The ANA-Illinois Program Committee is seeking the best session ideas that represent Nurse Advocacy for the 2018 Professional Issues Conference.

Advocacy can be defined as using one’s position to support, protect, or speak out for the rights and interests of another.

Nurses have long claimed patient advocacy as fundamental to their practice, however, advocacy beyond the bedside is often misunderstood.

We are looking to create a learning experience that engages, challenges, and empowers nurses.

Please submit your topic ideas/ proposals that represent:
-Self Advocacy
-Patient Advocacy
-Advocacy for the Profession

Please submit your session ideas by Friday, September 7th, 2018.
