F.A.Q. Please find questions and answers below

Why is APHON transitioning to a virtual conference experience?

The COVID-19 global pandemic has created a situation beyond APHON’s control that has made it unsafe to hold the Annual Conference as intended.

What time-zone will the conference schedule follow?

Mountain Time is the official time-zone of the 45th Annual Conference & Exhbit

What will the virtual experience be like?

We will live-stream all of the keynote & general sessions, as well as the sponsored symposia. The concurrent and paper sessions will be pre-recorded and available on the conference platform at their respective start times, in Mountain Time. The speakers will be available for Q&A in the session chat. We are also pleased to offer networking opportunities in the virtual platform, a virtual poster hall, and opportunities to meet with exhibitors.

What's Included in the Virtual Conference Registration?

Registration includes access to the live-streamed sessions during the live event dates and access to pre-recorded concurrent and paper sessions, nursing continuing education, handout materials, the virtual poster hall, and virtual networking opportunities with attendees and industry partners.

We are pleased to share those in-person and virtual attendees of the Annual Conference can earn up to 41.25 CNE contact hours*. Additionally, all attendees will have on-demand access to the educational content through December 31, 2021.

*CNE certificates will be available to print online after the conference by completing all online evaluations. Please note that evaluations will remain open until December 31, 2021. After this date, the system will not allow for any evaluations to be completed. CNE contact hours will not be awarded to attendees that fail to submit their evaluations before December 31, 2021. You should be aware of the continuing education requirements of your state board of nursing, especially for those states in which continuing education is mandatory.

Those that register by Friday, October 30, and reside in North America will receive a Conference in a Box filled with goodies related to the conference.

Will the educational sessions be available after the live event?

Yes, session recordings will be available following the live conference until December 31, 2021. Attendees can earn CNE contact hours by completing evaluations by this date.

If you have any questions regarding your conference registration or require special assistance, please contact the APHON office.

I was registered for the in-person conference, do I need to re-register for the virtual conference?

Each attendee registered for the in-person conference will be automatically transferred to the virtual conference. A refund will be issued for the difference in the registration fee. Attendees that do not wish to attend the virtual conference may send a request in writing to info@aphon.org to cancel their registration through October 1 and will be issued a full refund of the registration fee. Our normal cancellation policy will be in effect after October 1. A $100 processing fee will be charged for all cancellations requests received by October 15, 2021. No refunds will be made under any circumstances on cancellations requests received after October 15, 2021.

Cancellation & Transfer Policy

A $100 processing fee will be charged for all cancellations postmarked before October 15, 2021. No refunds will be made under any circumstances on cancellations postmarked after October 15, 2021.

APHON reserves the right to substitute faculty or cancel or reschedule sessions due to low enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances. If APHON must cancel the entire meeting, registrants will receive a full credit or refund of their paid registration fee. Unfortunately, no refunds can be made for lodging, airfare, or any other expenses related to attending the conference.

I previously transferred from the In-Person Conference to Virtual and was charged a fee.

A refund will be issued for the $10 fee that was previously assessed as part of our transfer policy.

Disclosure

All speakers and planners are required to disclose to program participants any relevant relationships, including financial interests or affiliations with a commercial company. Full disclosures will be made available to program participants by verbal or written statements before the activity. The material presented in each conference activity represents the opinion of the presenter and not necessarily the views of APHON.

Will APHON consider Salt Lake City as a host city in the future?

Absolutely. We are all disappointed that the conference cannot occur in Salt Lake City this year and we will investigate the feasibility of booking again in the future.

Will the virtual content be delivered during the same dates as the original in-person meeting dates?

We are planning to deliver live education and engagement October 27-30 with opportunities for on-demand access to education through December 31, 2021.

Will the educational sessions be available after the live event?

Yes, session recordings will be available following the live conference until December 31, 2021. Attendees can earn CNE contact hours by completing evaluations by this date.

Will you still plan to hold the Leadership Course and/or Chemo Bio Instructor Course virtually?

The Chemo/Bio Instructor course will be presented virtually this year. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the presentation content, the Leadership Course will be postponed to the 2022 Annual Conference.

I am a speaker; how will my education session/paper presentation be shared/presented?

Speakers were informed to schedule a date/time to pre-record their sessions which will be live broadcasted on the virtual platform. Presenters will have the opportunity to engage attendees in real-time using tools for Q&A. Any special session needs such as polling or use of videos will need to be communicated with APHON’s Education Manager, Kelsey Kind, at kkind@aphon.org.

Do I need to cancel my hotel reservation?

If you booked your hotel reservation at the host hotel Salt Lake Marriott Downtown City Creek through the APHON room block, your reservation will be automatically canceled. If you booked a hotel room outside of the room block or at another hotel, please ensure you cancel on your own.

Will APHON reimburse my paid airline ticket expense?

All flights were booked separately from APHON and directly through the airlines. Although we as an organization cannot assist with this, we’d like to share some information that may be helpful. Most domestic airlines have introduced flexible change and cancellation policies for both existing and new bookings. Below are details for each major airline that you may find valuable:

United Airlines | American Airlines | Delta Airlines | Southwest Airlines

What if I have additional questions?

APHON will continue to update the website and provide additional communications to exhibitors and attendees; please check back regularly and/or watch your email inbox for these communications.

If you have additional questions, please contact info@aphon.org.
