Research club initiative at Ocean road cancer institute
Research is an investigative process and it is important to be nurtured and promoted among the ORCI staff for the discoveries of scientific facts and knowledge revolving on cancer. The world has evolved into a research driven platform and it is expected to nourish the zeal for ORCI staff to participate in research. This is regardless of one’s current educational and/or professional background.
At ORCI we have differing levels of exposures in the scientific process and research literacy in general. There is an ever-rising appetite by lower level staff to conduct and participate in research at ORCI which can only be described as untapped potential. For these reasons, initiation of this club is envisioned as a mentorship program that will be employee-driven to provide meaningful supplementation to regular duties involving healthcare provision at Ocean road cancer institute.
Staff are introduced into the scientific method and together the group will foster curiosity in the investigative process for data generation, analysis and dissemination. The research club includes an intimate lesson plan that stresses on training research assistants and the importance of responsible scientific conduct from all levels of the research hierarchy. The group favorably promote professionalism, a catalyst to personal professional growth and an asset to future investigators.
To demystify research methods by creating a research “community of practice and professionalism” among healthcare workers at Ocean road cancer institute.
To initiate, enhance, develop, and advance the research capacity of staff at ORCI through exposure to a variety of professional development events and attachment with a mentorship program spearheaded by, for and to young scientists within the organization.
