Since its inception in early 2020, the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners’ (NAPNAP) TeamPeds Town Hall series has been bringing child health and advanced practice nursing thought leaders to the NAPNAP community to talk about important topics impacting our patients and profession.
All town halls are hosted at 8 p.m. ET on days listed. Moderators will facilitate questions and answers at the end of each presentation.
- April 22: Dr. Jessica Peck and collaborating experts will share information about the recently published Core Competencies for Human Trafficking Response in Healthcare and Behavioral Health Systems. The goal of the core competencies is to clarify the skill sets needed for HCPs to identify, respond to and serve individuals who have experienced trafficking and individuals who are at risk of trafficking with trauma-informed, culturally responsive and patient-centered principles. NAPNAP Partners for Vulnerable Youth and NAPNAP are proud to jointly sponsor this TeamPeds Town Hall. Registration is required.
- May 20: Dr. Todd Wolynn will speak about sharing clear, concise, evidence-based information on the power and importance of vaccines, especially on social media and how to prepare for negative feedback. NAPNAP’s Immunization SIG proudly sponsors this TeamPeds Town Hall. Registration is required.
