A two-day Basic Ethics Training was held last May 11-12, 2016 at the Cordillera Inn Hotel and Restaurant, #29 Mena Crisologo St., Vigan City, Ilocos Sur conducted by the Region 1 Health Research and Development Consortium (R1HRDC) in cooperation with the Philippine Council on Health Research and Development (PCHRD).

This Training aims to enhance the awareness on the importance of ethics in research and improve capacity for participation in the research ethics review system. Specifically, it was design for participants to be able to (1) trace the development of research ethics, (2) recognize the underlying ethical principles in different international guidelines , (3) refer  to national laws and guidelines when necessary, (4) commit to their roles and responsibilities in good research practice, (5) describe a valid informed consent process and form, (6) determine the risk and benefits in the study and demonstrate how to balance them and (7) recognize different vulnerabilities of study groups and how to address them.

Dr. Marita V.T. Reyes and Dr. Rhodora C. Estacio who are both members of the Philippine Health Research Ethics Board Committee on Standardization and Accreditation of UP Manila were the main resource speakers of the said training which was facilitated by the R1HRDC-Ethics Review Committee (ERC) together with Ms. Marie Jeanne Berroya and Mr. Andronico Lear De Guzman from the PCHRD. The training consisted of a pre-test, lectures, small group work, presentation and critiques, self discernment and role play, post test evaluation and a daily and final workshop evaluation.

Participants of the training are mostly researchers and members of the Research Ethics Review Committee (RERC) from Virgen Milagrosa University Foundation Inc., (VMUF), Lyceum Nortwestern University (LNU), Region 1 Medical Center (R1MC), Pangasinan State University (PSU), Ilocos Training and Regional Medical Center (ITRMC), Commission on Higher Education (CHED-R1), Department of Science and Technology (DOST-R1), National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA-1), Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University (DMMMSU), University of Northern Philippines (UNP), Mariano Marcos State University (MMSU), Mariano Marcos Memorial Hospital and Medical Center (MMMH&MC), Northern Christian College (NCC) and Northwestern University (NWU).

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.
