Abstract / Presentation Information
We are looking for abstract presentations to participate in the session “Mixed Elements – The Chemistry of Best Practice”. This session will include 6 presenters making 6-minute presentations focused on a single topic, idea, project, or technique. Presenters do not attempt to cover all aspects of their subject matter, but rather present one facet of the idea clearly, succinctly, and are an excellent forum for first-time speakers. Slides are mostly visuals with little to no text, fitting a set format, merged into one presentation for timeliness.
The Mixed Elements Session will take place from 2:00 – 3:00pm on Tuesday, May 6, 2019. Please note: The exact timing of session may change.
When submitting your abstract, please identify which theme your presentation most relates to:
Theme 1: Professionalism
Theme 2: Patient Safety
Theme 3: Person-Centered Care
Abstracts will be subject to peer review, with members of the organizing committee participating in the review process. The primary author of all abstract submissions will be contacted via email by Thursday, March 14, 2019 with the results of the review.
Please use the following guide to help structure your abstract (headings are not mandatory):
- Introduction / Objective
A short description of the initiative, program or idea and what need it addresses.
Outline how the example, idea, project, or technique was developed and carried out.
Provide a summary of the conclusions or key findings. Are there any implications for policy or nursing practice? Next steps?
