A Fond Farewell to Cindy Mann
This month, ENACT bids farewell to visiting scholar Cindy Mann, RN. Cindy will be returning to her home in the United Kingdom to pursue educational opportunities at the doctoral level. We would like to thank Cindy for her contributions during her time at ENACT, and to acknowledge her accomplishments.
During her time here with ENACT, Cindy has completed two articles. One of them, “Recognizing and Meeting the Needs of People with Osteoarthritis in the Community” has been acepted for publication in the UK journal Primary Health Care and aims to increase recognition of osteoarthritis symptoms and resulting needs as well as raise awareness of the impact visiting nurses can have on quality of care. The second, which is currently being reviewed, is titled “Enhancing recruitment processes in a single-site randomized controlled trial using Internal Peer-review of Recruiting to a Trial (InterPReT)” and is about using peer review to improve ways in which recruiters convey study information and ensure fully informed consent from potential participants.
Of Cindy’s time here, center director Dr. Julie Keysor says “Cindy has made great contributions to ENACT as our research studies got underway, and it was a true pleasure to have her as part of our team. Her publication productivity while she was here is impressive and we wish her all the best as she moves forward with her career.”
Cindy notes, “I really want to thank everyone at ENACT, and especially Dr Keysor, for making this such an enjoyable and productive time for me. It’s been great to interact with all the energetic and talented people working here and catch their enthusiasm. I will certainly take that home with me and keep the connection. I wish you all the best in the great work you are doing and look forward to hearing about the results.”
Cindy, you have all our best wishes here at ENACT. Good luck in your future endeavors!
