Breakthrough in cognitive testing at Copeman Healthcare

Breakthrough in cognitive testing at Copeman Healthcare

Last year, Dr. Shawnda Lanting completed her two year fellowship with Copeman Healthcare Centre. As part of her fellowship, she researched streamlined testing for mental illness and cognitive impairment. She determined that testing could be reduced from 2 days to 30 minutes or less with the results being equal to the longer tests; a significant breakthrough that would ultimately help reduce wait times and ensure patients are diagnosed and treated as soon as possible.

Dr. Lanting was interviewed about her findings by Mitacs, a national, not-for-profit organization.
