Dr. Moneeza Walji, editorial fellow, interviews Dr. Amit Garg, nephrologist at London Health Sciences Centre and Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Western University. Dr. Garg and colleagues found that nitrofurantoin was less effective than other antibiotics for treatment of UTI in a large cohort study of older women, regardless of the women’s estimated kidney function.

In a second podcast, Dr. Diane Kelsall, deputy editor, interviews Dr. Rob Whitley, Principal Investigator with the Douglas Institute in Montreal and Assistant Professor of psychiatry at McGill. In a commentary published in CMAJ (subscription required), Whitley and colleagues discuss the steps needed to foster mental health “recovery”, which refers to the process whereby people with severe mental illness progress to live an autonomous, contributing and satisfying life in the community, even with persisting symptoms.
