The research activities will be dealing with two major concerns i.e.
To increase the understanding of different interventions to enable better decision making by physicians by developing standards to guide them in optimising the use of resources. This is possible through outcomes research which takes into account treatment and clinical end points obtained through randomised or epidemiologic studies.
To enhance the accuracy of diagnosis and effectiveness of treatment and prevention of diseases of the liver, gallbladder and pancreas by providing physicians, surgeons and other health professionals with data derived from basic research which addresses the evaluation of diagnostic tests and the natural history of disease.
This will provide the opportunity for physicians to critically evaluate their practices and furnish scientific date for policy recommendations, as the following subsets of outcomes research acknowledges cost and human factors:
Drug efficacy and safety studies that will include cost effectiveness and quality of life issues.
Host and virus related factors that may be useful in predicting the likelihood of response to treatment. Patients with the highest probability of achieving a therapeutic response can then be preferentially selected for treatment.
Epidemiological surveys to determine the prevalence of viral hepatitis in various settings and patient populations for the purpose of archiving local data and maintaining a National Hepatitis Registry.
The opportunity to understand and appreciate the differences between available diagnostic methods and the natural history of liver diseases especially viral hepatitis will directly enhance the effectiveness of physicians in the management and control of liver diseases. Such as opportunity can be obtained through the following efforts:
