According to the Alliance for Continuing Education in Health Professionals, continuing education has been proven effective at improving patient outcomes and saving lives. Further, continuing education helps bridge the gap between what was learned after completing traditional education and current medical advancements and policy directives. As clinical research professionals we need, now more than ever, to seek out continued training in order to stay successful in our industry. Opportunities such as this conference give us the tools we need to stay relevant in our chosen profession. Through conferences and continued training we can achieve better outcomes in our clinical trials, maintain or establish our expertise within our industry and community, and better serve our customers (our sponsors, CROs, and volunteer.) Continued training also results in personal gains. Individuals who continually seek out and complete training enjoy higher job satisfaction, increased confidence in their daily tasks, and higher salaries.
