Hi all,  This year's Conference in Maryland was great. I enjoyed the speakers and topics and meeting up with far flung colleagues. Our Chapter again co-hosted a Tri-Chapter Networking Event with Canada and Baltimore-Washington that was a big success.  I again led the Chapters Leaders lunch meeting on Monday where we recognized the 3 Chapter Excellence Awardees and  had lively discussion in breakouts to discuss best practices challenges and successes.

After 5 years in hospital pharmacy followed by 25 years in retail pharmacy, I have decided to pursue a new career in clinical studies.  Can anyone suggest to me how to get started?  I joined the ACRP just a few weeks ago and understand that I need to either be hired by a company willing to put me through the training or start training myself.  I also wonder about job potential in the Concord, NH area.  My email is virgingerfield@gmail.com if someone would rather offer their honest thoughts directly to me.  Thanks very much.

This survey is part of an IRB approved research study to determine the activities performed by oncology nurses whose primary responsibility is direct (example: ...

The new Apple wearable device is no longer on my "watch" list, and that's because it's now on my wrist! After one week with the Apple Watch, I find myself ramping up my search for news articles discussing health tracking features, along with updates concerning the ResearchKit SDK and the apps already available. And all of this information has got me thinking about where the Apple Watch will fit into the future of clinical research. But before we get to my vision, we need to start with where we are now. All of the entities involved in healthcare are trying to reach the right balance between safety, effectiveness, efficiency, and cost. For the ...

Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew of a software company that had a product that would piggie back an EMR system? We are trying to find a software to purchase that could attach to our EMR and we could run reports for more specific criteria. Our current EMR has reporting but it is limited by only diagnosis, age criteria, medication and medical history diagnosis. I can not search key words in bodies of text, which would be extremely helpful. I would appreciate any advice you could offer. Sincerely, Kristina Cleveland, CCR
