<h1>Westberg Symposium 2015 - Submit a Proposal!</h1>

Our friends at the Church Health Center have just released the Call for Proposals for their 2015 Westburg Symposium. This might be an excellent opportunity to present on issues of interest to Faith Community Nurses - remember EHM is not holding a conference in 2015 due to the conflict with the Episcopal Church's General Convention!

The Westberg theme for 2015 is “Foundations and Futures: Joining in the Song of Faith Community Nursing Practice” and the event will be held a the Peabody Memphis April 9-12, 2015.  The Symposium is focused on the specialty practice of faith community nursing. The purpose is to deepen the fundamental knowledge of healing ministry and explore the newer aspects of this specialty practice and resources to offer evidence-based care. The advances in faith community nursing will also be addressed through expert panels of nursing theorists and application of research. This Westberg Symposium is expanding its learning styles - the symphony of health and wholeness continues.

If you are interested in this alternate educational opportunity, they are currently seeking proposals for workshop, poster and research based presenations that clearly relate to one of the following symposium objectives:

  • To identify means of advancing the practice and resources for faith community nursing
  • To describe techniques and methods for providing “intentional care of the spirit" (i.e., spiritual care) in nursing practice
  • To provide self-care strategies that facilitate personal and spiritual growth
  • To explore the effect of music in integration of holistic care
