Research Consultation Group (RCG)
The Research Consultation Group (RCG) was formed to optimize scholarly activity by providing guidance and expertise for both beginner and advanced researchers engaged in all phases of the research process in an informal setting with access to multiple resources. This consultative group is a resource to assist collaboration for research at and with Prisma Health – Upstate. Consultation opportunities:
- Clinical questions development including hypothesis development/refinement
- Need for partnership for appropriate research team members
- Study methodology: assistance with appropriate design and outcomes measures
- Study feasibility: identifying potential stakeholders, samples, recruitment efforts, timing, etc.
- Identification and facilitated engagement with auxiliary services essential to study execution (e.g. data/IT, IRB coordinator, librarian, etc)
- Timeline development
- Identification of immediate next steps
- Disseminating research findings: identification of target conferences and/or journals
Patient Engagement Studio
The Patient Engagement Studio is a resource for the Prisma Health–Upstate Health Sciences Center serving all four academic partners: Clemson University, Furman University, Prisma Health, and the University of South Carolina. The Studio provides a structured opportunity for patients, community stakeholders, physicians, and academic researchers to collaborate in planning, conducting and disseminating results of research projects and health system innovations.
