FMDA – The Florida Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine is the official state chapter of AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute & Long-Term Care Medicine, and a Specialty Society of the Florida Medical Association. It is based in West Palm Beach, Florida. FMDA represents nearly 500 medical directors, attending physicians, physician assistants, and advanced registered nurse practitioners in Florida’s post-acute care continuum including sub-acute care, hospice, skilled nursing, and assisted living facilities, as well as in continuing care retirement communities. The mission of FMDA is to promote the highest quality care as patients’ transition through the long term care continuum. FMDA is dedicated to providing leadership, professional education and advocacy for the inter-professional team.


Florida Geriatrics Society (FGS) is a not-for-profit state organization with interest in scientific, educational and academic activities to the entire geriatric care team, who can render optimal care for older adults. In addition to this winter meeting, FGS holds an annual medical convention to provide both CME and CEU credits for physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, psychologists and social workers. Members of the Board of Directors of FGS hold representation from all the medical schools in the state of Florida. It encourages in‐training fellows, residents, and medical students’ participation. FGS is also a Specialty Society of the Florida Medical Association.

Florida Chapters – Gerontological Advanced Practice Nurses Association (FL-GAPNA) GAPNA was founded in 1981, by a small group of GNPs with the intention of offering the first continuing education conferences designed specifically to meet the needs of advanced practice nurses. Currently, GAPNA represents nearly 10,000 certified advanced practice nurses who work with older adults in a wide variety of practice settings. GAPNA is the organization of choice for advanced practice nurses who want to pursue continuing education in gerontological care and who seek peer support from experienced clinicians. The FL-GAPNA Chapter and the Florida Gulf Coast Chapters both operate in the state of Florida.

National Association Directors of Nursing Administration (NADONA) – Since 1986, NADONA has been the leading advocate and educational organization for DONs, A DONs and RNs in Long-Term Care (LTC). NADONA/LTC was founded by dedicated LTC professionals, and its board of trustees still consists of LTC professionals. NADONA understands daily challenges, and are here to provide nurses with the tools they need for professional success.


The program is designed to provide a review and update of major PALTC and geriatric diseases, illnesses, and risks found in nursing home patients, residents of assisted living facilities, those under hospice care, and senior living at home.
