As clinicians we are generally not comfortable asking patients about their sexuality. And, they are not comfortable asking us, BUT they want us to ask! The National Women's Health Resource Center and Association of Reproductive Health Professionals commissioned a survey, "Sex and a Healthier You", to help healthcare providers address this issue with patients. Respondents were asked how important sexual health was to overall health; 81% stated it was important. Issues caused negative impacts on romantic relationships (44%), self-esteem (43%), mental health (42%), stress/anxiety (66%), and affected sleep (28%) and weight (25%). However, only 1:5 said they sought help from healthcare providers for sexual health concerns. These results indicate the need to address prevalence of sexual dysfunction. We are presenting this workshop to help clinicians understand the importance of discussing sexual health concerns with patients and to provide accurate, clinically-relevant/ evidenced-based information on sexual health conditions, management options and resources. Registrants must attend both Part 1 and Part 2. Part 2 continued in 19.1.048

Therapeutic Areas:
Neurology, Pharmacology
Speaker(s):
Nancy Denke, DNP, ACNP-BC, FNP-BC, FAEN, CEN, CCRN

Although most providers can provide a robust differential diagnosis of the causes of ST elevation, few are facetious in identifying all of the various stroke syndromes, and even fewer are familiar with the anatomical correlates of each neuroimaging. The predominant theme we must remember is: Strokes are not all the same! The ability to distinguish between the different types of stroke is important. Evidence based recommendations and guidelines assist providers in formulating a diagnosis while directing medical, surgical and interventional approaches in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke. Secondary prevention and complication management must also be understood to prevent further thromboembolic events and reduce the risk of recurrent strokes.

19.2.035 The PCPs Role in the AHA 2020 Impact Goal for Cardiovascular Health

CE Hours: 1
Therapeutic Areas:
Cardiovascular, Primary Care
Speaker(s):
Annette Jakubisin-Konicki, PhD, ANP-BC, FNP-BC, FAANP

National initiatives call for raising awareness and sustaining engagement in heart healthy lifestyles. Guided by the Care Modela framework for producing healthy communities and continued health promotional behaviors, primary care providers (PCP) can embrace the American Heart Association’s Impact Goal and concept of cardiovascular health (CVH). PCPs are in a key position through both primordial and primary prevention to raise awareness of risks for cardiovascular disease (CVD); raise CVH awareness, and increase knowledge of integrative evidence based activities that promote and support a culture of heart health through avoidance of development or reduction of cardiovascular risk factors (CVRF). Moving beyond integrative medicine to integrative health allows the PCP to address the full array of health determinants including behavioral, environmental and social factors3. Prevention outcomes do not occur in isolation and must be considered in the broader context of sustainable, wide-spread health improvements across the lifespan.

Approximately 3.42 million ED visits during 2001-2012 for head injuries. The rates significantly increased in both males and females regardless of age. Every year males had about twice the rates for sports and recreation related traumatic brain injury compared to females. Approximately 70% were reported among persons aged 0 to 19 years. The Institute of Medicine and National Research Council reports the sequelae of concussions may include cognitive, affective, and behavioral changes. CDC analyzed data from the 2017 national Youth Risk Behavior Survey. The results demonstrate that there is a need to foster a culture of safety in which concussion prevention and management is addressed. Need to educate students, parents, coaches, and health care providers regarding the risk for concussion and identify programs, policies, and practice to prevent concussions. In 2017, CDC included a question about concussions on the national Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS).

19.2.039 Low Back Pain: Standardizing Primary Care Practice to Eliminate Unnecessary Radiological Imaging in Military Treatment Facilities

Speaker(s):
COL Edward E. Yackel, DNP, FNP-C, FAANP, U.S. Army

Low Back Pain (LBP) is a common primary care diagnosis in the United States. Twenty-five percent of adults reported LBP in the last three months of 2012 with women being more likely to report LBP (29.6% vs. 25.4%) than men. Estimated healthcare spending related to LBP in 2013 was $87.6 billion dollars. Healthcare providers must know the appropriate management of patients with non-radiating LBP to reduce healthcare costs as well as limit exposure to radiation from inappropriate imaging studies. The Military Healthcare System (MHS) measures provider performance and population health using the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS). Analysis of data across the MHS revealed opportunities to improve performance on the LBP HEDIS metric and patient outcomes. This presentation will elucidate the multidisciplinary process that was employed to identify drivers of poor performance and the solutions created to improve clinical care.

Content Level: Competent
CE Hours: 1
Therapeutic Areas:
Cardiovascular, Gerontology
Speaker(s):
Irina Benenson, DNP, FNP-C; Molly Bradshaw, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, WHNP-BC

Hypertension, in particular isolated systolic hypertension, is a common problem in adults aged 65 and older, reaching a prevalence of 70%. Hypertension is a leading cause of preventable mortality, and a major contributor of premature disability and institutionalization. The treatment of HTN in older adults is complicated by a high comorbidity burden, polypharmacy and frailty. Despite these challenges, blood pressure reduction has shown to lower the risk of cardiovascular events and death in older adults. Compared to moderate BP reduction, intensive BP lowering is associated with incrementally greater benefits in some patients but also elevates the risk of side effects, especially orthostatic hypotension. The attained BP reduction, and not the particular drug class, is the primary determinant of treatment outcomes. Decisions regarding intensity of BP lowering and choice of antihypertensive medications should be made from the life-course perspective, considering patient comorbidities, functional status and quality of life of older adults.

19.2.049 Take a Deep Breath into Asthma: Step Approach & Action Plan

Speaker(s):
Teresa Hamill, DNP, FNP-BC

A large percentage of pregnancies are unplanned. NPs should provide preconception care to all women of childbearing age. Preconception care in family practice could decrease preterm births, low birthweight infants, and unplanned pregnancy. Preconception care includes: conception planning, contraception, lifestyle practices, and the decrease of at-risk behaviors. Important aspects the NP should address include chronic medical conditions, immunization history, medications, nutrition, family history, high-risk behaviors, environmental exposures, and partner violence. The use of a questionnaire is an excellent method of collecting this information. Barriers to preconception care have been identified as time constraints, patient numbers, access to care, reimbursement and little to no training of health care providers. Primary care providers are in a good position to really have a positive impact on pregnancy outcomes by providing preconception care to both men and women at every visit.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune condition which may be expressed in many ways, ranging from mild musculoskeletal symptoms to life-threatening renal nephritis. Because the disease is so heterogeneous, diagnostic uncertainty and delay is common. Once diagnosed, treatments have been shown to improve outcomes and survival. However, many treatments pose serious risks or may be prohibitively expensive leading to high rates of discontinuation and subsequent disease flares. In this presentation, I will review lupus manifestations, diagnostic tools, disease monitoring, self-care strategies to prevent flares, health maintenance and primary care focused issues related to treating this population of patients.

The Medicare Access and Chip Reauthorization Act (MACRA) calls for a foundational shift in Medicare reimbursement from a fee for service (quantity) based model toward on which incentives and rewards high quality, high value care. NPs are uniquely qualified to succeed in these models without any sacrifice to the personalized care they deliver. However, they generally lack the knowledge and resources necessary to structure their practices to take advantage of these opportunities. It’s a new world! Imagine taking your quality expertise and using value-based payment incentives to sustain—or start-- your own practice. Learn how to position yourself to maximize your revenue stream to build a successful, sustainable practice, and discuss the templates emerging for what sustainable NP-owned practices look like—with and without reliance on health insurers. NPs are hard-wired to a secret sauce that makes the transition worth the effort. Join us to find out why.

The opioid epidemic in America has reaped devastation to our society over the past twenty years affecting individuals, families, and communities. A perfect storm of aggressive marketing, availability of drugs, and inappropriate prescribing has led to a nation of addiction. This opioid crisis has caused disturbing rises in morbidity and mortality with drug overdose deaths now exceeding the number of deaths caused by motor vehicle accidents. HIV and Hepatitis C infections are now rising due to intravenous drug use as opioid dependent patients turn to heroin and families are being torn apart by addiction. The economic burden associated with this crisis for health care, substance abuse treatment, and criminal justice is estimated to be $78.5 billion. We would like to provide an historical account of how the opioid epidemic came to be as well as offer interventions nurse practitioners might utilize to combat the opioid crisis.

Speaker(s):

Regulators continue to focus attention on opioid prescribers as a source of uncontrolled drug access and frequent over-prescribing. Prescribers often lack sufficient evidence that they apply the current national safe opioid prescribing standards in practice. NPs are identified as underprepared and inexperienced in safe prescribing practices. Increasing full practice authority environments prompt law enforcement and others to investigate NPs and report prescribing issues and problem outcomes to Boards of Nursing. Subsequent investigation can lead to discipline because NPs commonly fail to show evidence that they meet standards. This presentation discusses how to evidence compliance with standards, implement guidelines, and use documentation of pain specific assessments and tools to guide interventions. It also discusses appropriate responses when NPs become the subject of an investigation. A presentation outcome is an understanding of how to protect NP practice and the public when prescribing opioids.

19.2.069 Screening and Interventions for Substance Use & Alcohol Use Disorder: Current State of the Science

In 2016 in the United States, 12.7 million people aged 12 and older had an alcohol use disorder and 5.1 million had an illicit drug use disorder. An additional 2.3 million people had both an alcohol and illicit drug use disorder. At least 115 people die daily of an opioid overdose in the United States. While the focus of media attention has been on the escalating number of deaths secondary to opioids, alcohol use disorder remains the most significant substance use disorder and contributes to morbidity and mortality. Nurse practitioners can help reduce the morbidity and mortality related to substance use disorders through screening, brief interventions and referrals for treatment. In this presentation Drs Broglio and Savage will discuss strategies to incorporate brief screening tools and interventions and referral for treatment into ambulatory care practices. The presentation will also discuss strategies for providing care for those patients in recovery programs.

Type: General Session
CE Hours: 1
Speaker(s):
Elizabeth Smart

Where There's Hope: Healing, Moving Forward and Never Giving Up

The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. At the tender age of 14, just before celebrating her middle school graduation, Elizabeth went to sleep in her family home just as she had always done. Awakened hours later to a knife held roughly against her throat, she was taken from her home and family and held captive for nine long months.

In her captivating message, Elizabeth shares her incredible story of perseverance in the face of unimaginable adversity. Her speech not only tells her personal story but also discusses topics such as overcoming extreme adversity, the importance and process of recovery and not allowing your past to dictate your life's future. Elizabeth knows that there is nothing more important than having hope in a difficult situation.

Having lived through an extreme circumstance as a young teenager, Elizabeth gives great insight and hope to all. She has since gone on to become a child safety activist and skillful advocate for missing persons. Together with her father, Ed Smart, she urged lawmakers to support sexual predator legislation and the AMBER Alert system. In February 2014, Elizabeth testified before the Utah State House of Representatives in favor of H.B. 286, which created curricula for use in Utah schools to provide training on child sexual abuse prevention. In addition, she and other abduction survivors worked with the Department of Justice to create a survivors’ guide, “You're Not Alone: The Journey From Abduction to Empowerment,” meant to encourage children who have gone through similar experiences not to give up but to know that there is hope for a rewarding life.

“My Story,” a memoir of Elizabeth’s experience written with Chris Stewart, was included on The New York Times Best Sellers list in 2013. The book details both the kidnapping and the formation of the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, which Elizabeth founded to promote awareness about abduction and end victimization through prevention, recovery and advocacy. Her follow-up memoir, “Where There’s Hope: Healing, Moving Forward and Never Giving Up,” explores what it takes to overcome trauma, find the strength to move on and reclaim one’s life.

Elizabeth is an acclaimed speaker, as her story of recovery continues to motivate parents, law enforcement and leaders worldwide to focus on children’s safety.

19.2.176 AEDs: Epileptic & Non-Epileptic Uses in Primary Care

Time: 4:15 PM - 5:15 PM (Wednesday, 6/19)
Type: Concurrent Presentation
Content Level: Competent
CE Hours: 1
Therapeutic Areas:
Neurology, Pain Management, Pharmacology, Primary Care
Speaker(s):
Kathy Baldridge, DNP, FNP-BC, FAANP

This presentation will discus the pharmacology and pharmacokinetics of antiepileptic drugs. While AEDs, or anticonvulsant medications, are primary used for the treatment of epilepsy, they may also have a place in the treatment of non-epilepsy related diseases including neuropathic pain, bipolar affective disorder and migraine prophylaxis. Surveys have revealed that primary care providers prescribe the majority of anti-epileptic drugs for non-epilepsy related physical conditions. Due to the increasing focus on opioid use disorders, the number of prescriptions for AEDs to manage pain will likely increase. Additionally, primary care providers have a shared role with the specialist in the care of the patient with epilepsy and psychological conditions that are treated with antiepileptic drugs sometimes assuming the role of prescriber. It is important that the prescribers be clinically competent in the use and potential complications of antiepileptic drugs in the primary care setting.

Speaker(s):
Laurie Connors, DNP, APNG, FNP-BC, AGN-BC, AOCNP

Nurse practitioners need to understand the applications of genetic/genomics, epigenetics and data science in clinical care in order to provide personalized healthcare. The goal of the presentation is to review the genetic basis of disease and hereditary cancer syndromes with a focus on hereditary breast and ovarian cancer and colorectal cancer syndromes. The lecture will identify and explain genetic testing techniques with next generation sequencing and tumor profiling. Clinical applications of personalized oncology care such as mismatch repair deficiency predicting response of tumors to PD-1 blockade and PARP inhibitors for ovarian cancer patients with BRCA mutations will be discussed. The ethical, legal, social implication associated with genetic testing and availability via direct-to-consumer testing will be addressed. The presentation will conclude with a discussion regarding the essential genetic/genomic competencies expected of graduate nurses and professional opportunities in genetics for nurse practitioners. Come along for a ride in clinical cancer genetics.

19.2.178 Controversies in Screening Student Athletes for Sudden Cardiac Death: Diagnosis, Management & Return to Play

Time: 4:15 PM - 5:15 PM (Wednesday, 6/19)
Type: Concurrent Presentation
Content Level: Proficient
CE Hours: 1
Therapeutic Areas:
Adolescent Health, Cardiovascular, Pediatric, Primary Care
Speaker(s):
Anne Derouin, DNP, APRN, CPNP, PMHS, FAANP

While cardiovascular screening for athletes at all levels of performance in the United States includes a careful family history and physical examination, young athletes continue to experience sudden cardiac death (SCD) during athletic events. Given that current evidence has failed to demonstrate a mortality difference in screening with and without an EKG, there has been much debate over best practices for athlete screening. International guidelines differ in approach and recommendations, and the event of a young athlete’s unexpected death is always tragic. In this presentation, we will discuss the pathophysiology of the major causes of SCD. The risks, prevalence and work-up of the most common causes of SCD will be reviewed along with the most updated guidelines for screening and return to play.

19.2.179 Too Much of a Good Thing: Neurobiology, Genetics & Substance Abuse

Speaker(s):
Roseann Velez, DNP, CRNP, FNP-BC, FAANP

Individual decision making is critical to treat Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs). The standard of care for treating MRSA SSTIs includes knowledge of clinical practice guidelines (CPGs), which are systematically developed statements to assist NPs and patients in choosing decision-making strategies about appropriate health care for specific clinical circumstances. CPGs should assist NPs to make educated, evidence-based decisions but should not obstruct NPs from treating individual patients according to their unique needs and goals. Inappropriate or overprescribing of antibiotics can have serious consequences, with the potential for life threatening effects on patient care. Misdiagnosing MRSA SSTIs increases NPs’ risk of legal liability for negligent care. Significant legal issues for NPs include a lack of diagnosis and performing procedures without education or certification. Avoiding legal issues is possible by maintaining the standard of care for patient populations and performing care consistent with education/certification.

19.3.056 Is It Routine, Urgent or Emergent? Referral to Emergency Medicine

Speaker(s):
Melissa Kalensky, DNP, FNP-BC, CNE

Overutilization of the emergency department for evaluation of nonemergent complaints is a huge driver of health care costs in the United States and may adversely impact access to care for patients with potentially life-threatening pathology. Geographic location, the availability of clinical resources, and patient access to insurance may impact a clinician’s decision to make a referral to emergency medicine. Geriatric patients in particular require accurate and expedient evaluation, as these patients often present with a complex medical history, may be frail and experience a reduced cardiopulmonary reserve, putting them at increased risk for acutely emergent pathology. Review of common outpatient complaints that may or may not warrant an emergent workup, with discussion of red flags requiring immediate referral, as well as discussion of what information should be communicated with emergency room care providers will help outpatient providers reduce overreferral and avoid preventable mortality.

Although immunizations are available for many viral conditions, it remains the responsibility of the clinician to recognize and treat patients who present with viral exanthems. This now is more challenging because the majority of our population is immunized against many of these rashes, therefore, they are not as prevalent as they once were. Additionally, not all viral lesions have vaccines available. While it is important to identify and treat all rashes, viral exanthems should be included in the differential diagnosis.

This presentation will review the gas laws applicable to SCUBA diving and will provide an overview of the physiologic effects of pressure on the human body. We will discuss how immersion affects the cardiovascular system and the combined effects of disease process on the body’s ability to compensate. We will discuss the effects of the density of air under pressure on the pulmonary system and the potential complications of air trapping and its potentially devastating effects. The presentation will raise awareness of the partial pressures of various gasses used for SCUBA diving and their effects on the neurologic system, as well as neurologic risks of diving. We will address one of the most common endocrine disorders, diabetes, and the risks associated with diving. We will also discuss the differences in medical requirements as they apply to the various applications for diving including military, commercial, scientific and recreational diving. Most providers have very limited exposure to sub-aquatic medicine and are not aware of the risks for their patients. The Recreational SCUBA Training Council (RSTC) requires diver candidates to be cleared by a provider if they have any positive responses to their medical history questionnaire. A basic knowledge of the physiologic effects of immersion and breathing compressed gas can help the NP make safer assessment of the patient and the risks.

About 25.3 million U.S. adults had pain every day for the previous 3 months, while nearly 40 million adults had severe pain. Individuals with severe pain had worse health, utilized more health care, and had more disability than those with less severe pain. Pain can affect quality of life and productivity, and it may be accompanied by difficulty in moving around, disturbed sleep, anxiety, depression, and other problems. Many chronic pain sufferers rely on opioids to manage their pain. Subsequently, the opioid addiction crisis has been declared a national public health emergency. Healthcare providers of all types have been called to address the issue. A growing body of evidence suggests that complementary approaches, such as acupuncture, hypnosis, massage, spinal manipulation, and yoga, may be useful to manage painful conditions. In this presentation, the evidence for these modalities will be presented and mind-body techniques to use with patients will be demonstrated.

Rheumatic diseases including Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Sjogren’s syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, dermatomyositis and scleroderma all have higher prevalence in women and at times present as overlap syndromes. Physical examination findings and laboratory data help to distinguish diagnosis. Classification of diseases is needed to determine the course of treatment. As science behind the pathogenesis of the disease evolves, crossroads have been seen in the etiology of diseases. Recognition and understanding of patients with rheumatic disease helps the nurse practitioner in the care of patients with currently available treatments and referral to specialist to advance future treatments.

Vector-borne diseases, whether known or emerging, in the U.S. and elsewhere can be confounding and complex. Is the patient's condition associated with a tick or mosquito bite? Is the patient in a high risk area for VBDs or have they traveled to one? Dealing with patients and their medical status upon presentation requires all nurse practitioners to know virtually everything about every symptom and condition. Nurse practitioners often are the first to see patients with vector-borne diseases and the ability to correctly diagnose and treat them can be vital to the health and well-being of these patients. This presentation will assist in proper diagnosis, treatment and patient management.

Speaker(s):
Anthony M. Angelow, PhD, CRNP, ACNPC, AGACNP-BC

Traumatically injured patients are more than just fractures, hypovolemic shock and intracranial bleeds. While these life-threatening injuries usually take priority, an astute provider must also consider all the medical issues which may have caused or complicate a traumatic injury. Failure to take a holistic approach to trauma patients can result in poor patient outcomes, further injury and long-term complications. This presentation will analyze complex clinical trauma case studies to evaluate both the evidence-based surgical and medical care required to treat these patients from a holistic perspective. The patients presented in these cases represent traumatically injured patients with complex medical comorbidities, develop medical co-morbidities during their trauma care, or had an undiagnosed medical comorbidity which was the initial cause of the traumatic injury itself. This presentation will provide the nurse practitioner with the ability to analyze, implement, and evaluate evidence-based surgical and medical management strategies for the trauma patient population. In addition, this presentation will discuss a holistic approach to caring for this patient population.

This presentation will provide the participant with knowledge necessary for the evidence-based prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of venous thromboembolic disease (VTE) in the acute and critical care environment. Pharmacological management will constitute a large proportion of the session. Acute vs. chronic management strategy options will be described as pertinent to different patient populations. A heavy emphasis on evidence-based practice (EBP) and clinical application will be the foundation for this presentation. The specific VTE diagnoses of focus will be deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. 

NPs in acute and critical care often care for patients at risk for VTE disease. VTE disease can result in significant patient morbidity and mortality, and a high suspicion for VTE should prevail in acutely ill patients. Significant progress has been made in the diagnosis and treatment of VTE disease and new pharmacological agents are available for prevention and/or treatment. NPs should be up-to-date on the latest evidence on this common clinical problem.

19.3.097 Documentation & Coding: Navigating the Hairpin Turns

Speaker(s):
Lynn Rapsilber, DNP, APRN, ANP-BC, FAANP

Most nurse practitioners receive little training as to the business side of NP practice. Any education on documentation and coding is limited with the expectation of on the job training. Most practices are not providing this education. Any NP who master the process of documentation and coding for services brings value to a practice. Revenue stream and reimbursement is changing. This presentation will provide the tools every NP will need to successfully document and code for services rendered. Learn about special situations which enhance a revenue stream. Understand "incident to" billing and potential liabilities associated with this billing practice. The NP who masters this process will maintain fiscal viability to a practice.

Speaker(s):
Courtney J. Pitts, DNP, MPH, FNP-BC

The purpose of this presentation is to disseminate current up-to-date information for clinical consideration among nurse practitioners (NPs) who may encounter individuals with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In the most recent publication of primary care guidelines, expanded recommendations were provided on the evaluation and follow-up of individuals with HIV which included updates on preventative health screenings and recommended vaccinations. Additionally, the emergence and use of newer antiretroviral medications with better safety profiles have resulted in the need for new clinical considerations when caring for an individual with HIV. This presentation will address age-appropriate preventative screenings, necessary vaccinations/immunizations, new available HIV medications, and HIV drug interactions with commonly prescribed medications that need to be considered when caring for a patient with HIV outside of the HIV clinical setting. Information presented in this presentation will increase NP knowledge on the most recent evidence addressing primary care within this population. NPs can use this information to educate NP students, whether in the classroom or clinical settings, so that future NPs are equipped with a foundational knowledge of caring for an individual with HIV. Only through this knowledge will NPs be effective in positively influencing health outcomes and overall quality of life of this population.

You’ve mastered the clinical content to be a skilled and effective nurse practitioner. However, when it comes to understanding the business of healthcare, you find yourself under-prepared to navigate the waters. You’re not alone! In today’s healthcare environment, providers are expected to care for patients but are also measured against productivity standards and profit margin. Nurse practitioners often find themselves inadequately prepared to navigate the business side of healthcare. There is an abundance of proof that nurse practitioners provide quality care, often to the most under-served populations. This presentation will provide an explanation of fundamental business concepts for practicing clinicians in hospital-owned practices and service lines. The information will be translatable to a variety of settings. These concepts will be illustrated with real world examples that can be adapted to an individual's own clinical practice setting.

In today’s healthcare environment, correctly billing for your services adds an important dimension to the nurse practitioner’s practice. The NP should be well versed with the regulations developed in 2002 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in order to correctly bill and avoid fraud. As a result of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act 2015 (MACRA) implementation, Medicare reimbursement has markedly changed. The Hospital Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) concept developed by CMS will be discussed. The goal is to pay for value and better care (CMS, 2016). This change will have two paths: Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and the Alternative Payment Models (APMs). These proposals are still evolving and may be subject to change depending on legislation being developed. This presentation’s format will be interactive since participants benefit from discussion of practices around the country.

Nurse practitioners play a major role in the management of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) across the lifespan and in various settings. Diabetes is prevalent and costly thus requiring a battery of resources including behavior modification strategies, medical nutrition therapy and pharmaceutical therapies. An individualized patient-centric approach within the chronic care model focusing on adoption of diabetes self-management strategies to reach glycemic goals is the patient aim. This presentation will focus on management of the T2DM patient with an emphasis on current pharmacological management updates. After a review of the multiple complex pathophysiological abnormalities of T2DM, various medication options will be explored with case application. The value of this presentation will be to explore the “sea of options” and to determine the best therapeutic approach for individual patients. The goal of this presentation is to advance T2DM therapy with confidence since getting to goal can be difficult.

Anxiety is a common presenting chief complaint within primary care and often prompts urgent care visits. Providers are often challenged to prescribe the best evidence based treatment for acute and chronic anxiety as patients often request benzodiazepines by name. Currently, one in twenty Americans fills a benzodiazepine prescription yearly. Prolonged use of benzodiazepines is associated with tolerance and dependence which can result in physical and psychological withdrawal with discontinuation. This presentation will review anxiety screening tools and DSM V diagnostic criteria, with a review of evidence based prescribing practices for benzodiazepines. First line treatments options for anxiety will be reviewed, focusing on alternative pharmacotherapy options to benzodiazepines.

This presentation will review the most common psychotropic medications used to treat Geriatric patients in primary care. A great deal of geriatric psychiatric conditions are encountered in the primary care setting. Treatment challenges are great due to co-morbid medical conditions as well as pharmacokinetic changes in elders. Other issues include polypharmacy, adverse medication effects, adherence problems, and diagnostic problems. The Beers List is often used to aid clinicians in choosing appropriate medication and is a useful tool. However, often clinical judgment must be used to determine if the benefit of the medication outweighs the risk. This presentation will assist the NP in choosing medications for common conditions including Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, and Delirium. Cognitive and behavioral problems associated with dementia will also be reviewed. Case studies will be presented to assist in diagnosis and medication choice. This presentation should give the learner a better understanding of geriatric psychopharmacology.

Nurse Practitioners (NPs) have been part of the Army Medical Department for over 50 years and have been steadfast in deploying to austere environments during the past 19 years of continuous combat operations. Military NPs have provided their clinical and operational expertise by working in Combat Support Hospitals, Medical Companies, Brigade Combat Teams, Special Operation Teams, and as part of Civil Affairs Teams. Therefore, NPs need to have specific deployment skill sets and training that enhances their capabilities in the operational and austere environment. Military NPs have continued to establish their value on the battlefield and in austere environments. Creating a codified repository for military NP Individual Competency Tasks and Deployment Training is crucial for success on the battlefield.

Every day, our patients are getting more critically ill. We have developed all kinds of technology and treatment options to meet this. However, there are several basic skills that all advanced practice nurses must master to be effective in the acute care setting. We all know that shock is a killer, plain and simple. What may not be so simple is early recognition of the patient in shock and aggressive treatment once this is identified. Every minute that passes by can lead to increased organ damage and higher mortality. In this presentation, we will explore each mechanism of shock, potential etiologies, and most importantly --- what to do about it based on current evidence. Expect an interactive format with questions welcome!

This presentation will focus on the entire continuum from evidence-based research, physical activity assessment to prescription, counseling, and referral into community based physical activity resources. Less than 30% of U.S. adults meet recommended levels of aerobic and strength training. Physical inactivity contributes to chronic disease, reduced quality of life, and premature mortality. Nurse practitioners play a key role in promoting healthy lifestyle with their patients – including physical activity assessment, prescription, counseling and referral. Evidence-based tools and processes exist to support these efforts. Several U.S. healthcare systems and electronic health records have integrated and implemented the “Physical Activity Vital Sign” as a tool to systematically assess patient physical activity levels during ambulatory care visits. The American College of Sports Medicine developed the Exercise Is Medicine™ program in 2007. Since then, the program has been successfully disseminated to over 40 countries globally, and several healthcare systems in the US.

Sexual dysfunction is a broad term used to describe a variety of physical, psychological and psychosocial conditions or disorders that create difficulty for an individual or dyad during any stage of normal sexual activity. Because of its prevalence and advances in pharmacotherapy, men and their health care providers often perceive erectile dysfunction as the only relevant form of sexual dysfunction. This presentation will review the four most prevalent forms of male sexual dysfunction: erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, delayed or inhibited ejaculation and impaired libido. Emphasis will be placed on behavioral, pharmacologic and surgical management of sexual dysfunctions and their sequelae, including psychosocial distress.

19.4.047 Improving Access to Care for Veterans: The Journey to Full Practice Authority & Implementation within the Nation's Largest Integrated Healthcare System

The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is the largest integrated health care system in the United States, providing healthcare services for more than 9 million Veterans at 1,243 healthcare facilities, including 172 VA Medical Centers and 1,062 outpatient clinics. The VHA employs over 98,000 nurses, over 5,700 are nurse practitioners (NP). Transitioning full practice authority (FPA) for advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) into a system of the immense size of the VHA has been both challenging and rewarding. The 2010 Institute of Medicine (IOM) landmark report, “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health,” recommended removal of scope-of-practice barriers, which would allow APRNs to practice to the full extent of their education and training. This recommendation prompted the VHA, to propose FPA for APRNs to remove barriers including the variation in NP practice that exists across the enterprise as a result of disparate state regulations. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) amended its medical regulations to permit full practice authority (FPA) for Certified Nurse Practitioners (CNPs), Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNSs), and Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs) without regard to their individual State Practice Acts when acting within the scope of their VA employment using the rulemaking process, the final rule was published on January 13, 2017. As an integrated federal health care system, the APRN FPA regulation parallels current policies in the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Indian Health Service (IHS). The regulation increases Veterans access to healthcare by expanding the pool of qualified health care professionals who are authorized to provide primary healthcare and specialty care services to the full extent of their education, training, and certification without the clinical supervision of physicians. Implementation of FPA for APRNs allows VHA to utilize NPs to improve patient access to healthcare, especially for veterans in need of timely Primary Care services, thereby reducing the extended waiting periods veterans are facing for new patient appointments. This presentation describes the long and arduous journey of obtaining FPA within the nation's largest integrated healthcare system, an in-depth view of the 16-month implementation process and the importance of internal and external stakeholder engagement.

There is much misinformation and lack of understanding by clinicians about cannabis and cannabinoids. The discovery of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has expanded the wealth of research opportunities to the potential for manipulation of this system, and the role that marijuana use has on it. The endocannabinoid system is now recognized as an important modulator of many physiological processes. NPs are in a unique position to help identify and management patients using medicinal cannabis. An understanding of the practicality of prescribing, clinical applications and current research will allow NPs to provide safe and effective care, and counseling to patients surrounding the use of cannabinoids. This lecture will provide the audience with an understanding of the pathophysiology of the ECS, and the current research of cannabinoids for medicinal use. It will help stratify the recreational user from the medicinal user and provide strategies to keep your patient safe.

Approximately 250 direct to consumer (DTC) genetic tests are currently available to the public, but each is targeting a specific audience. Some are focused on ancestry information, others are more focused on providing information about traits, health risks, vitamin metabolism, etc. Consumers and their clinician partners need to be sure a particular DTD test is reliable, valid and accurate. DTC genetic testing companies offer people access to information that was until very recently impossible. This data can be used to educate consumers about their health risks and increase participation in personal health, but not all DTC companies provide accurate, reliable information. This presentation explores questions about how the FDA regulates DTC companies, examines good manufacturing practice, discusses laboratory regulations, explores what is known about the reliability and validity of various DTC testing platforms, and discuss differences in clinical vs. DTC genetic testing.

Supply/demand (type 2) myocardial infarction (MI) is a commonly encountered clinical challenge. MI due to either increased oxygen demand or decreased oxygen supply can be due to various etiologies. Severe anemia, respiratory failure with severe hypoxemia, hypotension or shock, and transient vasospasm may lead to decreased oxygen supply; increased oxygen demand may be related to tachyarrhythmias or severe hypertension with left ventricular hypertrophy. Elevations in troponin levels frequently occur in the absence of overt ischemic heart disease and must be evaluated appropriately. This presentation will review the available literature on the definition, classification, etiology, pathophysiology and prognosis of patients with type 2 MI. Recommendations for treatment will be presented. An understanding of these foundational concepts will help the NP with diagnosis and treatment strategies for these patients in the hospital setting.

Delirium in hospital patients is a common occurrence that puts patients at greater risk of hospital-acquired infections, longer hospital stays, increased duration of mechanical ventilation, and long-term cognitive impairment. Research has identified delirium as an independent risk factor for morbidity and mortality. Despite the known risks associated with delirium, less than one-half of all hospitals incorporate a validated delirium screening instrument into daily patient assessments. Most care providers believe they can determine whether a patient is experiencing delirium by a patient’s behavior; however, that is only partially true. Without a validated delirium screening instrument, the more common hypoactive and mixed delirium states remain undetected. This presentation will discuss identification of delirium by differentiating it from common conditions that mimic delirium, types of delirium, use of delirium mnemonics, common delirium assessments, use of delirium screening with sedation protocols, and delirium prevention and treatment in acute care settings.

LGBTQ people have found political and social advances in many countries throughout the world, however, many local and national governments still overlook the exploitation of this vulnerable populations. The limited research that is available highlights how LGBTQ youth are disproportionately affected by sex trafficking, particularly transgender individuals. Some LGBTQ youth experience rejection and abandonment from their families which places them at risk for falling prey to sex traffickers and digital exploitation when they are only searching for acceptance. Sex trafficking has taken on new forms through digital outlets to expand the exploitation of LGBTQ people. This presentation will offer Nurse Practitioners the knowledge and tools necessary to understand sex trafficking and LGBTQ people with screening methods, culturally competent assessments, and resources for this vulnerable population.

Speaker(s):
Renee Holleran, FNP-BC, PhD, CEN, FAEN

Chronic pain management overall can be difficult. It is particularly challenging in veterans. Many veterans were treated with opioids for chronic pain based on previous protocols. However, it has been found that opioids alone cannot provide chronic pain relief and as veterans get older and develop other chronic medical problems, may be dangerous. Many veterans with chronic pain also have multiple other issues that affect their pain. These include mental health issues such as depression and PTSD, substance abuse disorders and social issues such as homelessness. The VHA has been using a holistic approach to chronic pain management including medications and integrative modalities such as acupuncture and Mindfulness training. The VA Opioid Safety Initiative provides guidelines pain to safely manage patients being treated with opioids for chronic pain and identify veterans at risk for issues such as Substance Abuse Disorder (SUD); suicide or other problems. The VHA has developed and continues to work on a multidisciplinary approach to chronic pain management. This presentation provides information about the challenges related to chronic pain management in the veteran population. It also offers a model that can be applied to all populations to help patients suffering from pain.

Health Promotion/Wellness, Infectious Disease, Travel Medicine
Speaker(s):
Nancy Dirubbo, DNP, FNP, FAANP, CTH

Travel health is a relatively new health care specialty that involves the prevention of illness, diseases and injuries for international travelers. While it was first started in infectious disease departments by infectious disease specialists who realized many of the conditions they saw in returning travelers could be prevented, it belongs in primary care. NPs are especially well suited to incorporate travel health due to their expertise in health assessment, risk analysis, patient education and counseling and vaccination. Since few travelers seek advice from any provider prior to travel, it is critical to increase access to travelers for safe and healthy international travel. This is also a public health concern as many travelers can bring back infectious diseases to home communities where herd immunity may not be sufficient to prevent the domestic spread of many diseases. This discussion will help the NP to add travel health services to existing NP practices.

Healthcare acquired infections (HAIs) are frequently encountered by nurse practitioners caring for acutely and critically ill patients. These healthcare-associated infections include central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, surgical wound infections, pneumonia and Clostridium difficile. They are a major challenge to patient safety and can adversely impact morbidity, mortality, length of stay and costs. The nurse practitioner has a critical role, not only in diagnosing and managing these patients, but in assisting in efforts to prevent them from occurring. This presentation will provide an evidenced based approach to the diagnosis, management and prevention of the most common HAIs. The epidemiology, pathogenesis and microbiology of HAIs will also be reviewed.

Currently there are 22.7 million veterans, National Guard members and Reservists in communities across the country. For the Active Duty, roughly 90% live in the civilian community. Over two million TriCare beneficiaries are not eligible for health care access at a Military Treatment Facility. Also, 75 to 80 percent of veterans are seen in the civilian sector and not in a Veterans Health Administration facility. Additionally, veterans have more complex health conditions and needs than do their civilian
counterparts. Veterans, Family and Service Members are being seen by providers who provide care in systems that are easily siloed. It is imperative that Advanced Practice Nurses know how to identify the needs of this vulnerable population, provide point of service care and know where/how to coordinate services. This presentation is highly relevant because primary and specialty based NPs are caring for Veterans, Active Duty and their families in their communities. In doing so, the NPs often have to negotiate and interface with a myriad of potential payors, providers, federal and state regulations. This makes it incumbent on NPs to understand, identify and know how to interface with these multiple entities in order quality, safe and effective care for this vulnerable population.

Exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) places children at higher risk for developing both short-term and long-term negative physical and psychological health outcomes. Toxic stress is defined as the prolonged activation of stress response systems in the absence of protective relationships. Research has shown that children who have protective factors that promote resilience, defined as the ability to overcome serious hardship, do not experience negative consequences to such stress. The purpose is to share the results of a quality improvement project to raise awareness of toxic stress in early childhood and increase resilience and protective factors in children and families, implemented at a Childcare Center/Early HeadStart in New England. The implementation and evaluation processes used the Social Ecological Model (SEM) guided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) Six-Step Program Evaluation Framework. The project was funded in part by AANP 2017 Grant Award.

Insomnia has a financial cost to society, an emotional cost to patients and their families. These decrements include lost work productivity, lost family time and increases in work and home accidents causing harm. This presentation will help allow to identify a diagnosis and evidenced based treatment plan. Both pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment options will be reviewed. Nurse practitioners are the first line to identify and treat these complaints. The 2009 Sleep in America Poll reported that only 49% of respondents having a "good nights sleep" every night, 26% of respondents had one a few nights a week, while 24% get a good night of sleep only several times a month. Insomnia is often self treated, with 30% of Americans reported using a sleep aide at least a few nights a week. The use of alcohol as a sleep aide is reported by 7-13% f the population. Pharmaceutical treatments for insomnia have also increased, from #5 in 2001 to 8% in 2009 ("Sleep in America-Health and Safety,"2009) This presentation will review insomnia and sleep diagnoses, and evidenced based pharmacological therapy.

19.5.036 Reducing Diagnostic Errors in Practice: A Call to Action for Nurse Practitioners

Speaker(s):
Gene Elizabeth Harkless, DNSc, FNP-C, CNL, FAANP

In 2015, the National Academy of Medicine reported on the scale and scope of diagnostic error in the U.S. health care system. Diagnostic errors, including wrong diagnoses, missed diagnoses and delayed diagnoses are serious safety concerns. Harm can occur from preventing or delaying effective treatment and harm result from unnecessary or harmful treatment. Uncovering and preventing these “hidden” sources of harm requires nurse practitioners to understand the science of clinical reasoning and its application to clinician’s diagnostic work, recognize the need for an inter-professional solution to this challenge, and identify improvements they can make in their practice and work environment. This presentation will focus on examining the diagnostic reasoning process and its relationship to the causes and impact of diagnostic error. Strategies to minimize diagnostic error along the care continuum will be provided, with a focus on the inter-professional aspects of the problem and the solutions.

Speaker(s):
Raymond Zakhari, DNP, EdM, ANP, FNP, PMHNP, SAFE

The purpose of this presentation is to raise awareness that some men who have sex with men (MSM) will still claim heterosexual identity and sexual orientation when seeking healthcare. Therefore, men who identify themselves as gay or bisexual to health care providers do not account for a majority of the population of men who have sex with men. The failure by a male patient to identify himself as MSM (while identifying as a heterosexual) may prevent that patient from receiving the proper standard of care. This presents a problem for the medical community to address. Taking a sexual history allows the provider to understand the reason for sexual behavior despite his disclosed sexual orientation; enhances a collaborative and comprehensive approach to primary care delivery by encouraging important disclosures by the patient.

Speaker(s):
Sandra Christensen, MSN, ARNP, FNP-BC, FOMA

Many NPs recognize the importance of discussing weight with their patients yet feel unprepared to do so. Out of concern that they will make their patients uncomfortable, many avoid the topic. Research shows that patients want their clinicians to raise the topic and engage in productive discussions. They are reluctant to raise the topic out of fear that they will be blames and shamed or offered simplistic solutions that don't address the complexities they face. Given that obesity is a chronic, progressive, relapsing disease, and that treatment improves outcomes. it is imperative that NPs are skilled at discussing weight with knowledge and sensitivity. Avoidance of the topic has a negative impact on the health of those with obesity and pre-obesity. Participants will learn effective strategies to initiate and continue productive conversations about weight that can be incorporated into any practice setting.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurologically based disorder affecting approximately 11% of children between the ages of 4-17 years. The number of children with an ADHD diagnosis has increased, from 7.8% in 2003 to 9.5% in 2007 and to 11.0% in 2011. Boys (13.2%) are more likely than girls (5.6%) to be diagnosed with ADHD. The risk for comorbidity is high in children with ADHD and the presence of comorbid conditions warrants special consideration in the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with ADHD. Making an accurate diagnosis of ADHD, as well as other disorders including autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Tourette s disorder, learning disabilities, genetic disorders, anxiety, depression or obsessive compulsive disorder, requires the use of standardized instruments, knowledge of symptoms and in some cases, specialized testing. The diagnosis and treatment of ADHD as well as comorbid conditions will be reviewed, including pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic interventions.

Palliative care is patient- and family-centered care that optimizes quality of life for seriously ill patients and their families across the life span by anticipating, preventing and treating suffering. In 2017, ANA and HPNA issued a Call to Action: Nurses Lead and Transform Care. The integration of advanced practice primary palliative nursing assures that patients have access to palliative care across all settings and geography. As primary providers and members of interdisciplinary teams, NPs are natural palliative care leaders. Through advance care planning, pain and symptom management, and community resources utilization, NPs keep patients in their communities. They also can empower other nurses and colleagues to transform the care and culture of serious illness using evidenced based care. This interactive presentation will highlight primary palliative nursing skills that NPs can integrate into their practice, and offer palliative care resources.

The U.S. spends 8 billion dollars annually on HPV, which is the most common sexually transmitted infection. Fourteen million new cases are reported annually. The virus causes cervical, vaginal, vulvar and oropharyngeal cancers; anogenital and oropharyngeal warts, and men are being affected more than women. National organizations, including the American Cancer Society (ACS), recommend the nine-valent HPV vaccine for males and females ages 9-26 because it prevents 90% of HPV-related diseases. The ACS National HPV Vaccination Roundtable Toolkit is replicable and can be adapted for both military and civilian populations. At Fort Bragg, NC, the toolkit was utilized in a three-prong approach and successfully increased HPV vaccinations in adult service members ages 18-26 by 60 fold. Researchers have identified provider recommendation and patient education as the most impactful interventions to increase vaccinations. Nurse practitioners and other providers are the key to HPV vaccination and cancer prevention. HPV causes genital and oropharyngeal warts, cervical dysplasia, and anal, vulvar, vaginal, penile and oropharyngeal cancers. A nine-valent vaccine is available, safe and effective. Despite its proven efficacy, uptake in the U.S. and the U.S. military is very low. Current literature shows that the number one predictor of patients and parents choosing to vaccinate is provider recommendation. Nurse practitioners and other providers are the key to HPV vaccination and cancer prevention.

A 2018 CDC report on suicide indicated that the rates have increased in all but one state since 1999, with more than half of the states reporting a 30% or greater increase. Primary care settings are absorbing the bulk of the treatment for psychiatric disorders, like depression. However, over half the people with suicide do not have a diagnosed mental illness when they die. Confounding factors such as physical health, money and housing stresses are particularly predominant in the aging population. Longer life expectancy in the United States has not meant disease free lives. One analysis indicated that 50% of those aged 65+ years and 60% of those aged 85+ have a physical health issue that is identifiable as a suicide precipitant. This presentation will provide tools for assessment, identification and treatment of the older suicidal client as well as discuss individual and community wide interventions.

Speaker(s):
Natalie Murphy, PhD, FNP-BC; Margaret Shanks, MSN, FNP-BC, ACGNP-BC

Heart failure is a complex chronic disease process fraught with exacerbations and remissions. Due to the staggering burden of the disease, health care providers are tasked with the responsibility of identifying those at risk of exacerbation and attempting to prevent readmissions. Traditional surveillance methods have largely failed at reducing hospital admission rates. Outpatient technology has been used for some time to recognize potential exacerbations and prevent readmissions. Traditional measures, such as Telehealth prompt intervention after the development of symptoms. New technologies, both invasive and non-invasive, have been developed to identify impending remission prior to recognizable symptoms, thus, allowing proactive, early treatment. These new technologies have had varying success at the reduction of heart failure admissions. This presentation will discuss the pathophysiology of heart failure and present technologies useful along the decompensation continuum. Attendees will gain an improved understanding of the complexity of the disease and its outpatient management.

Speaker(s):
Demetra Bastas-Bratkic, DNP, MPH, FNP-BC

The management of chronic conditions in the U.S. requires new strategies to mobilize patients to be active partners in their health. As the nation moves from a fee-for-service reimbursement to a pay-for-performance model, payment will be associated with improved patient outcomes, quality and restrained cost. The concept of empowering patients to have ownership in the management of their health/disease is not new, yet the struggle continues with ways to actually enhance patient activation. Prior research has demonstrated that departures from traditional patient-clinician roles are positively correlated with higher patient activation, but success of this dynamic relies on clinician motivation for patient engagement and training. This lecture will present a series of focused strategies and vignettes designed to empower the clinician to inspire and sustain a patient’s level of activation. By promoting behavior change in clinicians, we can promote patient activation and improve the quality of life for patients.

According to the CDC, congenital anomalies are the number one cause of mortality in infants under one year of age, accounting for 20% of all infant deaths. Birth defects affect one in 33 babies born in the U.S. each year. For those anomalies which do not cause death in the first year, there are often significant health sequelae including chronic illness and permanent disability. Congenital anomalies are structural defects which occur during the prenatal period and are the result of complex multifactorial genetic and environmental influences. In many cases, the cause is unknown. Of most critical relevance, the explosion of knowledge and technology in the field of genomics has dramatically changed the lens with which APRNs diagnose and manage medical conditions. This presentation will review advanced physical assessment skills and screenings available to identify common congenital anomalies with genomic implications.

Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a viral disease affecting approximately 30% of persons in their lifetime, half of which are 60 years or older. Typically, shingles commonly presents with a painful skin rash with blisters in a localized area; however patients can present with vague symptoms such as tingling or local pain in the area, headache, fever, or lethargy. Awareness of the clinical presentation, indicated management, and prevention measures for herpes zoster is paramount for nurse practitioners working in primary and acute care settings. Additionally, counseling patients at risk and providing education on the options for vaccination is an important prevention measure as the sequelae of the disease can include debilitating postherpetic neuralgia, trigeminal nerve involvement, and iritis, among other long term effects. This presentation will highlight updates in the management and prevention of herpes zoster, highlighting implications for nurse practitioners.

Altered mental status (AMS) is one of the most common triggers for activation of a medical emergency response team (MET) or rapid response team (RRT). Unfortunately, AMS is a non-specific myriad of medical emergencies including seizure, toxicity, cardiovascular compromise, acute ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, hypercapnic or hypoxemic respiratory failure, or delirium. It is necessary for the non-neuro specialist or generalist nurse practitioner to be able to perform a focused neurological exam, to prioritize assessment and treatment in stabilizing airway, breathing, circulation and consciousness. It also is necessary to know basic and rapid initial treatment of common inpatient neurological emergencies such as seizure, acute stroke and drug-induced toxicities.

This presentation will explain the pharmacokinetic variables associated with child/adolescent development, pregnancy and the elderly. Primary care providers are apprehensive about selecting appropriate psychopharmacology therapy across the lifespan. The number of qualified mental health care professionals with prescriptive authority does not meet current demand for psychiatric services. As a result nurse practitioners and other primary care providers are forced to bridge the gap. Further fueling the apprehension associated medication management is the state of psychiatric science in which all diagnoses are made by exclusion, and the primary approach to medication selection remains trial and error.

Shoulder pain is highly prevalent within the general population, second only to lower back pain. Younger patients may experience shoulder pain as a function of shoulder instability. Shoulder pain also occurs in young patients who participate in overhead sports and those who do overhead work. As with many shoulder disorders, increasing age predisposes patients to impingement, bursitis and rotator cuff tears. Studies suggest that shoulder impingement syndrome is the most common cause of shoulder pain.

Overactive bladder (OAB) and urinary incontinence is a multi-factorial, and in severe cases, debilitating condition which can include frequency, urgency, urge incontinence, and overflow incontinence in the absence of UTIs or obstruction. Prevalence is hard to estimate based on many people not seeking treatment, but rough approximations vary from 16-40% of the population . The etiology and pathophysiology are also multifactorial, and treatment options should be targeted based on cause of the symptoms. Treatment options include lifestyle changes, medications, and advanced therapies such as neuromodulation and Botox. However, many patients have a difficult time achieving success with conservative treatments due to nonadherence to medications, decreased mobility, and inability to change lifestyle. In order to achieve optimal patient satisfaction and success and based on these challenges, it is imperative for NPs to provide education, patient-centered care and patient empowerment.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the primary cause of cervical, anogenital and head & neck cancers worldwide. Organ transplant recipients, those with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and those who take immunosuppressants are at significantly increased risk for HPV-related diseases. Improved Pap & HPV tests and HPV vaccines led to significant declines in cervical cancer in women. Applying screening guidelines for average-risk individuals to high-risk populations leads to under-diagnosis of HPV-related disease. Degree of risk varies greatly by type of immune impairment, for example, standardized incidence ratios (SIR) for anal cancer is 28.75 in HIV and 4.85 in transplant recipients; SIR for vulvar and vaginal cancer are 6.45 in HIV and 22.76 in transplant. More frequent and aggressive screening, vaccination and follow-up in immune-impaired patients is necessary. The purpose of this presentation is to review population risk, analyze screening protocols and apply evidence-based practice principles to develop individualized plans of care.

The use of antipsychotics has spread beyond the field of psychiatry to that of primary care, as newer antipsychotics have gained popularity as add on medications for some common mental illnesses. The newer antipsychotics contain the same risk for adverse events as the more traditional antipsychotics, albeit a somewhat lesser risk. Many primary care providers have had very little education on how to assess for these risks, particularly the movement disorders. This presentation will provide information on assessment and management of adverse events.
