Call for Presentations - AANAC and AADNS Conference

Long-term care has come a long way in the last 20 years, and monumental change is coming. As we envision the future of healthcare, we’ve chosen a new direction for AADNS and for the annual conference. This new direction will break down barriers and foster a new paradigm of collaboration and innovation.

In 2019, AADNS’s parent organization, the American Association of Post-Acute Care Nursing (AAPACN), will offer nurse leaders a unique education and networking opportunity by unifying the AADNS and the American Association of Nurse Assessment Coordination (AANAC) conferences.

We invite you to be a speaker at the 2019 AANAC and AADNS Conference, April 3 – 5 in Orlando, FL at the Rosen Centre Hotel. We are looking for long-term care experts and enthusiasts who are ready to share their experiences and expertise to help their peers handle the twists and turns of ever-changing regulations.

We are looking for speakers who would like to share insights on the following topics for the nurse leadership track of breakout sessions:

·         Strategies for enhancing collaboration between the DNS and the NAC

·         Tips for compliance – PDPM, Phase 3, QRP, VBP

·         Financial needs and planning for PDPM and Phase 3

·         Infection Control

·         Writing a plan of correction

·         Trauma-informed care

·         Staff retention

·         Readmission prevention – QRP, VBP, QMs

·         Preventing deficiencies through quality systems

·         Integrating care delivery systems with required programs (RoP, PDPM, QRP, VBP, Five-Star)

·         Documenting care in 2019 – required for success

If the opportunity to inspire the future of nurse leadership sounds like your calling, now is your time to sign up! The format will be a 60-minute breakout session (40 - 500 attendees, depending on their interest in the topic). Selected speakers will receive a complimentary conference registration (a $480 value).

The AANAC and AADNS Conference content team will review submissions, and speakers will be notified in November.  The deadline to submit a proposal is Friday, October 19, 2018.  If you have questions, please contact the conference team at   We look forward to your proposal!

Helpful tips for completing the call for presentation form:

1. This web form does not auto-save, so be sure to review all of the questions and have all of your answers ready to input at the same time for submission.

2. Be specific with your topic.  60 minutes may seem like a long time, but ask former presenters and they will tell you that time flies.  It is better to cover a smaller topic very well than to promise too much and be incomplete.

3. If you are a consultant or service provider, consider presenting with one of your clients. The real-life stories the two of you can provide create a unique learning experience that can be more engaging and memorable than a lecture.
