2018 National Update on Behavioral Emergencies

Bally’s Las Vegas

December 13-14, 2018

Thank you for submitting! The speaker submissions for 2018 NUBE ended July 1. Please check back next year for speaker submissions for 2019 NUBE.


We are seeking dynamic, engaging, and knowledgeable presenters for the annual National Update on Behavioral Emergencies Conference.


The primary conference audience consists of psychiatrists, emergency medicine physicians, nurses, social workers, and residents. Lecture and workshop content and instruction should be geared to a level that is appropriate for the target audience.


Proposals are solicited for topics in behavioral emergencies that are interactive, creative, dynamic, and feature best practices in psychiatric emergency medicine. Based on the complexity and subject matter of your topic, you will be assigned either a 15-minute, 30-minute, or 45-minute presentation slot (please indicate if you have a preference when applying). Time slots that are 45-minutes are reserved for speakers who will actively engage the audience in some manner (ie, not a traditional lecture). The presentation timeframe should include introductions, presentation material, and a question & answer session. Attendees should leave with specific knowledge and skills about various aspects of the topic and how it relates to their future development. Presentations should provide attendees with educational value and refrain from promoting a specific business, product, or service.


A completed presentation is required before the conference opening day. Please keep the abstract length to <500 words.


All submitters will be notified of acceptance, regret or wait listed by July 25, 2018. Presenters are encouraged to upload a photograph and a bio at the time abstracts are submitted. Bios are limited to a maximum of 250 words. The goal of the presenter bio is to provide us with a high-level view of your career and your major accomplishments.

Presenter bios are required for CME approval.
