Angela P. Clark, PhD, RN, ACNS-BC, FAAN, FAHA, was honored at the American Academy of Nursing national conference in Washington, D.C., October 2014, as one of 50 Edge Runner from 2006 to the present. She was recognized for her pioneer work on family presence during resuscitation and invasive procedures, which continues to influence national and international policy changes. She has worked with numerous research projects to study outcomes from family presence and is part of a team currently completing a multisite study of almost 1,000 family presence events.

Edge Runners are practice innovators who have led the way in bringing new thinking and new methods to a wide range of health care challenges. They have developed care models and interventions that demonstrate significant, sustained clinical and financial outcomes. Many of the projects underscore the courage and fighting spirit of nurse leaders who have persevered despite institutional inertia or resistance.
