The American College of Phlebology (ACP) is expanding the Annual Congress experience with new educational opportunities, cutting-edge science and research all centered around the latest in healthcare policy. The event will offer something for all experience levels of venous, lymphatic and wound care providers and encourage creative problem-solving and a sense of community.
The 32nd ACP Annual Congress will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee, November 8-11, 2018. Registration opens May 9 for ACP members and June 28 for non-members at acpcongress.org.
Educational opportunities at ACP 2018
The ACP 2018 Annual Congress concurrent sessions will deliver extensive educational opportunities for physician and non-physician healthcare participants across all aspects of venous and lymphatic medicine. These sessions will dedicate extensive time to relevant subjects, including eighteen hours of deep venous and superficial venous disease. The program also will provide dedicated sessions on vascular medicine, lymphedema care, ultrasound imaging, venous aesthetics and the latest in chronic wound management.
See the latest advancements in vein care
Each afternoon all attendees will join the general sessions showcasing the latest advancements in venous and lymphatic research. The general sessions will present new research opportunities and new investigations undertaken in the past year, and they will highlight efforts to influence healthcare policy through advocacy and demonstrate how each individual can raise a voice as an advocate.
“There will be special keynote sessions on our relationships with payors and policy makers and how the ACP and individual practitioners can influence those relationships to achieve better medical policies for our patients,” said Dr. Stephen Daughtery, Program Chair for the ACP 2018 Annual Congress.
To better serve Latin American attendees, a live Spanish translation service will be available during most sessions throughout the meeting.
The ACP Village
On Sunday morning, attendees will walk through the ACP Village’s themed neighborhoods, including: Sclerotherapy/Small Veins, Compression and Wound Care, NTNT, Thrombosis, Superficial Vein Treatment, Chronic Venous Obstruction and Pelvic Venous Reflux. Each neighborhood will offer hands-on demonstrations, opportunities to ask questions and much more. The ACP Village will be open for three hours as a unique time for hands-on education in a relaxed atmosphere.
Engage with colleagues
This event is more than an opportunity to grow in knowledge and skill in venous and lymphatic medicine. It is a place to engage with fellow members and colleagues and to advance the field by being involved with focused committees that will be meeting throughout the Annual Congress.
The 2018 Annual Congress will kick off with an informal Welcome Drop-In on Wednesday evening. The Exhibit Hall will now be open each day during an extended lunch break and for the Exhibit Hall Opening Reception on Thursday evening. The ACP Foundation will host various events throughout the Annual Congress to support its mission to advance Advocacy, Research and Education, including a Sunset Celebration every evening, the Silent Auction and the Annual Fun Run. And, be sure to make plans to be a part of the closing celebration Saturday evening!
