That’s right! The American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants (AALNC) Annual Forum is LIVE again this year, and is coming to the beautiful Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate, Orlando, Florida, April 28-30, 2022. The events and sessions begin with Pre-Forum Activities on April 28, 2022 and the Forum, PACKED with exciting presentations and networking events, begins the evening of April 28 with opening of the Exhibit Hall and the Welcome and Networking Reception!

This event is NOT just for the legal nurse consultant (LNC). Are you a clinician who has been involved in a medical-legal case as a provider or treater and want to learn more about the process? Are you an attorney who is looking for experts, LNCs, or for tools, such as electronic records programs that will help you win your cases?

Who should attend? Programming and session are applicable to a variety of specialties and interest areas, including:

  • Life Care Planning
  • Risk Management
  • Case Management
  • Occupational Health
  • Forensics
  • Expert Witness
  • Worker’s Compensation
  • School Nursing
  • Corrections
  • Civil Rights

Education sessions will include clinical topics such as wound care, OB litigation and urologic surgery; and practice issues on serving as an expert witness and expert report writing, COVID litigation and much more!  Attendees will have opportunities to:

  • Engage in educational activities that will address personal learning interest and needs;
  • Analyze selected LNC practices and attain new knowledge and skills to improve personal work products as well as client satisfaction and outcomes; and
  • Interact with colleagues to exchange ideas, explore trends and issues, and consult for personal assistance in meeting specific practice goals.  IN OTHER WORDS – NETWORKING, NETWORKING, NETWORKING!

The American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants (AALNC) was founded in 1989, as a not for profit membership organization dedicated to the professional enhancement and growth of registered nurses practicing in the specialty of legal nurse consulting. Chapter development quickly followed. The Orlando community was rich with nurses already practicing in the field of legal nursing. This group of committed professionals quickly became members of the new national organization and recognized the need for a local chapter. The Greater Orlando Chapter of AALNC, founded in 1990, was the second chapter formed under the new national organization. The Chapter was begun in support of AALNC’s mission, by providing networking opportunities, mentoring and support to nurses through professional development and education – a mission that is continued to this day.

WE ARE NEAR YOU! Maybe not geographically, but through your computer or phone. The Greater Orlando Chapter has members from 26 States and Canada. Since 2014, the Greater Orlando Chapter’s live Chapter Meetings with CE Programs have been broadcast virtually! So members and guests have been attending from all over the Country since then! Because of COVID, since 2020 all of our CE Programs have been virtual. When we start meeting in person again, you can still attend from anywhere as we will continue to broadcast all of our meetings and CE Programs as Webinars!
