Pediatric Nursing: Care of the Hospitalized Child 2013

Progress and challenges abound in the care of acutely ill children. As the evidence base for treatment and care decisions continues to grow, accepted “best practices” continue to evolve in response to the latest research findings. Not only does this information facilitate better short and long-term outcomes - it provides hope for solutions to the many unanswered questions and ongoing clinical puzzles that exist in pediatric medicine. As nurses, we’re encouraged and optimistic!

The 25th Annual Pediatric Nursing: Care of the Hospitalized Child Conference offers the opportunity to explore the current evidence and consider the clinical implications with both our expert faculty and your nursing colleagues. Experience an “aha!” moment as a concept becomes clear to you, and you look forward to sharing your new insight with fellow clinicians.  Return to work enthusiastic and energized to care for these fragile pediatric patients. We hope you’ll join us in Anaheim!
