Medical Research and Education
Dr. Harpur has conducted many research studies and provided medical personnel education in hyperbaric medicine. We continue to look at upgrading our ability to provide Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to patients who meet the criteria for this mode of therapy. This is to be combined with a program of education for the medical community regarding the indications and benefits HBOT offers patients and the healthcare system.
We are also looking to provide access to a suitable training environment for physicians working toward the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada Diploma in Hyperbaric and Diving Medicine in conjunction with one of the medical schools with which our staff hold appointments. Suitable training can be extended to other medical branches, including but not limited to: nurse practitioners, respiratory technicians and nurses.
We allow access to the Hyperbaric Facility for researchers from accredited institutes of higher education for diving, medical and basic science research projects.
