Don't miss SGLT Tools - PowerPoint slide library for SGLT2 inhibitors

The Education in MINEral Metabolism (EMINEM) project was developed by a number of Canadian Nephrologists with significant interest and some expertise in the field.

docs1The original group of interested Canadian nephrologists were:

  • Ross Morton, Kingston General Hospital, Kingston, Ontario (PI)
  • Paul Barré, Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, Quebec
  • Gavril Hercz, Humber River Regional Hospital, Toronto, Ontario
  • David Hirsch, Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Center, Halifax, Nova Scotia
  • Anthony Hodsman, London Health Science Centre, London, Ontario
  • Martine Leblanc, Hôpital Maissonneuve-Rosemont, Montreal, Quebec
  • Adeera Levin, St Paul’s Hospital, Vancouver, British Columbia
  • Charmaine Lok, University Health Network, Toronto, Ontario
  • Sean Murphy, Health Sciences Center, St John’s Newfoundland
  • Martina Reslerova, St Boniface General Hospital, Winnipeg, Manitoba


This group, CLaSP (The Canadian Lanthanum Scientific Panel) was interested to see how well Canadian dialysis centres were reaching the K/DOQI and CSN mineral metabolism targets. The results of this research which were recently published  (Hemodialysis International 2010;14:200-210) was supported by an unrestricted grant from Shire Canada.

The initial working group who developed the EMINEM project, also current members of CLaSP and supported by an unrestricted grant from Shire Canada, are:

  • Ross Morton, Kingston General Hospital, Kingston, Ontario (Chair)
  • Paul Barré, Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, Quebec
  • Anthony Hodsman, London Health Science Centre, London, Ontario
  • Steven Soroka, Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Center, Halifax, Nova Scotia
  • Jordan Weinstein, St Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, Ontario

In order to ensure that EMINEM as an educational tool is relevant for the whole renal team, the working group has been expanded to include:

  • Marisa Battistella, Pharm D, Clinical Pharmacist in Nephrology at University Health Network, Toronto, Ontario
  • June Martin, BASc, RD, Clinical Dietitian, Grand River Hospital, Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario
