Enhancing clinical research quality and safety through specialized nursing practice.
The Importance of Professional Development: Why it Matters
Wednesday, December 8, 2021
1:00 – 2:00 PM ET
The complex and rapidly growing clinical research enterprise requires research professionals with advanced knowledge, skills, and competencies to meet the growing demands. Through professional development activities, research professionals can reach their professional goals for growth and development, and at the same time meet the needs of a demanding and dynamic research environment. This is especially true for clinical research nurses who need to maintain both clinical and research competencies. This session will discuss professional development and associated activities, how to develop a professional development plan, and the importance of competency-based education for research professionals.
