2016 Forum Call for Speakers

Why Present at the 2016 Educational & Networking Forum?

As a presenter, you will interact with an appreciative audience of LNC professionals who will apply your insights to meet their daily challenges. Many other professionals have found this speaking experience gratifying and helpful for their career development. Also, you will receive ample benefits from the networking opportunities - one of the hallmarks of the AALNC Legal Nurse Consulting Educational and Networking Forum experience. If you are an LNCC, presenting an educational program on a topic related to legal nurse consulting is one way to earn contact hours toward your certification renewal.

AALNC recognizes the effort and expertise that are required for developing and presenting high quality educational programming and deeply appreciates the volunteer spirit of the Forum speakers. As such, AALNC is happy to provide RN speakers with complimentary full conference registration (excluding optional activities) and an equivalent gift for our non-RN speakers. Thank you in advance for volunteering your time and sharing your expertise with AALNC.

Categories

Please review the following categories as you plan your submission. AALNC plans all educational activities in accordance with needs assessment criteria and processes established by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Based upon the learning needs expressed by our target audience, the Forum Planning Committee identifies the overall subject categories to be addressed at next year's Forum. All submissions should pertain to one of the following established categories.

LNC Professional & Business Issues

Issues in this area include topics such as practical tips for "getting started" in Legal Nurse Consulting, marketing strategies for the independent LNC, and business strategies and challenges such as setting up a business, billing, contracts, researching medical information, equipment and technology resources and projecting a professional image.

LNC Practice Issues

Legal Nurse Consultants - regardless of their practice setting - face challenging practice issues such as analysis of electronic medical records, ICD-10 coding, life care planning and trial preparation and the trial process. Other topics are the role of the LNC in litigation issues involving workers compensation, personal injury, product liability, medical malpractice, mediation and arbitration.

Clinical Issues

Ambulatory surgical centers and office surgery clinical issues seem to dominate the clinical interests of our learners as clinical areas at high risk for liability. Other areas of interest include forensic nursing, pharmacological topics, musculoskeletal injuries and neurological issues-just to name a few!

Insurance/Risk Management Issues

LNCs who work in the arenas of Insurance, Workers Compensation and Risk Management, have unique learning needs. Potential topics include: mechanisms of injury and causation, physical dynamics of MVAs, biomechanical issues in slip and fall cases, fraud/SIU investigations, opioids and narcotic drug dependence issues, impairment ratings, or presentations by physicians on specific injuries such as eye claims and dental claims.
