The PSPA invites you to attend the 47th PSPA Annual CME Conference in-person or online (virtual) as we present a hybrid conference, November 2-5, 2022, at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA.
All meeting details are being designed to provide a safe, contactless, and comfortable environment. You can be confident that the Omni William Penn Hotel will provide clean, safe, and healthy spaces for you to feel completely at ease in their hotel. Click here for What to Expect during Your Stay at the hotel. The PSPA will follow and adjust to all CDC meeting protocols that may be in existence during the conference.
The PSPA is requiring a waiver to be signed by each attendee and any guest for attendance to the conference. The waivers can be found here to review or print: attendee, guest. You will be asked to check a box to demonstrate agreement during the online registration process. If an attendee plans to bring a guest, the waiver will need to be printed from the PSPA web site, signed by the guest, and e-mailed to Susan DeSantis at firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to (724) 836-4449. All waivers must be completed prior to arriving at registration. The alternative to signing the waiver is to attend the conference virtually.
The PSPA is looking forward to seeing you in-person or virtually as we come together to obtain high-quality CME, seek new products and services, and reunite with friends and colleagues. Questions can be emailed to email@example.com.
Additional Topics of Interest
REGISTRATION BADGES WILL BE REQUIRED FOR ADMISSION TO ALL CONFERENCE EVENTS FOR IN-PERSON ATTENDEES.
CME ACCREDITATION FOR PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS
Conference organizers plan to request up to 26 hours of AAPA Category 1 CME for the clinical/professional sessions and 16 hours of AAPA Category 1 CME for the workshops, and 2 hours of AAPA Category 1 CME per forum for the Professional Development Forum and the Education Forum, from the American Academy of Physician Assistants.
The PSPA is required to verify attendee attendance at CME events per the AAPA. CME hours will be managed through the completion of surveys. Each survey requires your name and a code that will be presented during the session, forum, or workshop. CME is only available for those who have registered or paid for event. CME certificates will be sent by email after CME hours have been validated. If you are completing your CME hours virtually after the conference, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request your validated certificate.
The NCCPA and the PSPA have worked together to reduce the time and effort associated with logging your conference hours for our Fall CME Conference. NCCPA has designed a special system whereby PAs can click on a unique link in their online NCCPA personal certification record at www.nccpa.net and select the sessions they attended from a master list of sessions that PSPA supplied to NCCPA. The PA can automatically apply those sessions wherever they need them, if the hours are earned in the correct logging window. Logging will be available starting November 14, 2022.
SELF-PRINTING OF LECTURES
The PSPA receives the preliminary lecture slides or outlines from our speakers prior to the conference. The material that we receive will be online for conference registrants by October 20, 2022. Please keep in mind that speakers may make last minute changes to their presentations that would not be in the pre-conference postings. The final slides for self-printing will be made available to you beginning November 9, 2022. Slides will be available on the PSPA website until April 15, 2023, for non-PSPA member access. Please see login information in your Registration Confirmation email.
