Research seems simple to do. We read about it daily… someone has found something somewhere, etc etc etc. Learning to do a proper research in a scientific manner is a completely different ball game.
One of the best learning experiences I had was at the ACORD workshop – Australia and Asia Pacific Clinical Oncology Research Development Workshop. This is held every two years in Queensland, Australia for seven days.
Each of the applicants submit a concept which is evaluated by a panel and 70 participants are selected. The workshop teaches us to take the concept and develop it into a proper protocol, complete with statistics and everything needed to launch a study.
Absolutely phenomenal. Keep looking out for the future dates.
Cancer, Medicine and Life: A cancer and medicine blog to help on the journey of life. Medicine and Medical Oncology are rapidly changing fields and is hard for most people to keep up. A diagnosis of any illness, in particular cancer is devastating news for anyone, and the hope is that we can share knowledge and support each other.
