The International Nurses Society on Addictions (IntNSA) presents its 43rd Annual Education Conference: Substance Use Across the Lifespan. Still accepting registrations!
Wednesday-Saturday, Oct. 9-12
Crowne Plaza Baltimore Inner Harbor
School of Nursing faculty Katherine Fornili, IntNSA president, and Charon Burda, IntNSA director, both will present.
This conference focuses on the requisite knowledge, skills, and abilities for any nurse or allied care professional who cares for persons coping with substance use, abuse, and addiction issues. Providing patient-centered care through prevention, screening, treatment, and recovery services is best brought about when interdisciplinary teams work together to accomplish effective and successful patient care outcomes. Interdisciplinary collaboration utilizes the Institute of Medicine’s core competencies of evidence-based practice, informatics, and quality assurance to promote positive lifestyle changes. Attendees will increase their skills and knowledge base for collaborative practice with healthcare colleagues to further patient-centered care for those with substance use disorders.
