2023 CMSA ANNUAL CONFERENCE & EXPO
Take a look at these conference highlights:
OPENING KEYNOTE: KAI KIGHT
“Compose Your World”
As a classical violinist turned innovative composer, Kai Kight uses music as a metaphor to inspire individuals and organizations across the world to compose paths of imagination and fulfillment. Kai is on a mission to spark a global mindset shift in which ingenuity is the norm and not the exception.
DAY 2 KEYNOTE: BRUCE BERGER, PhD
“Living With Your Eyes Open: Recognizing and Addressing Self Deception”
To provide patient-centered care, we first have to see the patient as a person with wants, needs, concerns, values and understandings of their own health that may be different from ours. Yet, we know from health disparities research that sometimes we see patients (and others in our life) as objects and not people. Why does this happen, and how can we maintain a patient-centered approach more often? Find out by walking through some common scenarios of self-deception and objectification in practice and everyday life and learn how to prevent them more often.
CLOSING KEYNOTE: JEAN WATSON, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN, LL (AAN)
“Humanization of Health Care: Philosophy & Practice of Human Caring /Healing/ Health”
Internationally renowned, Dr. Jean Watson is an American nurse theorist and nursing professor who is best known for her theory of human caring. She is the author of numerous texts, including Nursing: The Philosophy and Science of Caring.
