    AAOS 2018 Annual Meeting - Call For Proposals

    The Call for Proposals for the 2018 Nursing and Allied Health Program is now open!

    Each year, NAON hosts nursing courses as part of the Nursing and Allied Health Program. As always, NAON's goal is to have 70% physician presenters, and 30% allied health professional presenters.  This is an excellent opportunity for nurses and their physicians to collaborate on a presentation as well as a chance to represent their hospitals and/or practice.

    Presentations should be 30-45 minutes in length and should cover the following topics:

    • Infection Prevention
    • Pain Management
    • Ambulatory/Outpatient Care
    • Trauma
    • Total Joint (Hip, Knee, Shoulder)
    • Nurse Navigation
    • Advanced Practice
    • Regulatory Issues (i.e. Bundled Payment)
    • Patient Outcomes
    • Spine
    • Sports Medicine
    • Osteoporosis
    • Radiographic Interpretation
    • Research in Orthopaedics
    • Pharmacology in Orthopaedics
    • Technology and Trends
    • Orthopaedic Oncology
