Introduced in 2005, Focus on Research is a system of preparatory conference calls, virtual classroom (webinars), learning materials and mentoring for research advocates to improve skills and understanding of biomedical research.
The program includes exciting discussions about concepts in oncology research and how research results progress to better patient care. The Focus on Research Scholar program is designed to prepare advocates to better understand the research process and have a greater understanding of common concepts in oncology (cancer pathways, genomics, biomarkers, statistics, patient protections). Scholars will develop and implement an action plan to disseminate research results and knowledge gained in the class to a patient community. Through a system of preparatory conference calls, virtual classroom (webinars), and learning materials the Scholars will gain critical appraisal skills to better understand research presentations and publications.
