The International Nurses Society on Addiction (IntNSA) is holding its 43rd Annual Educational Conference in Baltimore this fall.

Katherine Fornili, assistant professor, is the organization's president, and Charon Burda, assistant professor, is on the board.

Substance Use Across the Lifespan
Oct. 9-12, 2019
Crowne Plaza Baltimore Inner Harbor

The conference focuses on the requisite knowledge, skills, and abilities for any nurse who cares for persons with substance use, abuse, and addictions. 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 health care colleagues to further patient-centered care for those with substance use disorders.
