There are many exciting research initiatives going on at MGH. Below two MGH researchers describe recent projects investigating ways to improve patient care. Dr Rajiv Singal is looking at how the introduction of robotic assistance in prostate surgery at MGH affects surgeon performance and patient care. Laura Istanboulian is working with patients with COPD, making sure they have been properly instructed on how to use their inhalers, and assessing their confidence in using them. Both projects won awards for their research, and both presented at the hospital's Research, Education Scholarship, Innovation Celebration (EPIC) Fair.
