Warning: Predatory Conference Organizers

If you thought it was difficult to assess whether or not a solicitation to submit a manuscript to an online open-access journal is legitimate, now comes the spawn of predatory journals: predatory conferences. To help us sort out the claims of conference participation solicitations, Jeffrey Beall’s ScholarlyOA web site provides a draft of criteria for identifying predatory conferences, written by James McCrostie, a full-time associate professor and part-time journalist in Japan who has written about such conferences.

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.

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.
