Canadian Newswire
Caroline Villeneuve et Jordan Lemay font partie des 2 à 3 pour cent de jeunes Québécois atteints de scoliose idiopathique, une déformation en trois dimensions de la colonne vertébrale qui affecte surtout des jeunes filles, sans que l'on comprenne encore tout à fait pourquoi. Grâce au renouvellement de la Chaire de recherche industrielle CRSNG-Medtronic en biomécanique de la colonne vertébrale dont est titulaire Pr Carl-Éric Aubin de Polytechnique Montréal et du CHUSainte-Justine, les futurs enfants et les adultes atteints de problèmes de la colonne vertébrale pourront, comme Caroline et Jordan, profiter de la «chirurgie du futur» que les chercheurs sont à mettre au point.

CBC News
Nearly a quarter of nurses wouldn't recommend the hospital where they work to their family or friends, a survey by CBC News has found. The startling figure comes from an online poll that CBC's flagship investigative show, the fifth estate, distributed to registered nurses across the country as part of Rate My Hospital, a sweeping series about health care. Twenty-four per cent of respondents to the survey distributed through nursing associations and unions said they definitely would not or probably would not recommend their hospital to loved ones.
