Call for Late Breaking Posters
The CSU Shiley Institute for Palliative Care is currently accepting abstracts for Late-Breaking Posters to be presented at the 2019 National Symposium for Academic Palliative Care Education and Research.
The Symposium, Oct. 11-12 at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina, will draw palliative care professionals from across the country to hear from nationally renowned experts in palliative care, and present their research, share their pedagogical or clinical advances, and network with colleagues.
The Late-Breaking Call for Poster Abstracts requests submissions related to the Symposium theme, Advancing Palliative Care: Leading Into the Future. Share with your colleagues how you are working toward our shared goal of improving care for those with serious, chronic, or life-threatening illness.
The deadline to submit an abstract is Aug. 11!
Examples of topics:
- Advancement of interdisciplinary pedagogical or clinical experiences
- Increasing access and decreasing barriers to care
- Meeting the needs of unique and underserved populations
- Ethical challenges
- Other topics of interest to this audience or fitting of the theme
Presenting a Poster Helps Advance the Field
The National Symposium features palliative care leaders and academic scholars, teachers, and practitioners from around the country, in an array of plenary and concurrent sessions. Gain new insights on the latest developments and best practices, and many opportunities to network with peers. We encourage you to submit a late-breaking abstract to join the program, and present your work!
Abstracts should fit within the Symposium theme, Advancing Palliative Care: Leading Into the Future. For presentations of research findings, abstracts must include:
- Study aims
- Study methods (design, sample, measures)
Authors whose names are listed in the abstract form will be published in the program.
Accepted submissions will be featured during a Friday afternoon poster session and reception where authors should plan to be present to discuss their work with colleagues. Attendees and poster presenters alike have rated the poster session as one of the most delightful features of this conference.
This year, poster presentation abstracts will have the opportunity to be awarded Meritorious Research awards. Awards will be displayed during the poster reception.
Presenting a poster at this conference affords experienced researchers as well as beginning researchers to share their work and get feedback from colleagues. Submit your poster abstract, or encourage colleagues or students to submit a poster!
