MSN Alum Presents at American College of Emergency Physicians

Candice Palmisano presented her thesis work, “Beyond the Double Doors: Barriers to Family Presence at the Bedside During Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Invasive Procedures,” at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) National Conference in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay.  The ACEP16 conference focused on clinical and management tools to support the practice of emergency medicine. “Thousands of emergency medicine professionals from around the globe gather annually to attend ACEP's flagship event - the premier event in the specialty.  ACEP16 is an immersive experience that goes beyond what typical medical conferences offer. It is the single most comprehensive consortium that brings together education, networking, policy development, and new technology to one convenient location.”  Source:
