AN EXPERIENCE WITH ‘RESEARCH PERFORMANCE PARAMETERS [RPP - 5]’FOR DEVELOPING ACADEMIC RESEARCH IN AN AYURVEDIC INSTITUTE
Keywords:Ayurvedic education, Ayurvedic research, Research Parameters, Manthan, Research Change Mechanism, Integrating Ayurveda, Ayurveda Institutionalization, Ayurveda Academic Research
Research in medical educational institutions is of significance to develop skilled professionals and to contribute to health care delivery. High level of institutionalization has impacted Ayurvedic education, learning and research and even its practice. Ayurveda, based on vedic paradigm of principles of equilibrium is different from experimental and validation approach of conventional medicine. The academic research in Ayurveda is under pressure to perform.
Change mechanism in an academic environment is a challenge. Formation of an ‘Ayurveda Research Cell [ARC]’ helped the change process. Identification of performance parameters as publications [P1], projects [P2], processes & procedures [P3], products [P4] and patents [P5] provided orientation to the ARC activities.
‘Manthan’ a management tool when applied to this academic institute could remarkably improve individual performance and institutional outcome.
This unique, never before exercise in the academic field of Ayurveda can be used to overcome integration issues to develop research roadmaps.
