Deux conférences organisées par le GRISE en septembre 2022, en collaboration avec le Centre de recherche mère-enfant et les thèmes fédérateurs de la recherche à l’UdeS

Juillet 2022

Le Groupe de recherche et d’intervention sur les adaptations sociales de l’enfance (GRISE) de l’Université de Sherbrooke (UdeS) accueille la professeure Rachel Barr et le professeur Mark Asbridge pour des conférences scientifiques offertes à la communauté universitaire et aux personnes intéressées par les thèmes discutés. Ces conférences sont organisées par le GRISE, en collaboration avec le Centre de recherche mère-enfant de l’UdeS et trois des six thèmes fédérateurs de la recherche à l’UdeS : Santé : promotion, prévention et approches de précision, Vivre ensemble : cultures, pluralité, gouvernance et équité et Ère numérique : formations et organisations intelligentes.

Ces conférences se dérouleront les 19 et 20 septembre 2022 sur l’heure du dîner dans l’amphithéâtre A2-1016 du campus principal de l’Université de Sherbrooke (2500, boul. de l’Université, Sherbrooke, Québec) et sur la plateforme Teams. Elles seront en anglais, suivies d’une période de questions où les personnes participantes pourront s’adresser aux personnes conférencières, en français ou en anglais.

L’inscription est requise – au plus tard le 12 septembre 2022 – pour assister en présentiel à la conférence du mardi 20 septembre. Veuillez prendre connaissance des détails ci-après.

Pour toute demande d’information additionnelle, veuillez nous écrire à GRISE@USherbrooke.ca

Au plaisir de s’y retrouver!

Résumé : Learning from media during early childhood is constrained by lack of perceptual and social cues and by the slow development of memory flexibility. There is a transfer deficit in learning from multiple forms of media. However when these constraints are taken into consideration young children can and do learn from media. During the colloquium Barr will discuss how learning and engagement can be maximized. She will also discuss the CAFE consortium, an international group of researchers examining family media ecology.

Résumé : Injury is an important public health concern as it is the leading cause of death among Canadian adolescents, produces substantial health, social and economic costs, and disparately affects certain population subgroups such as youth and young adults. Much of the previous research in this area relies on hospitalization records, which only capture the most severe injuries and usually do not include detailed information on patient characteristics or broader structural determinants. This report addresses an important gap in the research by providing a more fulsome picture of adolescent injury with a focus on the “hidden figure” of adolescent injury in Canada – injuries not captured by hospitalization records – as well as key social, mental health, and substance use related determinants. This study draws on data from six national or provincial self-reported surveys to assess the injury burden faced by Canadians ages 11 to 19.  We provide estimates of the prevalence of total, intentional, and unintentional injuries among children and youth in Canada and in each   province. Injury rates are also calculated across ten key social, mental health, and substance use categories to examine differences between population groups. There was substantial heterogeneity in prevalence estimates across the six datasets because of the measures employed in each dataset. For this reason, injury rates in different locations were compared using one dataset with national (excluding the territories) and provincial-level data. Total injury rates based on this dataset ranged from 28% in Nova Scotia to 41% in Saskatchewan, with a national average of 31% . A large majority of these injuries were unintentional (such as falls or injuries resulting from sports or inclement weather), ranging from 80% of total injuries in Québec to 89% of in Saskatchewan and a national average of 84%. There are no clear regional differences in injury rates. Other datasets provided essential contextual information, especially where small sample sizes in the principal dataset either caused imprecise estimates or prevented results from being published entirely. This study finds no consistent association between social disadvantage and higher injury rates. Instead, age, sex, socioeconomic status, and employment status exhibit inconsistent and frequently non-significant associations with injury rates. Conversely, mental health and substance use were more consistently associated with increased injury rates. Adolescents with either a mood or anxiety disorder have higher injury rates in most provinces. Using tobacco, alcohol, cannabis, and/or partaking in binge drinking is associated with higher injury rates in most jurisdictions and in each of the six datasets. The cross-sectional data used in study prevents us from identifying mental health and substance use as causes of adolescent injury in Canada. However, a classic lens through which to understand the determinants of injury suggests that these correlates likely have a causal relationship with injury. This study complements previous research which has largely relied on administrative data focusing on more serious injures, and includes less serious, unreported or unrecorded injuries that are absent from administrative data as they are not reported to the health care system. By shedding light on the ‘hidden figure’ of injury, this study offers a fuller picture of the injury burden among Canadian adolescents. Additionally, considering injury rates in the context of broader social determinants allows for the implementation of interventions directed at specific subpopulations or regions with an elevated risk.
