Apna 27th Annual Conference Highlights Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Educational Program Highlights
  • 2. Wednesday: Pre-Conference Understanding Sleep and Antidepressants: Lessons from Research Literature and Clinical Practice "This presentation made me...reconsider what I've thought about sleep as it relates to mental illness. The new research is exciting and motivating. As an employee at the VA it was especially helpful to have a presenter who deals with some of the same issues I see in practice." - Attendee APNA 27th ANNUAL CONFERENCE October 9 -12, 2013 ● Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center ● San Antonio, TX
  • 3. Opening Program President's Address "This Session has changed the way I think about PMH nursing and nursing overall. It has increased my self efficacy and makes me feel more empowered as a nurse as well as credible to speak to and inform other new nurses about who we are and what we do." - Attendee APNA 27th ANNUAL CONFERENCE October 9 -12, 2013 ● Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center ● San Antonio, TX
  • 4. Thursday Keynote: Tom Rath Strengths, Leadership, and Wellbeing: How Small Choices Make a Big Difference "I loved how [he] talked about focusing on our strengths, as well as our subordinate's strengths. I think it really will help to make the milieu better and will move people from actively disengaged to engaged! I found it interesting that wounds heal faster when a patient is in a good environment! That is a great point to use when working in a difficult environment." -Attendee All attendees received a free copy of Tom Rath's latest book, Eat Move Sleep: How Small Choices Lead to Big Changes. APNA 27th ANNUAL CONFERENCE October 9 -12, 2013 ● Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center ● San Antonio, TX
  • 5. Thursday Session Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: An Update on Research and Practice “I loved how you showed us what the nurse will do during EMDR. I didn't realize it could be used for other things and I appreciate you giving us a brief picture as to where this procedure was going. I am very excited to hear how well it has been working for patients.” - Attendee APNA 27th ANNUAL CONFERENCE October 9 -12, 2013 ● Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center ● San Antonio, TX
  • 6. Friday Keynote: Suzanne Gordon Team Intelligence in Action: The Key to Nursing Voice and Patient Safety "I needed this session so much. I am new NP in a physiciancentered institution who has been marginalized since beginning my practice. I was beginning to lose sight of what I have to offer within my nursing background. I have mustered the courage to speak up for myself and my profession on a few occasions but then my anxiety goes sky high after (for being "that person"). Thank you APNA and Suzanne Gordon for giving me exactly what I needed." - Attendee APNA 27th ANNUAL CONFERENCE October 9 -12, 2013 ● Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center ● San Antonio, TX
  • 7. Friday Symposium Luncheon From Misdiagnosis to Treatment Failures: Nursing Strategies to Mitigate the Burden of Bipolar Depression "The heartfelt sharing of the speaker's lived experience with his bipolar diagnosis, the insight into the client's life and heart, the lack of choices and the desire to live a "normal" life - This truly brought the pain of this diagnosis to my heart. This is the only session where you could have heard a pin drop in the room. Eric Arauz...an incredible speaker." - Attendee APNA 27th ANNUAL CONFERENCE October 9 -12, 2013 ● Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center ● San Antonio, TX
  • 8. Friday Session Boy: TDTM Girl: CD9 - Decoding the Dangers of Teen Sexting "Many of our adolescent patients utilize sexting; understanding the legal implications is very helpful to increase the patients' awareness of potential consequences of this behavior." - Attendee APNA 27th ANNUAL CONFERENCE October 9 -12, 2013 ● Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center ● San Antonio, TX
