Responding to the call to generate research proposals, researchers from the different member institutions of the Consortium participated in the Phase I Writeshop focusing on Capsule Research Proposal Development held on the 18th and 19th of May, 2017 at El Cielito Inn, North Drive, Baguio City. This activity is a joint effort of the Capability Building Committee (CBC), Ethics Review Committee (ERC), and its lead working group, the Research Management Committee (RMC) of the Cordillera Regional Health Research and Development Consortium (CRHRDC).

The writeshop focused mainly on establishing an interdisciplinary collaboration of the mentors and the researchers in the conduct of capsule and detailed research proposals. Engr. Nathaniel Lubrica (Chair, Research Management Committee) introduced the Consortium and gave the overview of the activities of the said event. He was also responsible for the discussion of the guidelines in funding researches. The pool of mentors present during the writeshop are as follows:

Dr. Erlinda Palaganas (Chair, Capability Building Committee, CRHRDC; UP Baguio)
Dr. Eleanor Cuarte (Chair, Ethics Review Committee, CRHRDC; BGHMC)
Engr. Nathaniel Lubrica (Chair, Research Management Committee, CRHRDC; UC)
Ms. Marian Sanchez (Member, CRHRDC – RMC; Luke Foundation Inc.)
Prof. Celia Austria (Member, CRHRDC – ERC; UP Baguio)
Prof. Ruth Batani (Member, CRHRDC – RMC; BSU)
Prof. Marilou Saong (Member, CRHRDC – CBC; UB)
Dr. Lloyd Orduna (Member, CRHRDC – ERC)
Dr. Ellaine Velasquez (Member, CRHRDC – RMC; BGHMC)
Ms. Lilia Say-awen (Member, CRHRDC – ERC; DOH-CAR)

Presentations of the initial and revised capsule research proposals were conducted by the researchers to which the mentors offered their substantial suggestions and recommendations. Some of the participants imparted their inputs to studies they are familiar with as well. Consultations between the mentors and researchers were done during breaks. Ms. Marian Sanchez, Prof. Ruth Batani, and Ms. Lilia Say-awen facilitated the discussions of the plenary.

The responses received by the participants challenged them to further develop their current capsule research proposals. The mentors likewise encouraged the participants to improve their studies in preparation for the Phase II Writeshop: Detailed Research Proposal Development in June.
