Call for Nominations ANA Massachusetts Awards
Deadline January 12, 2020
AN OPPORTUNITY TO HONOR YOUR COLLEAGUES


ANA Massachusetts Awards honor the remarkable, but often unrecognized work of ANA Massachusetts members. You probably work with or know nurse colleagues whose commitment to nursing and to patient care is exemplary. Yet in the rush of today's world, there is often little time to acknowledge them and their professional contributions. ANA Massachusetts has established several awards that provide you the opportunity to recognize those nurses who have made a difference at the bedside, in the classroom, and in the practice of nursing.

Spring Conference
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Beyond the Hand Sanitizer

April 17, 2020
Waltham Woods Conference Center

The complexity and diversity associated with infectious disease continues to challenge nurses’ knowledge and skill in providing safe, competent care to patients across all settings and specialties. The purpose of this conference is to update participants regarding current and emerging trends as well as evidence-based practices in caring for patients with infectious disease that will assist in keeping patients, the environment, and themselves safe. Topics will include impact of multi-drug resistant organisms on global health, the resurgence of the EBOLA virus, Hepatitis C update, and antibiotic therapy and stewardship. At the conclusion of this conference, 80% of participants will be able to identify at least two evidence-based approaches for assessing and intervening in patients with infectious disease.
