DUBLIN, CA – June 1, 2011 – Contemporary Forums, a leading provider of continuing education (CE) for healthcare professionals, announced its annual set of summer conferences, designed for healthcare professionals to receive their required CE credits in the resort locations of Jackson Hole, WY., or Snowmass, CO. The three conferences will focus on topics of Office Gynecology, Hot Topics in Primary Care and Advanced Critical Care Nursing.
“Each summer conference was developed with nationally-known experts as Conference Chairs and speakers and delivers up to 17.5 accredited CE hours for advanced practice clinicians and nurses,” said Pam Jenkins-Wallace, MS, NP, vice president, program development for Contemporary Forums. “Clinicians always enjoy the combination of excellent CE in a setting of breath-taking natural beauty and these conference schedules allow time to enjoy outdoor activities and adventures in a family-oriented location. Over 85% of past attendees report plans to change practice based on what they learned at these conferences.”
During each three-day conference, attendees will spend time in morning CE sessions and will have the afternoons to explore the resort and surrounding environment. Each conference is fully accredited by American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC) and/or the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
