April 23 — Nursing faculty present session at statewide nurse practitioner conference A team of nurse practitioner faculty from the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis presented a session at the virtual California Association for Nurse Practitioners (CANP) 43rd Annual Educational Conference April 22-24. Assistant Professors Laura Van Auker, Amber Ramage and Kathryn Sexson presented “2020 Update: Allergic Rhinitis Best-Practice Guidelines for Improved Health and Quality of Life.” During the virtual session, the team provided an overview of new best-practice guidelines for management of allergic rhinitis, or seasonal allergies. The team used a case-based format for the presentation. The new guidelines from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the American College of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology are the result of studies that show 35 to 40% of people with seasonal allergies report at least moderate impact on daily function due to symptoms. The annual CANP conference is a three-day event featuring education, networking and advocacy for the nurse practitioner profession.
