This year the AARC Summer Forum rolls out another great new venue and features powerful new sessions for respiratory care managers and educators. We’re back in Orlando—the vacation capital of America. Visit your favorite theme park, enjoy the onsite water park, or simply relax at the hotel spa. Regardless of your interests or tastes, there’s always something for you to do in sunny Orlando.

The AARC Summer Forum presents a new perspective for managers in 2013. You won’t want to miss the 2 new lecture/workshop symposia in View from the C-Suite, where representatives from two national consulting firms will be on hand. One addresses the preparation needed in working with consultants, and the other provides practical advice for understanding, creating and maintaining safe, high reliability cultures.

As educators, you’ll be particularly interested in CoARC’s Meet the Commission where you can learn about any new or pending changes to accreditation standards. And the NBRC will be back with results of the 2012 Job Analysis and Content Outline, and provide a comprehensive look at the new (written) combined multiple choice examination for the CRT/RRT.

Come a day early to maximize your investment with the pre-Summer Forum sessions. A new special session—“Clinical Preceptor and Inter-Rater Reliability Workshop”—offers an interactive workshop that will reinforce Practices of Effective Preceptors with emphasis on adult learning, mentoring, and evaluating learner performance. Target Audience: Educators, Managers, and Hospital-based Clinical Instructors.

In addition to sessions, take advantage of this unique opportunity to:

  • Network and share ideas with other managers, educators and AARC Corporate Partners.
  • Interact directly with Program Faculty and thought-leaders in your profession.
  • Learn of any current or pending changes with CoARC and the NBRC.
  • Discover what’s current with selected book publishers.
  • Glean best practices from colleagues who can help turn Challenges into Opportunities.

And, of course, you’ll earn up to 17.2 hours of continuing education credit (CRCE®) credits, too.
