Conference Schedule


Friday, Oct. 16, 2020


101 - Mapping A Bold Vision for the Future of Nursing

Time: 9:00 - 10:15 am
Speaker(s): Monica McLemore, RN, MPH, PhD, FAAN
CE Hours (pharm): 1.25 (0)

Description:


102 - What's New in the Dermatology Medicine Cabinet?

Time: 10:45 - 11:45 am
Speaker(s): Lakshi Aldredge, MSN, ANP-BC
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0)

Description:


103 - Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth: A Commonly Associated Problem with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, but Are We Managing it Correctly?

Time: 10:45 - 11:45 am
Speaker(s): Lindsey Wismer, ANP, WHCNP
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.25)

Description: Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is a syndrome present in upwards of 60 to 70% of patients who also have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). IBS affects a relatively large portion of the population worldwide, and is the most common gastrointestinal (GI) disorder, accounting for 50% or more of GI-related office visits, and is the 7th most common complaint in the primary care setting. However, while SIBO has been a known condition since the 1960s, it is still relatively unknown within the primary care setting, and its complexities are often mismanaged, resulting in poor patient outcomes. For patients with SIBO, providers need to better understand the unique history-taking, diagnostic work-up, various treatment plans, and long-term management that is necessary to manage these patients effectively. While the symptoms are similar, the management plan for SIBO often needs to be different then what the research tells us to do for IBS. This includes utilizing a variety of acute pharmacological or herbal treatment options, dietary intervention, maintenance medications and supplements to prevent relapse, investigation and correction of underlying causes, and a wide range of resources to support various co-morbidities. When this is achieved, long term outcomes improve. This results in easing the physical, psychological and social burdens that are known to accompany SIBO, thereby increasing quality of life, and decreasing the economic cost burden that chronic issues such as SIBO bring to the health care system.


104 - Gender & Cardiovascular Disease Risk: Beyond the Binary

Time: 10:45 - 11:45 am
Speaker(s): Elizabeth Knight, PhD, DNP, FNP-C 
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0)

Description: Gender-diverse populations, including transgender people, may receive primary care from nurse practitioners. This care is not limited to sexual health, hormone treatment, and psychiatric care-- these people experience the same spectrum of health concerns as the rest of the population. This presentation will review current evidence and best practices in assessing cardiovascular disease risk as part of primary care for transgender and gender-nonconforming people.


105 - Caring for the Climate Changed: The Intersection of Health, Environment, and Policy for the Common Good

Time: 10:45 - 11:45 am
Speaker(s): Gary Laustsen, PhD, FNP-BC
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0)

Description: The influences of a changing world climate is not restricted by arbitrary political or geographic borders. Human health is substantially impacted by the state of the environment and environmental degradation has a disproportionate impact on persons with less immediate access to financial and social power. This presentation will look at proposed “upstream” actions by medical and social healthcare leaders to address the natural environment in order to turnabout health injustices and improve health for all. The health impacts of climate change, air and water quality, and toxic chemical exposure are substantiated and specific policy leadership recommendations are proposed. Recommended actions include work to build environmental health literacy and empowerment, advocacy for regulatory protection and enforcement, and environmental engagement within healthcare, educational, and social systems.


106 - Nurses and Breast Cancer: Why Us and What Can We Do?

Time: 12:15 - 1:15 pm
Speaker(s): Lee Anne Hellesto, MSN, NP-C
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0)

Description:


107 - The Painful Spine Part II: Management

Time: 12:15 - 1:15 pm
Speaker(s): Kathleen Geier, DNP, FNP-C, ONC and A.J. Benham, DNP, FNP-C, ONC
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.25)

Spine conditions are extremely prevalent and frequently are the cause of missed work. Nurse practitioners are often the first healthcare providers evaluating and treating patients with painful spines, and the majority of spine conditions resolve without surgical intervention. The Painful Spine Part II covers the management of the most commonly seen spine conditions in the primary care setting. Recognizing the “red” and “yellow” flags seen in spine conditions and knowing how to treat them is covered, with the goal of promoting confidence and knowledge of NPs who care for patients with spine conditions in primary care settings.


108 - Legal Basics for Nurse Practitioners: How to Protect Your Career

Time: 12:15 - 1:15 pm

Speaker(s): Carolyn Buppert, MSN, JD
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.25)

Nurse practitioners have more regulators and prosecutors looking over their shoulder than ever before. A nurse practitioner can get into trouble not only with the Board of Nursing and plaintiffs suing for malpractice, but with the Drug Enforcement Administration, federal and local prosecutors, and the US Office of Civil Rights. The key to protecting one’s career is prevention of legal problems.


109 - Spotting and Managing PTSD in Primary Care Settings

Time: 12:15 - 1:15 pm
Speaker(s): Sally Rothacker-Peyton, DNP, MS, PMHCNS-BC, PMHNP-BC, CCTP, CNE
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.25)

Description: Disasters and other traumatic events such as the Japan earthquake and tsunami, childhood sexual abuse, and the COVID-19 pandemic, test the very fiber of our human spirit and sense of emotional well-being. For some, the stress associated with such traumas continues to cause enduring, significant distress and interference with an individual’s ability to function. In both men and women, PTSD has been associated with comorbid medical conditions, medical symptoms, and lower self-rating of overall health. For many survivors, primary care is the entryway to treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Moreover, it is estimated 25% of adult primary care patients have PTSD, and they present to their provider more often with pain and non-specific physical symptoms rather than mental health issues (Barnes & Andrews, 2019), where providers may fail to identify the disorder. Identification of individuals with PTSD in the primary care setting could potentially lead to improve patient outcomes. It is the purpose of this offering to provide pearls to assist in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of individuals when prevention is not possible. Treatment involves tailoring interventions to the individual and will include an overview of both pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions for traumatic stress related symptoms.


110 - Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Treatment-Resistant Depression

Time: 1:45 - 2:45 pm
Speaker(s): Jonathan Horey, MD
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.21)

Description: Emerging evidence indicates that more than a third of Americans have experienced symptoms of depression and/or anxiety during the current pandemic. As patients begin or continue treatment for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), studies show 30-50% will not respond to traditional therapies like antidepressants and psychotherapy. Transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, provides a powerful option for these patients. In this session, Dr. Jonathan Horey, Chief Medical Officer at Active Recovery TMS, will share the history of this clinically-proven treatment, from the initial use in a research setting to the clinical trials and its ultimate FDA indication for MDD in 2008. Dr. Horey will cover current treatment protocols, proposed mechanisms of action and evidence for efficacy in MDD as well as other indications, both on and off label.


111 - Clinical Reasoning: An Exploration of the Complexities of Making Diagnoses and Avoiding Errors

Time: 1:45 - 2:45 pm
Speaker(s): Teresa Turnbull, DNP, FNP-C
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0)

Description: Despite the increasing sophistication of tools available to health care providers, errors in clinical reasoning remain high. Clinical reasoning is complex, multifaceted, often having little to do with diagnostic testing but rather clinicians applying their vast knowledge base to data gathered in a history and physical. Research in cognitive psychology and human systems engineering have determined that when it comes to problem-solving. Humans are creatures of habit; only when habits fail do we resort to more conscious forms of thinking or problem-solving. This discussion will explore common causes of diagnostic error, what our cognitive limitations are and how to best utilize our cognitive abilities to improve our clinical reasoning and avoid errors.


112 - Treating Hepatitis C in Primary Care

Time: 1:45 - 2:45 pm
Speaker(s): Mandi Ruscher-Haqq, FNP-C
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.33)

We will walk through case studies and research regarding the efficacy of a non-specialty provider for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C. We will evaluate successes and challenges in treating vulnerable populations in an urban FQHC with an NP and Pharmacy led team. We will identify potential barriers and considerations for optimal outcomes with direct acting antivirals.


113 - Caring for Your Gender Diverse Patients: Transgender Health for Primary Care

Time: 1:45 - 2:45 pm
Speaker(s): Allison Fox, MSN, FNP
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.41)

201 - The Parallels Between the Work of Florence Nightingale and Oregon Nurse Practitioners

Time: 9:00 - 10:15 am
Speaker(s): Susan King, MS, RN, CEN, FAAN 
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0)

Description: Florence Nightingale is the icon of the nursing profession for the actions in which she engaged . Her work to expand the role of nurses and make significant changes in health care delivery system shows many similarities to the history of Oregon Nurse Practitioners over the last 50 years. The history of both holds implications for the future of the profession.


202 - Critical Evaluation of Policy: Opportunities for Equity in Nursing Education

Time: 10:45 - 11:45 am
Speaker(s): Casey Shillam, PhD, RN
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (TBD)

203 - Ostomy Essentials for the Expanding Roles of the Nurse Practitioner

Time: 10:45 - 11:45 am
Speaker(s): Elizabeth Fedderson, MSN, FNP-C, CWON, CFCN
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.16)

Description: Primary care is a demanding specialty with NP providers increasingly called upon to be the initial point of contact for a wide variety of challenges to the health and well-being of patients (Institute of Medicine [IOM], 2010), a trend identified as a solution to the primary care crisis in America (Buerhaus, 2018). While it is accepted that cultivating a knowledge base of current resources available to the NP provider can be a source of support for practice and for promoting positive patient outcomes, keeping up with new information can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to topics patients may not feel are important enough or are comfortable with bringing up at visits. It is estimated that there are over 450K people with an ostomy in the U.S. and 120K surgeries add to that number annually (Taneja et. al., 2019). The purpose of this presentation is to update NP providers on recent study data reflecting new information describing the needs of this population and novel resources to support evidence-based, patient-focused practice, e.g., access to a certified ostomy nurse as recommended by WOCN Standards of Care (Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society [WOCN], 2018), is now possible through telemedicine. Recent data reflect multiple problems for ostomates: 76% of people with an ostomy experience leakage, 21% visit the ED and ostomy surgery is the second leading cause of hospital re-admissions, often impacting primary care patients seeking follow up care (Claessens et al., 2015). This presentation addresses potential information gaps created by increasing demands upon NPs to remain current regarding needs of ostomates as a growing segment of the population and the evolving resources designed to support both providers and patients.


204 - Pediatric Depression: It's More Than Being Blue

Time: 10:45 - 11:45 am
Speaker(s): Dawn Garzon Maaks, PhD, CPNP-PC, PMHS

208 - A Systematic Inquiry into the Health Effects of Cannabis with Implications for Practice

Time: 12:15 - 1:15 pm
Speaker(s): Jonathan H. Aebischer, DNP, FNP, PhD Student
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.25)

Description: Amid spreading legalization, use of cannabis for medicinal and/or recreational purposes is on the rise, including in Oregon. More data are becoming available pertaining to the potential health benefits and risks of cannabis; however evidence varies widely in quality, and fails to keep pace with evolving drug developments and consumption patterns. Further, quality data are poorly-disseminated to healthcare providers and consumers to help guide clinical decision-making and engage in risk reduction strategies. The purpose of this presentation is to systematically and critically appraise the available scientific evidence of the health effects of cannabis, adapted with clinical implications for healthcare providers. Determination of the quality of evidence and strength of clinical recommendations will be weighted using a standardized evidence-grading tool from the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN). This presentation and discussion will include a summary of demographics and prevalence of cannabis use and abuse state- and nation-wide; a brief overview of the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of major cannabinoids, like tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ-9-THC) and cannabidiol (CBD); the state of scientific evidence of potential therapeutic benefits; weighted evidence of possible risks of cannabis use; and implications for clinical practice and research. Following this presentation, learners will have an enhanced understanding of the state- and nation-wide demographics and contextual patterns of cannabis use; gain knowledge of the biological and psychological effects of Δ-9-THC and CBD; and demonstrate a greater ability to engage in clinical decision-making of potential therapeutic and harmful effects of cannabis use, while acknowledging the quality of current scientific evidence.


209 - Pharmacotherapy Diabetes Management

Time: 12:15 - 1:15 pm
Speaker(s): EPooja Patel, PharmD, BCACP, CDCES 
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.66)

Description: With the influx of information in chronic disease state management, many health care professionals are finding it difficult to stay updated on the latest and greatest information to help improve patient outcomes. The purpose of this session is to provide nurse practitioners with the latest evidence-based guideline recommendations to treat diabetes.


210 - An Integrative Approach to Insomnia

Time: 1:45 - 2:45 pm
Speaker(s): Rebecca Bolling, MSN, FNP-C and Kelly Birch, MS, NCC, C-IAYT
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.16)

Description: Sleep disturbances are more prevalent than previously understood and are linked to medical conditions that are endemic in our population. Diabetes, hypertension, heart failure, arrhythmias, depression, anxiety, stroke and car accidents are but a few conditions with significant sleep relevance. Forward-thinking clinicians have developed programs that include yoga, meditation, CBT-I and mindfulness-based relaxation techniques as part of treatment for people with complex sleep concerns. This session provides an overview of common sleep concerns, provides science based alternative treatment options, and offers clinical pearls that will help providers optimize their patient's sleep.


211 - Combatting Health Disparities & Inequities with Nursing Practice & Advocacy

212 - Health Coaching for Chronic Disease Management

Time: 1:45 - 2:45 pm
Speaker(s): Eva Schmidt, FNP-BC, NBC-HWC
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0)

Description: Half of all Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease. Despite current advances in screenings and the introduction of new classes of medications, the numbers continue to climb. This gives rise to the importance of introducing different approaches to the management of chronic disease risk. NP’s are perfectly poised to implement health coaching in their practice, as a promising approach to minimizing risks associated with chronic disease. Studies support that health coaching, as a specific lifestyle intervention, improves self-efficacy among patients, leading to greater patient satisfaction and engagement, resulting in improved patient outcomes and reduced healthcare spending.

Recognition, Screening & Treatment of Antipsychotic Medication Induced Movement Disorders in Primary Care – When to Treat and When to Refer?

Speaker(s): Sally Rothacker-Peyton, DNP, MS, PMHCNS-BC, PMHNP-BC, CCTP, CNE
CE Hours (pharm): 1.0 (0.75)

Description: The incidence of movement disorders as a side effect of antipsychotic medications is well documented in the literature on the treatment for schizophrenia. Recognition of involuntary movements associated with hyperkinetic movement disorders is an important diagnostic skill. There are many different clinical manifestations and many different causes of abnormal involuntary movements. A careful assessment of the clinical manifestations is helpful for identifying syndromic patterns that focus diagnostic testing on potential causes. If a cause can be identified, such as psychotropic medication induced movement disorders, etiology-based treatments may be available. Clients often present with the initial signs of a movement disorders, as part of routine health care maintenance. Flagging these symptoms can ensure timely assessment of clients and halt development or progression of the range of abnormal involuntary muscle movements individuals on antipsychotic medications might experience. It is the purpose of this educational session to review/identify the different presentations of antipsychotic induced movement disorders that present in a clinic setting. This includes screening for dystonia, akathisia, drug-induced parkinsonism, and tardive dyskinesia and exploring evidence-based treatment options, both pharmacological and non-pharmacological. Treatment involves tailoring interventions to the individual and will include when to treat and when to refer when the client is seen in primary care.
