CONVENTION

2017
Your donation helps nurses grow.

“Attending the STTI conference


allowed me to grow as a nurse.
I sincerely appreciate the support
given to me through this
leadership grant, as this
was an invaluable experience
and one that I will carry with me
throughout my career.”

— Ashley Gresh
This past year, donor support provided grants to 34 nurses from five of
STTI’s global regions to attend events like this one.

This past year, for every grant awarded


to nurses like Ashley, seven were declined.
Your donation will ensure these
critical resources are available to more nurses.

There are many ways you can support nurses


through the Sigma Theta Tau International Foundation.

Visit our booth near registration to learn more.

WELCOME & OBJECTIVES

Welcome to Indianapolis!

On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, thank you for joining us and 2,000 of your colleagues for the 44th Biennial
Convention of the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI). As you walk around the convention
venue and downtown Indianapolis, you can be sure the city knows you are here and welcomes you with what we call
Hoosier Hospitality.

This five-day convention allows you to network with other nurse leaders from around the world and share the ideas,
knowledge, perspectives, and experiences that unite us. As you experience all the convention offers, we believe you’ll
see why this event has become a visible embodiment of our mission to advance world health and celebrate nursing
excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service.

The 2017 convention theme is Influence Through Action: Advancing Global Health, Nursing, and Midwifery. The theme
is reinforced by more than 1,000 oral, symposia, and poster presentations detailing the latest clinical innovations, critical
research projects, and important leadership initiatives. Along the way, we also have several important Sigma milestones
to celebrate.

We encourage you to download and use our event app to help you successfully navigate your way through all the
sessions, events, and activities. If you are a first-time visitor, we invite you to visit the Headquarters Open House on
Sunday evening.

We trust the 44th Biennial Convention will provide you ample opportunities for education, edification, and enjoyment.
We look forward to sharing this exciting week with you. Once again, welcome.

W E LC O M E & O B J E C T I V E S
Sincerely,

Cathy Catrambone, PhD, RN, FAAN Patricia E. Thompson, EdD, RN, FAAN
President, STTI Chief Executive Officer, STTI

CONVENTION OUTCOMES

Global Advisory Panel on the Future of Nursing


and Midwifery (GAPFON®)
The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International
(STTI) officially released its 2014-2017 summary report
on the Global Advisory Panel on the Future of Nursing &
Midwifery (GAPFON®).

Representing the culmination of three years of STTI-led


efforts, the report synthesizes data on global healthcare
challenges and priority professional issues gathered at high-
level meetings in each of seven global regions.

STTI views the world’s 19.3 million nurses and midwives as


uniquely positioned to collaborate with health professionals
from every discipline, and launched GAPFON to give nurses
and midwives a unified voice and vision for the future to
advance global health, while simultaneously strengthening
professional roles.

A limited number of printed copies (in English) are for sale


in the STTI Marketplace. Free access to English and Spanish
versions can be downloaded at www.gapfon.org.
