Welcome to the NP Forum

for Nursing and Allied Health!

This conference is organized by the NP Forum Committee.

The overall goal of the conference is to improve cardiac patient care. Annually, we aim to bring together a community of health professionals from various backgrounds, who are interested in cardiovascular health and provide an opportunity to learn and network with each other.

The Telehealth Site in Grande Prairie was tested in 2015 and the attendees were happy with the results and with the on site NP Forum Committee member. Telehealth is back this year, again in the Grande Prairie Provincial Health Building. The Telehealth site gets first and last dibs on questions, its own door prizes, refreshments and lunch.
