Letter from the President

Dr. Nabil Hassan

Welcome all members,

For the spring newsletter edition, I wish to focus on two features I feel truly show SABM’s influence in the national and international PBM arena:

First, save the date and join us for the 2017 Annual Meeting in Portland, September 6 - 9, 2017.  The Annual Meeting theme is “Rising to the Summit” and is so fitting for our organization as we continue to have outstanding speakers and content covering an array of important PBM topics.  Included in the agenda, once again, is the exceptional and ever-growing Certificate Course.  No other professional society provides such a high quality course. Encourage your fellow members to attend and become official certificate “grads”.   And, please note that abstracts are being accepted.  We love hearing and seeing what your programs have accomplished.  This is an opportunity to share your programs’ outcomes.

Second, pursuant to research, be certain to review the featured articles in the Breaking Clinical News subsection.  This will be an ongoing item in the newsletter of which I am personally so excited.  There are many of our members publishing great work, whether in Anesthesia & Analgesia, Critical Care Nursing, or in other renowned journals and texts.  We congratulate you on your PBM efforts that add to this body of literature.

SABM membership continues to grow and thrive.  We can keep this momentum going as we proceed through the year, holding on to the exceptional standards, evidence-based, patient-centered practices and publications that reflect the energy of this society.

Thank you for your continued excellence and service,

Dr. Nabil Hassan
