This program began with a needs assessment distributed to Nurse Practitioners that was reviewed and translated into an event design by the planning committee. The planning committee worked with NPs to develop realistic learning objectives that NPs thought would be realistically useful in their practice.  This program will be evaluated for continuous quality improvement informing future offerings. No commercial interest was involved in the development of this program.
