As an Academic Medical Centre, KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital
believes that world-class clinical training and research are imperative in
raising the standard of care. Hence, the Hospital has adopted a culture of
innovation as it achieves world-class clinical leadership. At KK Research
Centre, we aim to be a one-stop centre dedicated to assist and support our
researchers in their pursuit of excellence in research and discovery.
To establish and maintain a vibrant research culture in KK Women's and Children's Hospital, hence, contributing to the generation of innovations that can be translated into value-added services for our patients.
A hospital where new knowledge that is generated by research is systematically translated into solving clinical problems; and the outcomes of research form the basis of sound clinical practices and policies.
Our teams at KK Research Centre work synergistically under a
one-stop service centre concept to ensure optimal coordination, maximum
cost-effectiveness and, more importantly, an efficient, seamless experience for
our KKH researchers. We provide a wide spectrum of comprehensive pre- and
post-award research support services through the Research Strategic Support
Unit and the Research Execution Support Unit, respectively. The Finance
Academic Medicine (Fin-AM) works closely with KKRC and forms part of this
one-stop service centre.
The Research Strategic Support (RSS) unit
provides targeted support services for identified research talents and outreach
to young clinicians to help grow the research interests in KKH. Other strategic
pre-study support services provided by RSS include ethical approval
submissions, grant management, regulatory compliance, contract negotiations and
study budget development (with Fin-AM colleagues).
Embedded within KKRC
and working in close partnership with RSS and Fin-AM is the Research
Execution Support (RES) unit which employs a pool of highly competent Clinical Research
Coordinators (CRCs). These CRCs are all GCP certified and capable of supporting
complex interventional clinical trials. The RES also support the hospital
research quality effort through conducting regular audits and training sessions
KKRC also maintained
additional bench space which serves to facilitate strategic research work in
KKH. The Medical Library with research referencing and literature is also under
the management of KKRC.
