1st National Conference for 
Nurse Practitioners in Acute Care (NPAC)

Barkley & Associates, Inc. is honored to invite you to participate in the 1st National Conference for Nurse Practitioners in Acute Care (NPAC).  Join over 800 colleagues from throughout the country as we commemorate diversity with this first conference theme, “Spanning the Scope of Acute Care Practice!”

On Thursday, April 6, 2017, the conference features two state-of-the art Pre-Conferences to benefit all practitioners working in acute care. These Pre-Conferences, 12-Lead EKG Workshop: From I’m not Always Sure to I’ve got It and Mechanical Ventilation Boot Camp: From the Top to Beyond the Basics, are anticipated to be filled to standing room only. Consider sharpening your skills by attending one or both!

Full conference registration begins at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, and the main event commences at 5:00 p.m. Following opening remarks, the conference Keynote Address, given by Julie Stanik-Hutt, PhD, ACNP-BC, GNP-BC, CNNS, FAANP, FAAN, Director of the Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Program at the University of Iowa is sure to ignite the audience as she addresses, The Power of Nurse Practitioners in Acute Care! Immediately following, we will adjourn to what will be a remarkable Welcome Reception and Grand Opening of the Exhibit Hall. Start your first night in Miami by capitalizing on the countless networking opportunities, while enjoying hors d'oeuvres, “drinks”, and all that the exhibitors have to offer.

A rich conference program, with literally something for everyone, continues all day Friday and Saturday. Packed with sessions presented by conference faculty with both national and international reputations, there will not be a session to miss. The conference speakers are all simply, “Second to none!” In addition, two peer-reviewed attendee poster sessions held on Friday and Saturday will feature the latest research and scholarly projects/activities in acute care.

Late Saturday and Sunday morning, the conference focus shifts to include the latest Pharmacology Updates in Acute Care to maximize attendees’ pharmacology continuing education requirements. Finally on Sunday, the closing address Nurse Practitioners in Acute Care: Where We Started, How We’ve Grown, and Vital Stats to Carry Home! is sure to send everyone back to work on Monday with their chins held high in pride for all we have done and accomplished in acute care.

While there, also remember to explore all that the cosmopolitan city of Miami and the surrounding area has to offer.

PRE-CONFERENCE #1:

12-Lead EKG Workshop: From I'm Not Always

Sure to I've Got It!


Kristine Scordo, PhD, ACNP-BC, FAANP

Forgotten how to calculate axis or even what it means? Forgotten the criteria for LVH? Is that a right or left bundle branch block—what’s the difference? My trauma patient has what looks like a STEMI, but I’m not sure! My next patient has a bifascicular hemiblock and first-degree AV block—should I be concerned?

These, and many more questions, will be addressed in this fast-paced 12-lead EKG interpretation workshop. Starting with the importance of cardiac vector and how to calculate axis deviation, the session will blitz through a review of a normal EKG to EKGs with bundle branch blocks, hypertrophy patterns, NSTEMI, and STEMI infarctions, as well as a review of the fascicular blocks.

So fasten your seatbelts for this rapid overview of what’s what in 12-lead EKG interpretation. By the end, you’ll go from “I’m not always sure” to “I’ve got it!”

5:15 pm-6:30 pm The Power of Nurse Practitioners in Acute Care

The Power of Nurse Practitioners in Acute Care


Over the last 27 years Nurse Practitioners have created a unique and growing role in the care of patients with acute, critical and complex chronic illnesses. The system in which we practice is highly complex and challenging. It is an environment which demands more than mere clinical expertise. How do we transform our practice from one that addresses the needs of individual patients, to a one that influences the care systems and patient populations we serve? Imagine what it would be like if the 34,000 nurse practitioners who are certified in or work with acutely and critically ill patients became more powerful practitioners. This session will prompt attendees to reflect on their practice and accept opportunities to increase their impact.

Hot Neuro Diagnoses in Acute Care Practice:
From Concussion to Herniation


Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability in the United States. To minimize the negative health and socioeconomic impacts of TBI, timely, focused, and high quality practitioner care from the moment of insult is imperative. This session will begin with a review of mechanism of injury, initial stabilization, and concussion evaluation and management. Radiologic imaging and interactive case studies will be utilized to overview the gamut of primary brain trauma identification with clinical exam findings. Pathophysiology of secondary brain injury with application of guideline-based evaluation techniques and pharmacologic intervention will be discussed. Whether TBI is uncovered on the athletic field or the critical care unit, participants will leave with practical knowledge to maximize prompt identification with appropriate intervention to minimize secondary brain injury and long term sequelae.

Maximizing Reimbursement for Nurse Practitioners
in Acute Care


NPs actively bill for their services and have thus gained the attention of regulatory bodies and insurance companies. In today’s healthcare environment, correct billing practices for NP services adds an important dimension to the role. It is important that NPs are diligent in keeping abreast of regulations developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to ensure that his/her billing practices are compliant with regulations. This presentation provides an overview of the appropriate criteria for "incident to", shared, critical care, transitional care codes, and prolonged care codes in addition to Medicare's new Quality Payment Program.

9:15 am-10:30 am Diagnostic Testing in Acute Care: What, When, and Are You Sure?

Diagnostic Testing in Acute Care:
What, When, and Are You Sure?


Diagnostic tests help clinicians appraise and revise disease probability for their patients. These tests should be ordered to answer specific questions. In this era of cost-effective health care, NPs need to be aware of the sensitivity and specificity of each test, as well as the associated appropriate use criteria. Information will be provided on radiographic imaging, nuclear imaging, cardiovascular testing, ultrasound imaging, among others, to maximize the practitioner’s ability to successfully order and interpret the most useful diagnostic tests for their acute care patients.

Sepsis Across the Acute Care Spectrum: Are You Up-to-Date?


Patients who develop sepsis continue to have high morbidity and mortality. As such, early recognition and intervention is paramount to improving patient outcomes. During this session, the underlying pathophysiology of sepsis will be reviewed to better recognize expected early signs and symptoms. The latest, new definitions within the context of sepsis will be discussed, including how these better reflect patient presentations. In addition, fluid management, antimicrobials, vasopressors, and monitoring options will be explored to allow the practitioner to formulate a most up-to-date, evidence-based plan of care.

Closing Address: Nurse Practitioners in Acute Care: Where We Started, How We’ve Grown, and Vital Stats to Carry Home!


Acute care nurse practitioner (ACNP) roles and opportunities for practice have expanded tremendously since the first national certification became available in late 1995. Currently, more than 10,000 ACNPs are nationally certified. Practice settings continue to evolve and role expansion is ongoing due to the complex care needs of patients in acute, subacute, and critical care settings. Ensuring ACNP career success has become a priority to ensure that new roles are formulated to promote career development and optimal scope of practice. This session will present an overview of changes to the ACNP role in the context of the national landscape. Implications for ACNP practice, education, policy, and research will also be highlighted.

Exhibitor and Sponsorship Information

Where do Nurse Practitioners in Acute Care (NPAC) practice?

NPAC attendees include acute care, adult-gerontology acute care, family, adult-gerontology primary care, and emergency nurse practitioner (NP) providers. Unlike the emphasis of primary care NPs, acute and adult-gerontology acute care NPs provide advanced care to meet the needs of patients with complex acute, critical, and chronic health conditions. These specialized NPs practice in any setting in which patient care requirements include complex monitoring and therapies, high-intensity nursing interventions within the range of high-acuity care. While most assess, diagnose, and treat patients in acute hospital based settings, the scope of practice is vast including intensive care, sub-acute care, emergency care, ambulatory and home care, urgent care, and rehabilitative facilities.

Conference Highlights

Being an exhibitor at NPAC will allow you to showcase the best of your company’s products to a diverse group of NPs from all over the country. You will have the exclusive opportunity to network with over 1000 NPs who are expected to attend. This is a perfect opportunity to promote the latest technologies, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, career opportunities, and other products in today’s market!
