Opening General Session
Evaluating Evidence and Inspiring Change: It’s More Than Just a Phase…
Terry S. Johnson, APN NNP-BC CLEC ASPPS MN CE
Director of Education and Professional Development, Prolacta Bioscience
Every day we are confronted by the changes in knowledge, practice, delivery, products, and devices in our clinical settings. The models of change theory, or how we change, are also evolving. Terry Johnson’s opening address will invite you to look at the concept of phase change as a means to fuse emerging practice evidence with nursing’s inherent obligation to always be pivoting toward optimal clinical outcomes.
General Session II
Addressing Vaccine Hesitancy in the Age of Dr. Google
Heather Monk Bodenstab, PharmD
Clinical Pharmacy Specialist, Newborn/Infant Intensive Care Unit and Vaccine Education Center, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
With expertise in vaccine-related controversies and more than a decade of speaking with vaccine-hesitant NICU families, Dr. Monk Bodenstab knows how damaging it can be when the Internet and social media are considered more reliable resources than healthcare professionals. By discussing the evidence behind neonatal vaccine controversies and demonstrating real-life strategies and resources for speaking with hesitant families, she will provide the tools necessary to empower neonatal nurses when they are attempting to dispel vaccine-related myths on the front lines.
