Research:

Dr. Bizgu’s particular interest lies in transition from intra-uterine to extra-uterine life (past research reflected in PhD thesis); breastfeeding; long term outcomes in premature infants and nosocomial infection. Being a coordinator of PICCs insertion team at the JGH and a member of EPIQ project, her interest involves the prevention of nosocomial infection in NICU. Also, as a part of the CNN database, she is involved now in the project regarding the variations in the number and type of laboratory and radiological investigations performed in the first 2 weeks of life after birth in preterm infants < 29 weeks gestation in participating Canadian NICUs in order to explore the reasons/rationale for the tests being performed, as it has an impact on short-term outcomes such as the need for blood transfusion and nosocomial infections; resource utilization and economic impact.
