As part of its Raise the Voice campaign, in November 2006 the American Academy of Nursing (AAN) named Ann marie McCarthy and Charmaine Kleiber as "Edge Runners"--nurses who identify new models of care that integrate the physical and mental health of patients and who make a "clear connection between research and practical solutions." Pat Fort-Rogner, chief executive officer of the AAN, says "We hope patient-advocacy groups and federal agencies like the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality will take note."
