Reinforce Your OHN Practice: Fundamentals, New Concepts and Skills

Join your OHN colleagues as we return to Montreat to review the fundamentals and learn new concepts and skills to reinforce our OHN practice.

Welcome back to Bill Taylor who will provide an OSHA Recordkeeping Update and Joe Tripp MD who will demonstrate Musculoskeletal Physical Assessment tech-niques. This will be an interactive session as we assess each other!

Gianna Bryan returns to share information on the Overuse of Antibiotics and Mathew Wilding will close the conference by discussing how to extend the Health-span.

We welcome Deborah Larrimore for the first time to explain Healing Touch and how it applies to our personal and professional practice.

This activity has been submitted to the American Association of Occupational Health Nurses (AAOHN ) for approval to award 10 contact hours.. AAOHN is an accredited approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
