Bi-Monthly Research Rounds

Home / Research and Performance Support / Bi-Monthly Research Rounds

Bimonthly Research Rounds are a self-approved group learning activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. The concept of hosting Bi Monthly Research Rounds (BRR) emerged from a group of local physicians with a desire to foster independent and collaborative research in the RQHR and with partnering organizations. A core belief is that working together and keeping each other informed about current research projects and interests is critical to strengthening the profile of our local research agenda. Participation in the BRR fulfills the requirements for CME self-accreditation by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Patrick Odnokon

Interim CEO and Director of Impact and Evaluation

Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation


Patrick joined the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF) in October 2007.  Given today's economic climate, increasing demands for public dollars, obligations for accountability and transparency, and the need to demonstrate the benefits of investments in health research, there is a greater need for funders to maintain the highest standard of financial stewardship.  As a publicly funded organization, the SHRF is accountable to taxpayers' dollars by ensuring they are investing in high quality research, and evaluating and demonstrating the impacts of the research we fund. As Director of Impact and Evaluation, Patrick has been responsible for monitoring, evaluating and reporting on the impact of health research in Saskatchewan. In what is often described as an elusive construct, Patrick has been instrumental in the publication of a number SHRF- commission reports including:

  • Aging-Related Research in Saskatchewan:: Showcasing the Impact of Health Research and Partnerships (2017)
  • Weechihitotan (Let's Help and Support Each Other): The Value of Aboriginal Health Research in Saskatchewan (March 2015)
  • Ten Years of Health Research Innovation and Excellence (2003-2013)
  • Measuring the Value of Saskatchewan's Health Research (2013)
