Patient Safety, Treatment Advances to Dominate Nursing Conference

Latest advances in complex medical treatments and delivering safe, patient-centered, cost-effective care will be among the hot topics as thousands of nurses who care for high acuity and critically ill patients and their families convene this month in Washington, D.C.

The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) will host its annual National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition (NTI), May 15-20, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and nearby headquarters hotels in Washington, D.C. AACN expects attendance to top 6,000 nurses and include many at the forefront of research, academia, staff development, and management.

In addition to emerging trends in patient care, NTI sessions will focus on health care reform, patient safety, healthy work environments, pandemics, disasters, and many more issues facing those in the health care profession.

NTI will offer more than 300 sessions about best health care practices, now and in the future. Topics include the following, among others:

  • Understanding health care reform and its impact on caregivers
  • Keeping patients safe and preventing medication errors and infections
  • Presence of family members during CPR and complex procedures
  • Responding to disasters in the local community and across the globe
  • How healthy work environments benefit patient care and nurses' job satisfaction
  • Treating traumatic injuries
  • Providing palliative and end-of-life care

NTI includes the Critical Care Exposition, a comprehensive trade show geared specifically for high acuity and critical care. For more information, visit www.aacn.org/nti.
