2 Australia s leading healthcare conference provider Dear Healthcare Professional, It is my pleasure to introduce the 4 th Annual Developing the Role of the Nurse Practitioner Conference. The 2014 Conference will act as an interactive meeting place for Hospital Executives, Nursing Management, Project Officers, Policy Makers and the Nurse Practitioners themselves; across Primary and Secondary Healthcare. The purpose of the conference series since its beginnings in 2011 has been to provide Health Service Management with a better understanding of how to best utilise the NP Role, and how to manage the considerable challenges of implementing the role. The 4th Annual Conference will facilitate information sharing, stimulate open discussion and offer excellent networking opportunities; allowing full evaluation of the Nurse Practitioner role within the current health environment, and a glimpse into the future of the role from a management perspective. The event will provide a well-rounded update on new standards & changes to the endorsement process and will allow for full evaluation of models of care specific to unique healthcare environments. It will offer strategies to help combat work force issues around succession planning and recruitment and will provide insight on how to attract Medicare Benefits specific to your organisation, and more importantly will deliver evidence based data in order to better support the business case for the NP role going forward. Together I hope we can address current challenges, promote understanding of the role and champion successes within the profession. I look forward to meeting you at the event, Best Wishes.
