    Topical Areas

    Five topical areas will be presented at the 2023 AANP Fall Conference. Within each topical area, registered attendees can choose from multiple sessions — or select sessions from all five topical areas to create your personalized conference experience!


    Cardiometabolic syndrome (CMS) is a widely recognized syndrome inclusive of a combination of metabolic dysfunctions, such as insulin resistance, diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension and obesity. These states have been identified as risk factors for the development of atherosclerotic disease. This series of sessions will explore the spectrum of factors — including environments, diets, lifestyles, and genetic and epigenetic factors — that may combine to cause any one of the cardiometabolic diseases. Sessions in this topical area examine current evidence, treatment modalities across the spectrum and new developments in identifying CMS, as well as the intersections between the nuances of cardiometabolic illnesses and wellness.

    Emergency, Urgent and Convenient Care

    NPs are on the front lines of health care delivery and play an increasingly important role in caring for patients who present with a variety of conditions in emergent, urgent and convenient care settings, which are among the fastest-growing clinical settings in the U.S. Demand continues to grow for health care providers with the comprehensive skills and experience needed to provide high-quality care within these fast-paced settings, support care continuity across innovative delivery models and ensure patient safety. These evidence-based sessions include valuable insights to help NPs address the needs of their patients and communities, foster resilience among health care teams and ensure optimal outcomes.


    NPs are well-positioned as leaders in the health care field, and leadership training is crucial to increase effectiveness and drive positive change in the way health care is delivered. These sessions will focus on a wide array of topics that will deepen the NP’s emotional intelligence, creativity, capacity for communication, transformational leadership skills, understanding of systems and ability to support and motivate others. At the end of the conference, attendees will receive a certificate of completion from The George Washington University (GWU) School of Nursing, which is a requirement for the AANP Executive Leadership Program.


    The pharmacology topical area emphasizes advanced concepts in pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics, with specific attention to their clinical implications. Individual sessions are designed to present the latest advances among a wide variety of contemporary clinical topics of relevance for NPs within all practice settings. Building upon the evidence-based foundation of early practice, these sessions include a higher-level analysis and application of clinical and diagnostic indicators as a foundation for managing complex patients or those who do not otherwise respond to classic, evidence-based drug regimens.

    Psychiatric-Mental Health

    Patients often view the primary care setting as more acceptable or accessible for mental health care than a specialty setting. Therefore, primary care NPs are on the front lines for the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. Research trials consistently demonstrate the effectiveness of integrated care for mental disorders; yet, primary care providers and systems are overburdened, and clinicians sometimes lack knowledge and confidence to practice to the full scope of their NP roles. This topical area provides information to improve the delivery of mental health services in primary care; likewise, it enhances and extends the skill set for the competent mental health provider.
