The CHEO Research Institute’s Spotlight on Research video series showcases some of their leading researchers in these priority areas.  Over the coming months we will be sharing some of these videos through the CAPHC Conversations Blog.

Dr. Margaret Lawson, Pediatric Endocrinologist and Senior Scientist at CHEO, discusses her experience with shared decision-making.
