Achievements of the Research Committee of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (1971–1985)

  • Andrew Sims (a1)
Extract

In the Charter of the College, the Research Committee is established as a Standing Committee of Council; thus research has always been seen to be an essential part of the work of the College. The four main roles of the Research Committee are: (a) to help, advise and encourage the membership of the College in carrying out psychiatric research; (b) to advise the Council on the place of all aspects of research in the College; (c) to maintain a dialogue between the College and major potential grant-giving organizations for research, for example, the Medical Research Committee (MRC), the Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) (both of which send observers to the Research Committee) and larger relevant voluntary organizations; and (d) in some circumstances to be the agent for carrying out research.
