Introduction to Clinical Research Workshop 21st February, 2015
After the successful completion of an introductory workshop in November last year, Shifa Clinical Research Center organized another daylong workshop on 21st February, 2015. Aimed at all health professionals from various fields of medicine, the workshop focused mainly on introducing core concepts of clinical research.
The workshop was divided into five basic themes; Ethics & ICH-GCP guidelines, Proposal& manuscript writing, Randomized controlled trials, Cohort studies and Case-control studies. Each segment highlighted the main concepts with examples followed by a Q&A session.
The response from the attendees indicates the growing interest of medical professionals towards research in Pakistan. The SCRC team hopes to use each experience as a learning opportunity and organize more workshops in the future.
