In 2002, two multi-center cooperative and collaborative action research studies were completed, namely:
Thus, there is now a total of 5 MCCCARS.
There is a now a total of about 70 surgeons who are subscribed to the e-group of MCCCARS.
The main observation this year is that the cooperative and collaborative multi-centers came from the Metro Manila. No centers in the Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao participated this year in MCCCARS, unlike in 2002.
Hopefully, in 2004, more centers will participate.
The Department of Surgery of Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center (OMMC), which is the prime mover of MCCCARS, has produced 21 action research papers in 2003. These papers will be disseminated to the other members of the MCCCARS to encourage them to conduct similar studies so as to produce multi-center cooperative and collaborative action research studies.
