2017 Convocation

The Broadmoor

THE BALANCE POINT:
BRINGING THE SCIENCE AND ART
OF OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE TOGETHER

March 22-26, 2017
Natalie Ann Nevins, DO, MSHPE, program chair
The Broadmoor
Colorado Springs, Colorado

The AAO’s 2017 Convocation will be dedicated to exploring the balance between the art and science of osteopathic medicine. In an era focused on evidence-based medicine, it can be challenging to find a real world balance to the practice of osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM).

The 2017 Convocation’s lectures will present cutting edge research in OMM and related topics that will have real world application to the attendees’ medical practice. Breakout sessions will provide the opportunity to learn new techniques and protocols for managing common medical conditions and somatic dysfunctions and to explore new ways to approach the visualization of anatomy.

Abstracts for 2017 poster presentation due Jan. 30

The Louisa Burns Osteopathic Research Committee (LBORC) and the National Undergraduate Fellows Association (NUFA) are calling for submissions to their annual Research Poster Presentation. Posters will be displayed in the exhibit hall on Thursday, March 23, and Friday, March 24, during the 2017 Convocation at The Broadmoor.

VA Grants Full Practice Rights to APRNs

The US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) published a final rule this week that will provide certain advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) with full practice authority within VA facilities. The rule pre-empts state scope of practice laws regulating medical care for services provided as part of an individual’s scope of employment within the VA system. The proposed rule would have allowed full independent practice for certified registered nurse anesthetists; they were removed from the final rule and their practice will remain under physician oversight.

Donate to the PAAO Raffle

The Postgraduate American Academy of Osteopathy (PAAO) needs your help! At the AAO's annual Convocation, the PAAO hosts a mixer for residents. This is an excellent opportunity for residents to network with each other and with potential employers. The raffle that is held during the mixer encourages attendance, helps break the ice and generally keeps things hopping.
