Hop the Trolley for DNA's 27th Annual Conference

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Within health care, dermatology professionals play a critical role in providing quality care to their patients.

The Dermatology Nurses' Association (DNA) will offer dermatology professionals the most up-to-date evidence-based nursing practice in a variety of learning formats and the opportunity to network with colleagues both nationally and internationally during the annual conference slated for March 4-7 at the Hilton San Francisco.

New for 2009

For 2009, the DNA's knowledgeable faculty of nurses and physicians will present new hot topics and educational enhancement which is relevant to all levels of nursing expertise. Some of this year's new sessions include alternative teaching modalities and the legalities of office professional practice.

Inspirational Keynote

Greg Mortenson, best-selling author of "Three Cups of Tea," will present the keynote address on March 5. Since 1993, Mortenson has split his time between his Bozeman, Montana home and in Pakistan and Afghanistan establishing upwards of 61 schools in often volatile regions. His humanitarian effort has helped to educate more than 25,000 children, including 14,000 girls, where few education opportunities had existed before.

Stay on the Cutting-Edge of Dermatologic Practice

The 27th annual conference highlights a broad array of dermatology care issues. Dermatology professionals can delve into areas of interest by attending any of the wide-ranging education sessions. DNA's courses and speaker discussions will provide nursing contact hours, and are a great way to learn in-depth information on varying topics, including an overview of lasers in dermatology; skin cancer surgery and reconstruction; patient education in dermatology clinics; suturing tips and techniques; and an overview, trends and the latest superbugs in infectious disease and antibiotic resistance.

Attendees can earn contact hours through a variety of pre- and post- convention workshops, including the Dermatology Nursing Certification Review Course for those interested in becoming a certified dermatology nurse; the Dermatologic Surgery Core Curriculum Course; the ever-popular Nurse Practitioners Forum; Cosmetic Workshop; Advanced Cosmetic Core; Fundamentals of Phototherapy; and the Wound Care Workshop.

"DNA's annual conference provides the best -- and most cost-effective -- opportunity for dermatology nursing professionals to sharpen their skills," said DNA President Karrie Fairbrother, BSN, CDE, DNC. "This program is even more robust than in years past, and promises to be an exceptional networking and learning event for all!"

The Hilton San Francisco

Conference attendees will stay at the Hilton San Francisco, which features a heated outdoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi and is within walking distance of Chinatown, Nob Hill, shopping, dining and much more.
