Look for a regular series of contributions from Heidi from her perspective as a Regional Clinical Research Associate.  This month, her first article is about lack of effective communication in clinical trials.  Inhibited communication causes misunderstandings, resulting in costly delays in time resources and the effective collection of data and subject safety.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog thats both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. Im very happy I came across this in my search.

    Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumble upon every day. It’s always interesting to read through content from other authors and use a little something from other web sites.

    You understand a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a subject that has been discussed for a long time. Wonderful stuff, just great!

    Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Cheers!

    I and also my guys were found to be following the best points from your web page then before long came up with an awful feeling I had not expressed respect to the blog owner for them. Those women are already totally passionate to study all of them and have now certainly been enjoying these things. Appreciation for genuinely very thoughtful and also for picking out varieties of incredibly good issues most people are really wanting to know about. My sincere apologies for not saying thanks to earlier.
