Join the Hydrocephalus Association and Dr. Mark Hamilton, AHCRN Chair, for an update on the Adult Hydrocephalus Clinical Research Network (AHCRN). In our next webinar, Adult Hydrocephalus Clinical Research Network Update, participants will learn about the goals of the AHCRN, the information collected in the Core Data Registry, and future clinical studies.
The AHCRN is comprised of 4 Clinical Centers located throughout the United States and Canada and the DCC located in at the University of Utah. By coordinating research across 4 centers, the AHCRN is able to efficiently collect patient data, recruit patients for future clinical trials, and simultaneously run multiple clinical trials. Data vetting and analysis is then performed by the highly talented DCC staff which includes data coordinators, managers, and biostatisticians. Through this approach the AHCRN is able to obtain and disseminate high quality and high impact research.
Tune in on Monday, October 5 at 7:00 PM EDT to hear about progress after 1 year of patient enrollment.
This webinar is ideal for anyone who wants to learn more about the Adult Hydrocephalus Clinical Research Network (AHCRN). We welcome patients, their families, health professionals and researchers.
