(More)
To study the role of surgery for symptom palliation in patients with advanced head and neck malignancy. Between 2000 and 2011, patients with locoregionally advanced cancer in the head and neck region, who chose surgical palliation for symptom control, were studied retrospectively. During the study period, 52 patients were included. The index tumour included(More)
The design and implementation of the data base structures of the Electro-Optical and Data Systems Group's (EDSG) Computer-Aided Design(CAD) system at Hughes Aircraft is introduced and discussed. The design is flexible, yet robust enough to support multiple CAD technologies and to afford easy integration of new capabilities. The current system structure and(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to analyze the surgical management of recurrent retropharyngeal lymph node metastasis after radiotherapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS We conducted a prospective analysis of preoperative imaging, surgical approach, and oncological results. RESULTS Between 1990 and 2011, 82 patients were included.(More)
Men who have sex with men (MSM) are disproportionately affected by HIV globally, regionally in Canada, and locally in Vancouver. Lack of reliable population size estimates of MSM impedes effective implementation of health care services and limits our understanding of the HIV epidemic. We estimated the population size of MSM residing in Metro Vancouver(More)
The relational data model has been gaining steady acceptance by the design automation community. Although it has existed for many years and is currently all the rage in the data base research community, its acceptance by the DA community has been slow. The goal of this session will be to explore the role and applicability of the relational data model for(More)
BACKGROUND Co-occurrence of social conditions and infections may affect HIV/HCV disease risk and progression. We examined the changes in relationship of these social conditions and infections on HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections over time in British Columbia during 1990-2013. METHODS The BC Hepatitis Testers Cohort (BC-HTC) includes ~1.5 million(More)
Software tools to improve the productivity of the CAD programmer have had a significant impact on the cost effectiveness of providing computer-aided design tools at the Hughes Aircraft Company. The CAD system in use at our Electro-Optical and Data Systems Group is a large, integrated, and mature system. It was designed to improve the productivity of not(More)
