Pediatric Research Retreat

The Department of Pediatrics at OHSU, in conjunction with OCTRI, held a joint Pediatric Research Mini-Retreat on May 22, 2008, from 2:00-7:00 p.m., in the Doernbecher Children's Hospital Auditorium.  

This strategic planning session was designed to shape the future of pediatric research at OHSU and Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research (KPCHR).  Aims of the Pediatric Research retreat were to:

  • Discuss strategic goals for pediatric research at OHSU and KPCHR, including a brief overview of current pediatric clinical and translational research, basic science research, the Pediatric Clinical Research Office (PCRO), etc.
  • Explore opportunities for new research collaborations.
  • Discuss development of the Pediatric Clinical & Translational Research Center (PCTRC).
  • Establish milestones, evaluation tools, and outcome measures to document the success of the strategic plan, the PCTRC, and OCTRI pediatric research as well as education and training of pediatric researchers.
  • Look into new mechanisms to enhance pediatric and child health research and to break down barriers to pediatric research.
