It is hard to believe that we are approaching our 4th annual conference,"Helping Tomorrow's Patients Today". We are working diligently to bring yet another outstanding agenda to Houston Texas this year. We will have great topics including; Improvement Sciences in Clinical Research Nursing, Financial Management of Clinical Trials, Taking Abstracts to Publications, Process Improvement for Informed Consent, Pediatric Clinical Research Nursing and many topics to help you and your organization grow. Be sure to check the web site regularly for more information.
IACRN is working hard to bring more to our members. Our new Vision "Enhancing Clinical Research Quality and Safety through Specialized Nursing Practice" paired with our Mission "to define, validate and advance clinical research nursing as a specialty practice and to support the professional development of registered nurses who directly or indirectly impact the care of clinical research participants" are driving forces for the next 5 year strategic planning.
It is through the commitment of our membership that we have been able to sustain and build this organization over these last few years. Thank you to all of you that have and continue to contribute to the growth of IACRN. Our research participants are counting on us to ensure clinical research quality and safety through specialized practice. I hope that you will take advantage of all our organization has to offer and encourage your colleagues to do the same. I look forward to meeting you all in Houston this Fall.
