ANNA 34th National Symposium: focus on the future: realities, challenges, solutions: registration brochure: Chicago: April 25-28, 2003—Hyatt Regency Chicago

This is your invitation to join ANNA colleagues at the premier nephrology nursing meeting of the year, ANNA’s 34th Annual Symposium. You will feel a sense of renewal and excitement for our profession by sharing with acquaintainces from past Symposiums and experiencing the joy of learning. You will have the opportunity to:

* explore the Future Realities of the nursing profession,

* examine the Challenges facing all those working in the Nephrology arena, and

* endeavor to create Solutions with your colleagues to enrich the lives of those affected by real or potential kidney disease.

This is a must-attend continuing education event that offers networking sessions, abstract presentations (poster and verbal), an opportunity to visit with exhibitor colleagues, and 32 contact hours in continuing nursing education through the Preconference, 3-day Symposium, Postconference, and corporate-sponsored educational sessions.

The program planning committee has worked to cover all levels of learning needs, from the first time attendee to the person attending his or her 34th Symposium; from the beginning nephrology nurse to the very experienced one, and for all practice arenas. Those health care professionals concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of renal disease will find something of interest at this Symposium. From past evaluations, conversations in the ANNA Forum, the literature, and from your stated practice challenges, an exciting National Symposium has been put together. The Program Committee, a group of practicing nephrology nurses from varied practice arenas, have worked together looking at clinical practice challenges, nursing profession realities, and information that may assist all of us in creating solutions to these challenges and realities. Come, connect with colleagues, and celebrate our mission of advancing quality patient care.

The goals for the meeting are to:

* Promote the contribution of each nephrology nurse in achieving ANNA’s vision of evidence-based practice.

* Form professional and personal alliances that support nephrology patient care across specialties, regions, and nations.

* Provide an environment that celebrates the excellence and excitement of nephrology nursing.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are vehicles for networking with other professionals. There are four Clinical and three Functional SIGs. The Clinical SIGs are modality or population specific: Hemodialysis, Peritoneal Dialysis, Transplantation, and Pediatrics. These sessions open the meeting on Saturday, April 26 from 7:45 am-9:00 am. The Functional SIGs are: Advanced Practice, Corporate/ Government, and Administration. Their focus is on roles within the diverse practice areas of nephrology nursing and will be presented on Sunday, April 27 from 3:45 pm-5:00 pm.

The topics selected for the SIG sessions come from concerns and questions expressed by the membership or practice issues stated on program evaluation forms, through e-mails, or posted on the ANNAForum through the ANNA Web site ANNAlink. The SIGs invite several ANNA Committees to share in their networking forum. are Professional Practice and Ethics Subcommittee, Research, and Education. Each session will begin with a facilitator addressing the scope of the problem to be discussed or review of the literature. Formal networking sessions are a time for sharing information and experiences, as well as problem-solving. The expertise and know-how comes from your colleagues. This is your opportunity to share. You may not agree with all of the ideas, and you may find that some ideas challenge your practice. That is the merit of these sessions–an opportunity for professional development. The names listed under each SIG or Committee session are the respective SIG Representatives or Committee Chairperson.
