Consultation on the RANZCR Research Strategy 2017-2020
The current RANZCR Strategy to 2017 articulates 11 College-wide Strategic Pillars. Pillar 7, Research, states that:
Clinical radiology and radiation oncology are recognised as professions characterised by a research ethic, and Australia, and New Zealand become more competitive internationally.
In line with the research Pillar, the College embarked on a process of developing a College wide research strategic plan that will outline research focus areas to guide the faculties of Clinical Radiology and Radiation Oncology to better target resources to ensure embedding a culture of research among the professions. In turn, this will reduce reliance on research outcomes generated elsewhere to guide local practice.
In the September 2016 edition of Inside News we reported that a research strategy forum had been held at the College office in Sydney. The membership and research committees from both faculties were well represented. Since then a draft research strategy document has been developed and has passed through two rounds of comments from the research forum participants.
The strategy document is at a stage where it can benefit from input of the wider membership.
We are keen to get your feedback on the strategy. Please send your comments by 27 March 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions please direct them to Professor Patricia Desmond- Chair Clinical Radiology Research Committee and Dr Keen-Hun Tai, Chair Radiation Oncology Research Committee.
