    2016 AANP Specialty and Leadership Conference Sept 22-25

    We know we must keep up to date and medicine changes quickly. We read journals, we talk with colleagues, we attend local meetings. However, attending national conferences is also a great way to get current info as well as network with colleagues throughout the nation.

    AANP is one of the leading providers of CME for nurse practitioners in the US. Their conferences provide current and evidence based practice information to practice safely and effectively. The 2016 conference will be held September 22-25th in Rosemont, IL and they will offer four tracks:

    Business/Health Policy/Leadership - who doesn’t need to know more about the business aspect of healthcare? For many of us, this topic was touched on lightly or not at all during school and yet it is at the forefront of our professional lives nowadays. Most of us agree that the more we know about the business side of healthcare, the better we can provide for our patients. Here are some of the topics that will be covered in this conference:

    Coding and reimbursement
    Surviving the transition to value based reimbursement
    Developing and NP business plan
    Creating a medical home
    Legal Issues for NPs

    Convenient Care/Urgent Care - many NPs are employed in outpatient venues dealing with acute episodic care. As healthcare has become more portable and our society more mobile, many patients no longer count on their primary care provider for all their care. AANP has this covered as well with the following subjects:

    Antibiotic update
    Emerging infectious diseases
    Minimizing errors in diagnosis
    OTC cough and cold meds
    Depression and anxiety
    Future of healthcare for UC/Convenient Care Clinics

    Dermatology - rashes, abscesses, skin...ugh!!! Help! Who hasn’t been faced with a rash and thought to themselves, “oh oh, I have not clue what this is.” Referring to derm or consulting a dermatologist isn’t always practical or possible. AANP to the rescue with these timely sessions:

    Cutaneous manifestations of systemic disease
    Non-melanoma skin cancer
    Biopsy techniques
    Cosmetic dermatology update
    Benign neoplasms

    Pain Management/Palliative Care - managing pain when pain is manageable, relieving pain, managing the unmanageable are all tenets of pain management and palliative care. Patients are living with chronic and acute pain. Also, many patients have chronic and multiple chronic disease processes where they may benefit from a palliative care approach. In this track, the following topics will be covered:

    Extended release and long-acting opioids
    Management of post-op pain
    Patient engagement
    Women’s Pain Issues
    Children with headaches
    Integrative approaches to pain in primary care

    Registration is currently open. Sessions fill up fast! Rosemont, IL is near O’Hare International Airport (Chicago, IL).

    Some of our members have commented on past AANP conferences:

    “I always go to the AANP conference every year.”

    “AANP is one of the gold standards for APN CME.”
