Research and Audit Workshop


December 15, 2017 10:58 pm December 15, 2017 10:58 pm Europe/London Research and Audit Workshop

PSRH Research and Audit Workshop, 13th-15th July 2017 From the 13th to 15th of July on a beautiful tropical Vanuatu day, 41 participants from 8 countries gathered for the Research and Audit Workshop at the Ministry of Health in Port Vila. We settled around the great round table to engage our minds hard at work to learn about research and audit processes and discuss individual projects and ideas. The need for research in the Pacific Islands is real1,2 and will be pivotal at identifying needs, improving local health systems and gathering momentum to influence prioritisation, funding and higher systemic determinants of health. The desire for involvement in research was incredibly encouraging, as reflected in a record number of participants at this workshop – our numbers swelled to double the original plan for 20 participants. Despite a full room with the heat pulsing and just enough air conditioning – we were not phased and were held captive by the task at hand. Topics covered ranged from developing a research question, to research design and collecting and analysing data, to writing for publication. A big thank you to our facilitators; Aiono Dr Alec Ekeroma, Professor Caroline Homer, Dr Kara Okesene-Gafa, Courtney Choy and Alysa Pomer. We were so fortunate to receive personal insights from these wonderful researchers who are all actively involved and passionate about research in the Pacific. The Pacific Journal of Reproductive Health is an open access peer-reviewed scientific journal for reproductive health researchers and health-workers in the Pacific Islands and Pacific-rim countries. We invite all articles that address any aspect of reproductive health and it is our aim to share knowledge for the benefit of patient care and improved health services in the Pacific. Please take the time to enjoy the latest issue of the Journal available from http://journals.sfu.ca/pjrh/index.php/pjrh/issue/view/5 and if you are feeling inspired – take part in creating your own research, or join us at the next PSRH Research and Audit Workshop.   1Ekeroma A, Kenealy T, Shulruf B, McCowan L, Hill A.
