George Ioannidis, PhD
CaMos (Canadian Multi-Centre Osteoporosis Study) group participant
CAMRIS specialist in statistics and clinical health research.
George recently completed his PhD at McMaster University in the department of Health Research Methodology. His PhD research quantified the impact of osteoporotic fractures on excess mortality in men and women across Canada. In addition, George evaluated how a new multifaceted knowledge translation methodology (the Quality Circle Project), helped improve family physicians adherence with the 2002 Osteoporosis Canada clinical practice guidelines. The goal of the study was to increase family physicians awareness of osteoporosis risk factors, and to improve the appropriate use of bone mineral density testing and osteoporosis medications.
George has specialized in statistics and designing studies in clinical health research. Over his 12 year career, George has collaborated with many Canadian researchers, has been involved in a number of osteoporosis studies, and has worked with the Canadian Multi-Centre Osteoporosis Study (CaMos) group. George has presented his research findings at several National and International Conferences and has over 170 publications including books, journal articles and abstracts.
