It's that time of year again! The Iowa Nurse Practitioner Society invites you to exhibit at the INPS 2017 Annual Conference. While we've had an annual conference for many years, this will be our 3rd Annual Pharmacology Conference. We expect attendance to be over 300 individuals.
The Conference will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in West Des Moines on Thursday, November 9th and Friday, November 10th. Educational topics will start on Thursday at 8:00am. We plan to have one-half hour increments for attendees to visit your booths. Your booth/table should be available Thursday and Friday, November 9th and 10th, from 7:30am to 4:00pm. Also, as an incentive for conference attendees to participate in the exhibits, we plan to offer a drawing for those who complete a vendor passport card. You may want to have a stamp or sticker to apply to each participant's card when they visit your booth.
Overview: This conference is designed to meet with continuing education needs of advanced practice nurses. There will be an intense review and update of new pharmacological agents. Discussion of drugs and treatment modalities relating to specific illnesses will be reviewed at length. Drug actions and indications for use and contraindications and side effects will be presented.
- Explain basic pharmacological and pharmacokinetic principles as they relate to devising a proper therapeutic regimen.
- Utilize evidence based medicine to select an appropriate therapeutic treatment plan for a given patient condition.
- Determine appropriate use for pharmacologic agents.
