World Homoeopathy Day : What it means for India
World Homoeopathy Day (WHD) is celebrated to commemorate the birthday of Dr.Hahnemann, the Founder of Homoeopathy. It gives us an opportunity to review the pathtrodden so far, take stock of the challenges facing us, and formulate future strategies fordevelopment of Homoeopathy. There is a need to focus on the quality of education,enhancing the sucess rate of an average practitioner. There is also a need to ensure the production and availability of high quality homoepathic drugs in the market. This is not possible unless the homoeopathic community innovates, modernizes, reinvents, forges ahead jointly, with a variety of initiatives and research projects. Hence the theme, ‘Linking research with education and clinical practice, Advancing scientific collaborations’.
Importance of linking research : The ‘Why’s and the ‘How’s
Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH) is an apex body under Ministry of AYUSH for undertaking research in Homoeopathy. The research work of CCRH is multidimensional and the Council considers its duty to not only conduct quality research,
but also to link it with educatio, clinical practice and standardization of drug manufacture for holistic development of the Homoeopathy sector. Facilitiating national and international collaborations is also a part of this vision.
Link with education
As vital as this linking is, it is easier said than done. It would mean better research possibilities in acedmic institutes of Homoeopathy. Which, in turn, means strengthening our medical colleges laboratories, developing the skillfullness of our faculty, increased
dialogue between education and research institutes and so on and so forth.
Link with clinical practice
Similarly linking clinical practice with research would mean sensitization of clinicians
to research requirements. This would mean systematic, methodological recording of cases, understanding of cases from a research point of view, and having a broad and finer understanding of clinical research. It would also require the Council to translate its research work into simple, clinical, language for use by practitioners.
The Council’s efforts so far in linking
Since 2014-15, CCRH has initiated a short-term studentship program whereby 76 undergraduates have been given scholarships and mentored to undertake short research projects. With research-oriented mentorship, these students, who are future practitioners,can develop much-required critical thinking and make significant contributions to research.
With about three hundred thousand registered practitioners contributing in the field of education and healthcare within public and private sectors, millions of patients are being treated with Homoeopathy every day. But these cases are largely unrecorded in a scientific manner. This lack means data is unavailable for publication in research journals,
or other scientific platforms. This gap between practice and research requires capacity building of institutions and practitioners, both within the private and government sectors.
Pursuing efforts to bridge this gap, CCRH has developed standard treatment guidelines, disease monographs and drug monographs including drug pathogenesis for indigenous drugs. Various tools and techniques for finer case recording is being encouraged and promoted by CCRH such as Homcase guidelines, the Homoeopathic pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) guidelines of Data Collection, CONSORT a SPIRIT. These tools and mechanisms permit presentations and, publications even of single cases.
Advancing Scientific Collaborations
CCRH believes not only in developing vertically, by making India stand tall in the Homoeopathy scenario, but also horizontally, by promoting Homoeopathy worldwide. Which is why the Council is always looking out to join hands with international institutes
that have the common goal of research and development of Homoeopathy.
This year, CCRH is glad to be partnering with two eminent education bodies, one national and one international Central Council of Homoeopathy is the statutory body established under the Act of Parliament for regulation of homoeopathy education and practice in India, and the Faculty of Homoeopathy is the eminent organization of homoeopathic doctors.
Through our collaboration with Central Council of Homoeopathy (CCH) we look forward to enable quality research in PG students,which is mandatory as a part of theircurriculum. CCH has ensured the best possible academic curriculum, which has been changed to fit the times and needs of the profession.
Our international collaboration with the Faculty of Homeopathy (FoH) is another very privileged one. Founded in 1844 and incorporated by Act of Parliament in 1950 the Faculty of Homoeopathy is the preeminent globale association for healthcare professionals who are trained to use homoeopathy alongside conventional medicine. The Faculty is embracing its international mission this year as it celebrates its 175the Anniversary. by using pleased to accept membership applications from those who have completed a course of homoeopathic study in various parts of the world (www.Faculty/Homoeopathy org.
[email protected]) This makes the faculty a supportive home for colleagues having Bachelors or Diploma in Homoeopathy from India. plus those practicing in the field of veterniary medicine.
