The Strategic Planning Workshop of  Region 1 Health Research and Development Consortium (R1HRDC) was held last April 19, 2016 at the Surfvill Resort, Sitio Malingay Brgy. Balaoi, Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte with Dr. Maria Linda G. Buhat, Assistant Director of the Nursing Services at the Philippine Heart Center (PHC), East Avenue, Quezon City as the facilitator.

Several participants of the planning workshop were from VMUF, R1MC, ITRMC, DMMMSU, DOST, UNP, NWU, MMMH&MC and PCHRD.

The planning started with the presentation of the new Philippine National Health Research System (PNHRS) Strategy Map and Performance Scorecard including the new Vision, Mission and Core Values presented by Ms. Merlita Opena, Chief SRS, RICUD of the Philippine Council on Health Research and Developement (PCHRD), as these were the important areas needed in strategic planning. Dr. Buhat then, discussed her lectures on Strategic Planning which cover the Balance Scorecard, SWOT Analysis, PESTLE Analysis and Mackinsey7 topics. According to the facilitator, Strategic Planning is intended to accomplish three important tasks: (1) to clarify the outcomes that an organization wishes to achieve (2)to select the broad strategies that will enable the organization to achieve those outcomes and (3) to identify ways to measure progress.

In order to achieve the Strategic Plan goals, Dr. Buhat challenged the participants to accomplish and present their committee's Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT), followed by the Three Year Strategic Plan as their output.

The planning was ended successfully with the presentation of committee's SWOT and Three Year Plan.

The R1HRDC held a Regional Research Contest last February 24, 2016 at the Dr. Salvador T. Duque Fieldhouse, Lyceum Northwestern University, Dagupan City, Pangasinan and the winners are the following:
