Contemporary Pharmacology and Prescribing in Older Adults

After close monitoring of the evolving situation with the COVID-19, the Gerontological Advanced Practice Nurses Association (GAPNA) has decided to postpone the Contemporary Pharmacology Conference that was scheduled to take place April 14-18, 2020 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The conference has been rescheduled for April 20-24, 2021 at the same location, the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

The GAPNA Board of Directors made this decision after careful and thoughtful consideration of many factors, including the increasing number of cases of COVID-19, its impact on communities around the country and the world, the need for our nurses to be in their communities caring for patients, and the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, speakers, staff, and guests.

If you are currently registered for the conference, we will provide updated information to you with instructions regarding registration and hotel reservations. At this time, most airlines are waiving change fees, and we strongly urge you to check with your airline as soon as possible as policies between airline carriers may vary.

GAPNA sincerely thanks you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. For any urgent concerns, please contact gapna@gapna.org. We look forward to seeing you next year.
