    JOURNAL CLUB - Anwar

    JOURNAL CLUB - Anwar

    This episode presents a recorded conversation between students in my research lab at the University of British Columbia, discussing the article, “Associations between housing factors and respiratory symptoms in two Saskatchewan First Nations communities”, published this year in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health with Naiela Anwar as the first author.
    The link to the article is here.
    A previous episode of the podcast talked about setting up your own journal club. The link to that episode is here.
    Students who took part in this conversation include:
    Ivan Kamurasi, MSc. student in Experimental Medicine,
    Polina Petlitsyna, BSc. student and Summer Research Assistant,
    Débora Petry-Moecke, PhD student in Rehabilitation Sciences, &
    Justin Turner, PhD student in Rehabilitation Sciences
    The full list of my students and other lab members can be found here.
    A NOTE ON METHODS: The students talk about self-reported data, and the limitations of that approach. It’s important to acknowledge that self-reported data may be inaccurate for many reasons. Although it is possible that people deliberately report inaccurate information, it is also very typical to simply forget, or under- or over-estimate symptoms and exposures due to not remembering the exact details, not knowing the requested information, or having the question not worded in a way that is understood by participants.
