GLMA Nursing Summit Agenda – September 10, 2014

Join us if you can for the GLMA Nursing Summit to be held in Baltimore, Maryland on September 10, 2014!  Ifpo you cannot be there, watch the GLMA Nursing Section web site for full reports and information about the work we are doing to advance LGBTQ health in nursing and health care!  

Summit Goal and Learning Objectives:

The goal of the GLMA Nursing Summit is to bring together LGBT and ally nurses and nurse supporters to develop an action plan to improve critical LGBT issues in the nursing profession. 

Summit Learning Objectives  

  • Describe major recent accomplishments in nursing related to LGBT health.  
  • Report, evaluate, and build on progress toward a GLMA-sponsored action plan for LGBT health in nursing relating to: education and curricula, patient/clinical care, policy, research, and climate (including homophobia in the profession).  
  • Provide a forum of opportunities for mentorship, support, and networking for nurses and nursing students in the areas of research, academia, policy, and patient care.  
  • Assign leadership for fulfilling the goals of the action plan.  
  • Identify key areas for focus in strengthening nursing participation in GLMA.    

Here is the final agenda for this very important day! You can also download the agenda here.
