The Perspectives (Ofek)
In recognition of the potential development of innovative ideas originating from intensive therapies and treatments, the Perspectives Research Program for Paramedical Researchers was established in 2020.
This program seeks to encourage innovative ideas generated by physiotherapists, social workers, psychologists, communication therapists, alternative medicine practitioners, spiritual companions, dietitians; occupational therapists, or art therapists – as a direct result of their intensive patient observations and interactions.
Awardees receive a monetary grant that is applied toward implementing and actuating improvement in patient therapies and treatments in real time. This program is currently funded through Rambam's Research and Development fund.
