Event information

Handouts

A conference syllabus will not be provided. All participants are asked to print or save their own handouts. No handouts will be provided on site. A link to the handouts will be e-mailed to each paid registrant one week prior to the conference. MU Nursing Outreach only provides the link to handouts to paid registrants of this conference. Accordingly, please do not share this link. If someone needs the link, they should call our office at 573-882-0215.

We ask 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. You may want to check for any handouts that are currently missing, prior to the conference. Some speakers bring handouts on the day of the event. Handouts will remain up at least two weeks after the event.
