Research Interest

Topic: JA PA SYNDROME AND YOUNG HEALTH PROFESSIONALS WHO FORM THE EMERGING WORKFORCE

Description: I have in 2023 presented four seminars and two research papers on the relationship between multiple intelligences and indicators of migration and entrepreneurship in Young Health Professionals. I have further completed a Doctor of Business Administration degree thesis with recommendations on how to curb the decades old japa syndrome that has been making medical education in Nigeria inadequate. I continue to investigate how educational interventions can actualize multiple intelligences in Young Health Professionals, particularly: entrepreneurial intelligence for personal contributions, emotional intelligence to respond to local needs, scientific intelligence to be innovative, cultural intelligence for adaptability, as well as financial intelligence and recognition of green pastures at home for job satisfaction. Brain drain is perhaps the crucial problem to solve for strategic nation building in Nigeria and especially for the struggling Health Sector, thus this line of investigations is important for me, having a Master s degree in Health Professions Education and a Doctor of Business Administration degree.

ABSTRACT ACCEPTANCES VERSUS CONFERENCE PRESENTATIONS IN GLOBAL PHARMACOLOGY CONFERENCES: SPECIAL REFERENCE TO AFRICAN PARTICIPATION

Research Details

BACKGROUND: Research and development and scientists are important for Africa. We hypothesised that the numbers of abstracts accepted for presentation are significantly greater than the numbers of corresponding presentations in pharmacology conferences. METHODS: We investigated poster presentations at 3 international pharmacology conferences: the 17th World Congress of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology WCP 2014 , Cape Town, South Africa; the 7th European Congress of Pharmacology EPHAR 2016 , Istanbul, Turkey; and the XXXIXth Annual Conference of the West African Society for Pharmacology WASP/SOAP 2016 , Kumasi, Ghana to find out if scientists were presenting their posters according to the official programme. The poster sessions were visited at the times stipulated by the organizers for the presenters to be stationed by their posters. RESULTS: Percent poster presentations was highest for the European Congress of Pharmacology; more than 95percent of the attendants were from European countries. The lowest percent poster presentations was for the West African Society for Pharmacology, WASP2016; 100percent of the attendants were from West Africa. The World Congress, WCP2014, which embraced the whole world, had a percentage poster presentation similar to the average of the highest and the lowest. There was strong positive correlation, r is 0.0945, between the arrays of numbers of seen and numbers of unseen posters for the three conferences showing the bigger the conference the bigger the number of failed submissions. The significance of this by one tailed paired t test is p is 0.0575. CONCLUSION/CONTRIBUTION: Globally, a nonsignificant number of scientists that submit abstracts fail to present at conferences. A marked difference between global and African international conference participation after acceptance of abstracts needs to be addressed.
