International Fellowship Program: City Hosts, Fellowship Applicants Wanted
The AARC is looking for city hosts for its 2013 International Fellowship Program, so if you're interested in hosting a colleague from abroad this fall, read more about it and then apply.

Best Practices in Respiratory Care Productivity and Staffing
Ensuring patient safety is paramount in the nation’s health care facilities, and that requires adequate staffing of respiratory care departments. Our new White Paper provides the guidance you need to educate your administrators about acceptable standards of practice recognized by the profession. This members-only document can help you make your case when seeking to maintain or increase FTEs.
