CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION

Taking place over the course of four days, our 5th Annual Conference on Challenges in Mental Healthcare for the Primary Care Provider provides practical, evidence-based care tips for treating patients with challenging psychiatric and psychosocial concerns. Designed for physicians, certified nurse midwives, nurse practitioners, physician associates, nurses, and other allied healthcare professionals who manage patients of all ages, this course emphasizes team-based problem solving. Throughout the sessions, our expert faculty will guide you and your fellow providers as you collaborate amongst yourselves and collectively practice skills and strategies for application and implementation into your practice. This educational activity aims to increase both the competence and performance of all attendees as well as contribute to your ability to work together as part of a coordinated healthcare team.

Topics for this year’s conference have been selected based on the educational needs underlying identified professional practice gaps. The gaps were derived from a variety of sources including evaluations and outcomes data from past participants, clinical expert input, Symposia Medicus’ online survey, and other medical and nursing data such as current clinical guidelines, research findings, literature reviews, and patient safety considerations.

An outstanding faculty has been assembled for this conference. Each faculty member was selected based on their individual area of expertise and ability to communicate current, evidence-based, and practical information to participants.

The conference format includes didactic and interactive lecture sessions, question and answer sessions, and case studies. Following a group of lectures, the "What Have We Learned" sessions allow attendees to ask the faculty critical and challenging questions about caring for patients during various mental healthcare situations.

CONFERENCE LOCATION

California’s wine country offers scenic countryside views, great wines, and superb restaurants. With over 450 wineries offering a variety of wines for all tastes, it’s no wonder that the Napa Valley is considered the heart of the American wine industry. Located approximately 60 miles north of San Francisco, there is much more to Napa than just its grapes! Enjoy hot-air ballooning, horseback riding, mountain biking, or casual golfing.

Find incredible discounts on your favorite brand names at the Napa Premium Outlets or visit Old Town for unique shopping. Visit the recently restored Napa Valley Opera House for headliners from jazz to country music. Although wine comes to mind when thinking of the Napa Valley, the food in this region is equally as tantalizing with world-renowned restaurants in the area such as The French Laundry, Bottega, and Morimoto. There is so much to do in this abundant valley. But if the Napa Valley isn’t enough to keep your interest, San Francisco, with Fisherman’s Wharf, Chinatown, and famous cable cars, is just an hour away; or the kid inside you will love the excitement of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom located just 20 minutes away, or Safari West wildlife preserve just 45 minutes away.

The Napa Valley Marriott Hotel combines modern convenience with traditional comfort. If you are looking for a refreshing escape, just head over to the hotel’s all new resort-style pool and courtyard. They’ll provide the towels, sunscreen, lounge chairs, and umbrellas-all you have to do is relax and enjoy every moment.

Sip on specialty cocktails or your favorite Napa Valley wines complemented by creative small bites from Little Summer’s Innovative kitchen, the hotel’s indoor/outdoor restaurant and bar. Start the day with morning yoga sessions on the pool deck, or just unwind with a cocktail on the pool patio under a gorgeous California sunset after a long day spent touring vineyards or teeing off on Napa’s famous golf courses!

Whatever your pleasure, you’ll be sure to find it in Napa, at our 5th Annual Conference on Challenges in Mental Healthcare in the Primary Care Provider.
