PRIM&R is pleased to share a post by Krystal Bradford, CIP, a member of the PRIM&R Blog Squad for the 2014 Advancing Ethical Research (AER) Conference. The PRIM&R Blog Squad is composed of PRIM&R members who will blog here, on Ampersand, about the conference to give our readers an inside peek of what happened December 4-7 in Baltimore, MD.
With more than 100 sessions to choose from, there was a plethora of information available at the 2014 AER Conference. However, beyond the sessions, there was also a number of helpful resources and products that attendees could learn about and/or gain access to while in Baltimore.
One of the best features that PRIM&R introduced this year? The AER14 Conference app. Talk about information overload—this app gives users the ability to easily download all of the uploaded slide presentations from the conference! With every PRIM&R conference you can only be in one place at a time, but with the app you are able to view the presentations for sessions that you were unable to attend. Several slides have links to reference websites that you can use in your daily work when you are in need of a new resource. In addition, the app allows you to make notes on the slides to remind yourself of key points made in the presentation. When you return to the office, you can view these notes and email them to yourself, as you work to implement some of the things you learned during the conference.
