About the Conference

We are excited to offer yet another wonderful experience in 2024. Models of health care delivery are transforming. The roles of advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) and physician assistants (PA) are expanding and diversifying. The number of advanced practice providers (APP) in specialty and hospital settings is increasing as health care organizations recognize the benefits APPs provide. Additionally, primary care providers are treating a growing number of children with complex medical problems. These providers will need to be equipped with both acute and primary care knowledge. This conference provides attendees with both a primary and acute care perspective of pediatric health care as well as the opportunity to collaborate and network with colleagues.

About the Texas Children’s Hospital Transformational Advanced Professional Practice Model

The Texas Children’s Hospital Transformational Advanced Professional Practice Model (TAPP) for APPs serves as a conceptual framework to guide professional development and mentorship. It is one of few evidence-based APP practice models. The Direct Comprehensive Family-Centered Care domain forms the essence of the APP role and informs and shapes the execution of the six professional practice development domains:

  1. Organizational Priorities
  2. Quality and Safety
  3. Evidence-Based Practice and Research
  4. Education
  5. Transformational Professional Practice
  6. Credentialing and Regulatory Practice

The TAPP model serves a blueprint for establishing the structures and processes to support exemplary advanced practice.
