CFP: Clinic Advisor Summit

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.

CFP: Relating Cultural Inclusiveness to Social Determinants of Health,

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:

  • 20% of children from the poorest of households are twice as likely to die before their fifth birthday compared to children in the richest.
  • Women in Afghanistan have a lifetime risk of maternal death of 1 in 11, women in Ireland have a risk of 1 in 17,800.
  • In the United States, while African Americans represent only 12% of the population, they account for half of all new HIV infections.
  • Something must be done.

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.

CFP: Advances in Nursing Science

Given recent history of international conflict and violence, the health and well-being of those who have served the military of any country world-wide has become a major challenge that influences the well-being of families, communities and nations. This issue of ANS includes four articles that address the health of veterans and their families, and a guest editorial that provides information about the U.S. military research programs that are addressing these significant challenges. In addition, this issue includes a number of “General Topic” articles that extend the discourse in a number of areas of important nursing scholarship. Each article in this issue will be featured on the ANS blog, so I invite you to visit and follow the blog to stay informed about the latest in ANS! Visit our ANS Blog to share your comments.

Professor Emerita, University of Connecticut
Editor, Advances in Nursing Science
The primary purposes of Advances in Nursing Science (ANS) are to advance the development of nursing knowledge and to promote the integration of nursing philosophies, theories and research with practice. While the journal provides scholarly articles that have relevance for all health-related disciplines, we are particularly committed to claiming nursing’s rightful place in the development of health knowledge. We expect high scholarly merit and encourage innovative, cutting edge ideas that challenge prior assumptions and that present new, intellectually challenging perspectives. We seek works that speak to global sustainability and that take an intersectional approach, recognizing class, color, sexual and gender identity, and other dimensions of human experience related to health. Manuscripts can be based on any methodology, including scholarly inquiry/research, philosophic and theoretic analysis/synthesis, integrative reviews, and original exploration of diverse approaches to creating nursing knowledge. All submissions must include a statement that addresses the significance of the work for the evolution of the discipline of nursing.

CFP: CANS 2016

Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science 2016 State of the Science Congress


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 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



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.
