Conference Description

Nurses in ambulatory care have diverse roles, serve unique groups of patients and require specialized clinical and management skills. This conference is an educational forum for those who practice in a wide variety of settings, including large and small clinics, physician offices, home health, long term care, public health, community health, occupational health, school health, college health, military health, specialty clinics, case management and other outpatient settings. Keynote addresses and a variety of pre-recorded sessions allow registrants to design a conference that meets their individual needs. Speakers include distinguished local, regional and national experts presenting on clinical assessment, nursing interventions, administrative/management issues and professional development. Conference goals are to strengthen the practice of nursing, promote innovation and create seamless systems for patients and communities. Teaching methods include lecture, discussion, case studies and collegial interchange.

Tim Cunningham, RN, DrPH, FAAN

Tim Cunningham never thought he would become a nurse. His first passion was in the performing arts—theatre, clown, dance and acrobatics. He worked as an actor for nearly a decade in various regional theatres in the U.S. and internationally. It was through those experiences that he began work with Clowns Without Borders in 2003. A small non-profit, Clowns Without Borders sends professional artists into war zones, refugee camps and other zones of crisis with the simple mission of catalyzing laughter and playfulness. Tim has performed in more than 20 countries with the clowns, he served for five years as the Executive Director of CWB and now sits on their Board of Directors. It was working in a pediatric ward in pre-earthquake Haiti that inspired Tim to study nursing. He graduated from the Clinical Nurse Leader program at the University of Virginia in 2009 and then worked an emergency/trauma nurse at the UVA Health System, Children’s National Medical Center and New York Presbyterian, Cornell. He has worked internationally as a clinician in post-earthquake Haiti; Sierra Leone, during the Ebola outbreak with the organization, Partners in Health; and most recently with Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. His work as a clown and nurse keeps bringing him back to the central question: What keeps people resilient? This question helped him complete his Doctorate of Public Health at the Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University. His dissertation focused on psychosocial support of expatriate Ebola aid workers in West Africa, with an emphasis on Narrative Medicine. In 2016 He joined the faculty at UVA with a joint appointment in the School of Nursing and Department of Drama. He also served as the Director of the Compassionate Care Initiative. Currently, Tim is the Vice President of Practice and Innovation at Emory Healthcare where he also holds an appointment as Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Nell Hodgson School of Nursing at Emory University. Tim is a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing.
