Feedback from 2017 Attendees

“Process improvement projects were emphasized greatly which is valuable to all facilities”

“Thought it was well organized with the appropriate breaks and time to interact. Wouldn’t change it!”

“I really enjoyed the breakout sessions. They were small enough to be able to ask questions of the experts. The panel discussion was also very informative.”

“I really enjoyed the level of interaction by physicians. It showed how much they value all the hard work the nurse abstractors and data managers do to make them look good.”

“It was great to have an extra half day session. I thought having breakout sessions the first day was an improvement, more relevant for participants to choose which modules they wanted to do a deeper dive into. Poster presentations were a great addition – I’m sure participation will grow in the future. Great job! Thank you!”

“Excellent conference. The educational sessions by the physicians on Tuesday were very informative and helpful (break outs).”
