Please send an email to Sara Carter at sara.carter@acnp.org.au to register your interest. 
"At the ACNP we are always looking at ways to add greater value for our members. The introduction of UpToDate, an evidence-based, health professional authored clinical decision support solution from Wolters Kluwer, for our members, will allow you to have the most up-to-date information for your patients at your fingertips.  
As a user of UpToDate throughout my career as a Nurse Practitioner, and during my studies, I have found up-to-date to be an extremely valuable resource that has helped to support my research and clinical decisions. 
Today, there are even more NPs moving into private practice, more NPs working autonomously and we wanted to provide members with a real benefit that can help you with your patients.”
Leanne Boase, ACNP President
