IAHCSMM has long recognized the importance of providing its members with trusted, timely and user-friendly information that can be readily applied to CS departments. In addition to IAHCSMM's bi-monthly newsletter Communiqué and its myriad other informational and educational offerings, the Association saw a need for a monthly, email-based resource that would help bring pertinent industry-related information to its members sooner - and in a convenient, succinct, reader-friendly format. Central Source is now delivered via email on opposite months that the printed Communiqué hits newstands.
Although keeping a finger on the pulse of the profession is essential for promoting ongoing quality and success in CS, IAHCSMM also understands that time is a commodity for many of today's busy CS professionals. With that in mind, Central Source brings focused columns, timely tips and CS- and Association-related news directly to members' inboxes. Our primary goal? To give even the most time- and resource-constrained CS professionals an outlet for obtaining current, practical (yet entertaining) information that will further promote pride, professionalism and quality within the sterile processing discipline.
