Part of the mission of REF is support of scientific research. The REF Research Awards Program promotes and encourages innovative research within the profession of pharmacy and nursing. Initiated in 1989, The REF Research Awards Program was designed to stimulate and support research related to the practice of pharmacy and nursing and to encourage the publication of finished manuscripts.
This comprehensive program consists of several awards encompassing such areas as infectious disease, critical care, geriatrics, biotechnology, oncology, HIV, institutional pharmacy and nursing practice. Special consideration will be given to Collaborative Drug Therapy (CDTM) demonstration projects.
Each award includes a $2,000, 1 hotel accommodation, a certificate of achievement and 1 registration to the NYSCHP Annual Assembly at the Turning Stone in Verona, New York. Awards will be presented at the NYSCHP Installation and Awards Banquet, Friday, May 3, 2013.
