Presentation Submission Guidelines
Presentation Proposal submissions will be accepted in four tracks for 2017: Clinical Knowledge, LNC Business Skills, LNC Practice Issues and Buzz Topics. Each submission must include title, session description, detailed summary of content, relevance to LNC practice, and desired learning outcome. Most presentations will be 50 minutes in length with a 10-minute question/answer period; however, there may be an opportunity for an extended session. Complimentary registration for the general Forum (excluding optional activities) or an equivalent honorarium will be provided. Travel and housing arrangements will be the responsibility of the speaker.
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.
LNC Professional & Business Issues
Issues in this area include topics such as practical tips for "getting started" in Legal Nurse Consulting, communciation and leadership skills for independent and in-house LNCs, and marketing strategies for the independent LNC. Business strategies and challenges such as setting up a corporate structure, accounting, contracts, report writing, researching medical information, equipment and IT solutions, 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, trial preparation and the trial process. Other topics are the role of the LNC in litigation issues involving workers compensation, personal injury, product liability including mass tort and class action suits, medical malpractice, mediation and arbitration.
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 geriatrics, neurological issues, forensic nursing, cardiovascular topics, musculoskeletal injuries and pharmacological topics-just to name a few!
