Keynote Address

GS101 - Navigating Advocacy, Beyond the Bedside
Janet Haebler, MSN, RN
Description
Everyone is touched by the policy and politics of the health care system and the impact of decisions made within healthcare settings and in the legislative and regulatory arenas. Nurses are well positioned to identify and influence what is needed for the health of patients, the community and the profession. While nurses excel at the bedside, seeking solutions to problems while serving on Boards and in the legislative arena are less familiar for many nurses. Stepping out of one’s comfort zone is often as simple as asking a nurse to consider getting involved. This session is intended to review 2019 healthcare trends expected in Congress and state legislatures nationwide while demystifying opportunities for nurses to engage.
Learning Objectives
Participants will exhibit increased political competence, enabling each to select from a variety of options and apply the new knowledge and skills for effective state and/or federal advocacy.

Cutaneous Manifestations of Viral Infections of Pediatric & Youth

NP224 - AANP
Peggy Vernon, MA, RN, CPNP, DCNP, FAANP
Description
Although immunizations are available for many viral conditions, it remains the responsibility of the clinician to recognize and treat patients who present with viral exanthems. This is now more challenging because the majority of our population is immunized against many of these rashes, therefore they are not as prevalent as they once were. Additionally, not all viral lesions have vaccines available. While it is important to identify and treat the exanthem, it is also important to identify and execute isolation procedures when ecessary for community protection, and which viral rashes and lesions do not need to be isolated.
Learning Objectives
Identify a potential sequelae from hand, foot, and mouth disease. Describe the pattern of distribution and lesion description of varicella. Describe the treatment rationale for HSP.

Improving Melanoma Prognostic Ability Using Gene Expression Profiling

NP 234 - AANP
James Sligh, MD, PhD.
Supported by Castle Biosciences, Inc.
Description
The speaker will present an overview of melanoma staging including limitations of our current staging tools in failing to properly identify patients who are at high risk for melanoma recurrence. New approaches for proper identification of high risk patients based on gene expression profiling in tumors will be explained. The use of gene expression profiling in clinical decision making will be explored.
Learning Objectives
Describe the limitations of current AJCC staging in identification of patients who are at high risk for melanoma metastasis.

Understanding and Predicting Indoor Tanning Cessation Using Mulit-Theory Model of Behavior Change

GS302
Vinayak K. Nahar, MD, PhD, MS, FRSPH.
Description
There is a strong evidence that indoor tanning increases the risk of melanoma skin cancer. Given high rates of indoor tanning, it is imperative to develop theory-based indoor tanning cessation interventions. The multi-theory model (MTM) is a fourth-generation newly developed theoretical framework that addresses both one-time and long-term behavior change. Dr. Nahar will present his research using MTM to understand the process of indoor tanning cessation behavior. Topics to be addressed include MTM, indoor tanning behaviors, theory-based constructs influencing the indoor tanning cessation, and development of indoor tanning cessation interventions. Nurses role in indoor tanning cessation will be discussed. Describe indoor tanning behaviors, identify theory based constructs influencing the indoor tanning cessation, and develop educational indoor tanning cessation interventions.

Kodachromes: Case Based Review of Common and Rare Dermatologic Disorders

NP304 - AANP
Stan Tolkachjov, MD, FAAD, FACMS.
Description
Recognition of complex and common diagnoses is often done from a careful physical examination. Clinical images is one of the most important and most interesting ways of medical education, especially in the field of dermatology. This presentation uses unique clinical images to allow recognition of key features leading to diagnoses. These diagnoses are then discussed in the context of management with prognosis, clinical pearls, and treatment options. The interactive nature of this presentation allows the entire audience to be engaged in active learning.
Learning Objectives
Describe common and uncommon diagnoses and discuss management following this case-based format.
