Article

Nursing staff members at University of South Alabama Medical Center have had six papers accepted for presentation at conferences around the Southeast this fall.

A presentation on “Academia and Practice Partners: Building Leadership Capacity of Frontline Nurses” was chosen for presentation at the 2014 Sigma Theta Tau Region 8 Conference in Murfreesboro, Tenn., at the end of October.

Co-authored by College of Nursing Prof. Valorie Dearmon, MC Director of Nursing and Assistant Administrator Lisa Mestas and Nursing Prof. Ellen Buckner, the paper presents the strong partnership built between the College of Nursing and the Medical Center to provide care for a population with limited healthcare options.

In addition, nurse and burn educator Alicia Lintner has been chosen to present her paper on “Early Use of Albumin in Burn Resuscitation: A Comparative Study” at the Southern Region Burn Conference in Houston in November.

Lintner has also been invited to make a poster presentation on “Challenges of Data Entry in the Burn Registry - Need for Common Language and Education” at the same conference.

Additional presentations by Burn Center personnel include papers and posters on Integra and scar contractures, SAT/SBT protocols and management of 4th degree burns.

Mike Perry of the PT department was also invited to make a presentation on therapy protocols at the Burn Conference.
