The leading provider of clinical news and information for NPs and PAs proudly presents The Clinical Advisor Summit
The dynamics of primary care are changing. Gone are the days of one physician managing varying conditions and diseases across a patient’s life span. Today, multiple clinicians provide care to the same patient in the setting of a more patient-centered, coordinated, and effective healthcare delivery system.
At the three-day The Clinical Advisor Summit on April 7-9, 2016, in Orlando, FL, you will have access to expert case studies on an effective interprofessional approach to primary care. NPs and PAs will get a deeper perspective on emerging clinical topics affecting patients today.
The deadline for submission is March 4, 2016. See full submission guidelines here.
February 22nd is the last day to submit an abstract for Podium Presentations and March 1st is for Poster Presentations. Please see attached call for abstracts.
Also for your review is the conference agenda. Podium presentations will be given 30 minutes to include question and answer to present.
3rd Annual Cultural Inclusion Institute: Relating Cultural Inclusiveness to Social Determinants of Health, April 21-22, 2016
We live in a world of health inequities:
We must address the conditions of where and how people live if we are committed to improve the overall health disparities gap. It is evident that medical care alone is not enough. This conference brings together leading researchers, healthcare providers, patient advocates, educators, and students to exchange their knowledge and expertise in addressing the social determinants of health: economic stability, education, health and healthcare, neighborhood and the built environment, and social and community context.
Conference Registration is now available Register today
Registration fee is $300.00 (includes CE)
Conference Goal: Exchange knowledge, expertise, research, challenges, and successes in addressing issues related to social determinants of health: Economic Stability; Education; Health and Health Care; Neighborhood and Built Environment; Social and Community Context.
Who should submit? Primary Care Providers, Nurses, Social Workers, Educators, Researchers, Non-Profit Community Based Agencies, and Students.

Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science 2016 State of the Science Congress
PROPOSAL SUBMISSIONS DUE by DECEMBER 1st, 2015
As part of the celebration of the 15th Anniversary of Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science (CANS), teams of experts will have an opportunity to present a synthesis of evidence in an area consistent with the State of the Science (SOS) theme “Determinants of Health”. CANS believes that determinants of health are more than social factors. Determinants include social/environmental, behavioral/life style, and omics. Each presentation will be 1 hour in length and should synthesize the evidence, briefly describe the policy implications, and recommend initiatives to further advance the science in the area of the review. An opportunity to publish in Nursing Outlook is anticipated.
If you have questions, contact 15th Anniversary Task Force Chair: Patricia Underwood at firstname.lastname@example.org or 216-905-5903.
Interested parties are invited to complete the following proposal and submit it via email by December 1, 2015 to Holli DeVon, Science Committee Chair, at email@example.com.
One inch margins, single spaced, size twelve font
1. Focal area – one sentence identifying focal area of the synthesis
2. Relevance – One paragraph that describes how this area relates to the theme, “Determinants of Health.”
3. Team Members – List the team members including names, credentials and email contacts. (Teams should be led by a senior scientist with recognized expertise in the topic area.) NIH biosketches for each team member directly involved in the project must also be attached.
4. Justification – Briefly (1-2 paragraphs) describe the ability of the team to complete the synthesis by August 15, 2016 based on the expertise and resources available.
Proposals will be reviewed by the CANS Science Committee.
