Dear Sector Professionals,
MedicReS is a scientific, post graduate, international, life-long learning medical education and publication and scientific event program for healthcare professionals aiming to achieve GOOD MEDICAL RESEARCH by research methodology, ethics and biostatistics.
“ MedicReS aims to educate researchers and provoke discussion about good scientific method, statistics, ethics, publication, and education. Faced with stifling bureaucracy, competition for funds, and employer pressure to deliver results, finding the time and space to produce the best research can seem an arduous process. Events like the MedicReS World Congress should help to emancipate researchers, refocusing them on the steps to ensure that their research is as rigourous as possible. “ The Lancet.”
According to the 2013 Global Sales & R&D results , top 10 Pharmaceutical companies’ total sales is 465,99 US$ (Billions) and R&D Spends 68,22 US$ (Billions).Meaning Pharmaceutical sector spends 14,63% of total sales for R&D. (Source: Current Partnering, 2013) The key question is ‘how’ to conduct GOOD MEDICAL RESEARCH? To answer this, one must first consider what GOOD MEDICAL RESEARCH is.
GOOD MEDICAL RESEARCH answers a relevant question. The AIM of the research is paramount. The study design should allow for the
question to be answered leaving as few doubts as possible or leading to a plan for further research. “85% of research is wasteful or inefficient” : Go see a
statistician (worth their weight in gold!) Dr Justine Davies, Executive editor, The Lancet (MedicReS International CME Conference "GOOD CLINICAL
RESEARCH" June 7-8, 2013 Istanbul Turkey).
Why MedicReS GOOD MEDICAL RESEARCH?
“It has thus become increasingly important that the teaching of GOOD MEDICAL RESEARCH methods be expanded to scientists and institutions in
low and middle-income countries that face major health challenges in the decades ahead. There is a critical shortage of technical skills in these
countries--and for that matter in first-world nations-of researchers who are imbued with a deep understanding of the fundamental ideas underlying the
successful design and analysis of medical and public health research studies.”
Nicholas P. JEWELL, PhD, MedicReS World Congress 2012.
Turning evidence to good policy…
According to MedicReS, researchers should have sufficient knowledge not only in their own disciplines but also on ethical, biostatistical
and methodological principles while conducting their research. MedicReS also aims at putting into practice GOOD MEDICAL RESEARCH philosophy and its components, namely, good planning, good analyzing, good reporting, good reviewing and good publishing, creating good evidence, turning evidence to good policy, developing a curriculum for GOOD MEDICAL RESEARCH education, defined not only as ethical and unbiased, but also powerful.
