Special Conference Opportunities
Please participate in the nominations for several awards that are presented during the conference. These awards are very special and acknowledge those that have achieved beyond the norm in Research, Best Practices and Advocacy efforts.
The ASPHP hopes to see you there. We are a co-sponsor of the event again this year and participate in several ways:
September 7 – 10
Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center
The Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Conference that was held from April 20 – 24th was a great success. With an increase in attendance from last year and the addition of the Falls track, everyone commented that there was renewed energy and an excitement in the air. The ASPHP was one of the conference Sponsors.
The ASPHP participated in a large way this year, offering a Novice track within the Pre and Post conference settings. Our combined presentations were very well-received and we were pleased to offer those who attended a workbook that they could take with them back to their offices for practical use. Eleven of our Board members and/or CSPHPs instructed one or more presentations.
The ASPHP Annual meeting was also held on the evening of April 21st. The opening reception was great fun as many interested visitors joined us for conversation, light food and drink. Later, forty-four members assembled to hear the Annual report, meet the new Board members and thank the outgoing Board members for their contribution to our organization. It is always gratifying to meet together in a relaxed environment to share our SPHM stories, renew old acquaintances and make new friends.
We were also excited to have our own Colin Brigham receive the 2015 Advocacy Award at this year’s conference. Colin’s list of accomplishments re: SPHM is very impressive – he has been working on promoting the science and practice since the early 90’s. He is on top of all legislative activity throughout the country and will, for the second time, provide testimony on Capitol Hill in May. We are so privileged to have Colin on our Board. He is a trusted colleague and friend. Congratulations Colin!!
