ANA Policy, Innovation & Advocacy Virtual Forum, Sep. 14

Learn how nurses can help shape the future of healthcare policy

Are you wondering what’s next for healthcare policy and what part nurses can play in shaping it?

Mark your calendars for the ANA’s first Policy, Innovation and Advocacy (PI+A) virtual forum this September.

Nurse Advocacy and Public Policy Moderated by Mary Wakefield, RN, Ph.D., FAAN (photo above, right), the PI+A virtual forum will bring together leaders in healthcare policy and nurse-led innovation in a day-long event.

Topics include:

◗ How nurses can advocate for (or against) policy changes that affect the profession at the local, state and federal levels

◗ The importance of nurses’ voices in shaping new payment and reimbursement models

Nursing Education

◗ What opportunities (and challenges) the expanded use of telehealth presents for care delivery

◗ How nursing diversity can strengthen the healthcare system and improve health outcomes.

Nurse-Led Products and Keynote Address

The PI+A forum will also showcase new nurse-led products, programs and businesses as part of NursePitch, a partnership between the ANA and HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, Inc.).

This year’s keynote address will be by Rear Adm. Susan M. Orsega, FNP-BC, MSN, FAANP, FAAN (photo above, left), director of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps Headquarters. As Working Nurse readers already know, earlier this year, Orsega also served as acting U.S. surgeon general.
