Research is the foundation upon which great institutions are built and grow, and conducting it accurately is crucial to achieving this. To tackle this, Shalamar Institute of Health Sciences (SIHS), in the fall of 2021, showed a training workshop on Research Methodology. The two-day training workshop was conducted on 29th and 30th September 2021, with over 30 participants from our different departments, including Shalamar Medical and Dental College (SMDC), Shalamar Nursing College (SNC), Shalamar School of Allied Health Sciences (SSAHS), and Shalamar Hospital.
We were joined by a team from Agha Khan University, who talked about elements of research design. The workshop covered research methods and various components of a research paper, such as the literature review, the importance of hypothesis determination, and the framing of research questions. Of course, a research technique methodology would be complete with a discussion of research ethics and design elements.
Our participants and the AKU moderators continued on an enthusiastic path, engaging in various dialogues, group activities, and sessions to harness their research skills, focusing specifically on data collection, analysis, and interpretation.
