UCT MMed student, Dr Ryan Moore, won best poster at the 2020 Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital (RCWMCH) annual research day for his work on international normalised ratio (INR) monitoring in children. 

His study, which was supervised by CHDRU Director, Prof Liesl Zühlke, compared the accuracy of portable point-of-care INR monitors to standard of care laboratory monitoring in a sample of paeditric patients at RCWMCH and found a favorable comparison between the two methods.
