2017 conferences

All of the conferences will take place at the Peachtree Banquet Center in Columbia unless otherwise indicated.

Policies that apply to all conferences

Handouts

A conference syllabus will not be provided. A link to the handout will be e-mailed to each paid registrant five business days prior to the conference. MU Nursing Outreach asks all speakers to submit handouts. If there are no handouts posted, that means the speaker did not submit them by the due date. If we receive handouts after the due date, they will be posted as we get them. Some speakers bring handouts on the day of the event. Handouts will remain up at least one month after the event.

Requirements for successful completion

  • Learners must attend and be paid in full.
  • Learners must complete the online evaluation form.

Group discount

If you have three or more people registering from your organization please call our office, 573-882-0215, for group discount information.

Responsibility

If you register without paying, you are responsible for payment whether or not you attend the conference unless you cancel at least seven business days before the conference.

CE certificates

A certificate of completion is provided to all conference participants who are paid in full and complete the conference evaluation form. If you are not paid in full, your CE credit will be awarded upon payment in full.

Lost certificates may be replaced with a written request to the Nursing Outreach office for a fee of $10 per certificate. We will need your name (exact same name that you used for registering) and the date and title of the conference you attended.

Registration cancellation and substitution

We understand that circumstances may arise that require you to cancel or send a substitute. If you cancel your attendance seven or more business days before the conference, your registration fee will be refunded, less a $25 processing fee. You may send a substitute at any time. Please notify the Nursing Outreach office of any registration changes prior to the conference to facilitate the check-in process.

Please note that upon submitting your registration, you are responsible for paying the full registration fee, whether or not you actually attend the conference, unless your registration is canceled at least seven business days prior to the conference. All cancellation notices must be in writing; e-mail notification is acceptable.

Program changes and cancellations

Nursing Outreach reserves the right to make changes in content and speakers, or to cancel programs if enrollment criteria are not met or when conditions beyond our control prevail. Every effort will be made to contact each enrollee if a program is cancelled. In the event of cancellation, registration fees are automatically refunded in full. You will be notified one week prior to the activity date, and a full refund will be sent to you. The University of Missouri-Columbia will not be responsible for any losses incurred by registrants including, but not limited to, airline cancellation charges or hotel deposits.

Commercial support

When commercial support is received for an educational activity, the conference planning committee maintains complete control over the selection of content and speakers. Acceptance of commercial support does not imply approval or endorsement of any product.

Taping

Taping by attendees is not allowed at any educational activities sponsored by Nursing Outreach.

Tax deduction

Your expenditure for this activity may qualify you for a Lifetime Learning federal tax credit. Tax deduction information regarding continuing education expenses is available from the IRS or tax advisors (Treasury Regulation 1.162.5).
