CHICAGO, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Perinatal Nursing Advisory Council and the March of Dimes invites nurses, midwives, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, health educators, lactation consultants, and the community to the March of Dimes 34th Annual Perinatal Conference February 25-27th at the Doubletree Hotel in Oak Brook, Illinois. All healthcare professionals caring for moms and babies are urged to attend.

This conference will address significant and challenging areas of current perinatal nursing practice. There will be an array of speakers and workshops that will focus on topics related to perinatal nursing as a profession today, societal concerns as they influence maternal and child health, current and future trends in perinatal care delivery, and developments in nursing research and practice.

Among the list of speakers and workshops are: Lisa Miller, CNM, JD, on "Mistakes Were Made, But by Whom? Cognitive Bias in Healthcare Decision Making"; Kathleen Rice Simpson, Ph.D., RNC, FAAN, on "Oxytocin & Magnesium Sulfate as High Alert Medications: Implications for Perinatal Patient Safety"; Terry Johnson, ARNP, RNC, MN on " Moral Distress in Perinatal-Neonatal Nursing: Feeling 'Lost' At the Bedside" and a host of others at this three-day conference. The President of The Association of Obstetrics, Women's Health, and Neonatal Nurses Kim L. Armour will present the keynote address on "The State of Healthcare for Mothers."

Continuing education credits are offered for attendance. Three days can earn up to 17 credit hours which, in accordance with next year's IL Nurse Practice Act, is almost the full amount needed for additional certification. Experienced professionals will gain further knowledge on current trends, clinical advances, societal and professional issues challenging the delivery of perinatal health care today, nursing research relevant to the comprehensive care of the childbearing family, and techniques available to identify and screen for genetic disorders.
