2019 NP Forum Agenda

The agenda for the 2019 NP Forum is taking shape but subject to change.

The NP Forum for Nursing and Allied Health is thanks in large part to our NP Forum Champions

Don't miss out – mark your calendars!

~ Supporting the patient through the whole journey of cardiac care by sharing new knowledge in cardiac technologies, research, and treatments of specific cardiac conditions with nurses and allied health professionals.

~ Supporting cardiac patients and their families with acute and chronic heart disease; considering their stress, suffering and quality of life issues.
