Research Facts
Psychiatry refers to the branch of medicine dealing with mental illness, including the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of various disorders; psychiatry differs from psychology and focuses on both the physical and mental aspects of mental illness; also involves the use of medication to treat disorders.
The Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was one of the first apprenticeship-based nursing training programs in Canada; began in 1886 in response to the increased focus on patient care in hospitals and the medical field; the program was meant to produce an educated and dedicated work force of nurses while also providing an affordable labour force for the hospital through on the job student training; the Ann Baillie Building, current home of the Museum of Healthcare at Kingston, originally served as a residence for the student nurses at KGH.

Research Facts
Dr. Leo J. Latz was one of the pioneers of the "rhythm" method of birth control, now often called natural family planning. The Rhythm method asserts that women are only fertile for five or six days of their menstrual cycle, and so it is unlikely for a woman to get pregnant outside of those days, even without material methods of birth control. His book went through twenty-six editions.
The Rhythm Method is the only method of birth control which received the official approval of the Catholic Church, having been approved by Pope Pius XII in 1951. In 1955, a survey of Catholic women found that over 65% of the women surveyed said they used the Rhythm method.
In 1934, Latz, a devout Catholic, was fired from his position at Loyola University, most likely over his involvment with the cause of Rhythm.
