High Quality Research

Knowledge-led continuous improvement, innovation, and research—regulatory framework and coordination

High-quality researchQatar has embarked on an ambitious research programme. However, thus far there has been limited national coordination. Currently healthcare research activities in Qatar are almost exclusively focused on biomedical topics, with little attention on public health and policy projects. To meet the QNV goals on quality and effectiveness of research, there has to be national alignment on all research activities and appropriate utilisation of resources.

To achieve a world class health system, research must focus on—and appropriate funding must be given to—all areas of healthcare, including public health, public policy, biomedicine, and clinical effectiveness.

The following are the identified projects for the NHS 2011–2016 required to achieve this goal:

Research governance

  • The MoPH should act as the national governance structure for research, through the establishment of the appropriate entity (committee or council) to do so, eg. Qatar Medical Research Council (QMRC), to provide a national regulatory framework, national strategic direction on research priorities, and coordination of publicly funded research.
