Poster Deadline: Friday, June 10, 2016, 11:59 pm ET
Submit a Poster of an original research study, systematic review, evidence-based clinical practice approach or related topic for the 2016 Virtual Conference.
The American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM), Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association (HPNA) and National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) will host this virtual event, which is designed to advance the provision of innovative, evidence-based, exceptional hospice and palliative care. Challenges on the Front Lines: Effective Approaches to Complex Cases will feature live streaming plenary speakers, webinar-based concurrent sessions, a poster gallery, video library and unique opportunities for interaction, all via the Internet.
Conference content (including Posters) is being designed to reach these objectives:
To ensure your proposal is given serious consideration, provide all requested information in the online submission format and ensure that any co-presenters complete required information before the deadline (Friday, June 10, 2016).
In order to allow an independent evaluation of the relevance and potential effectiveness of the Poster Presentation, submissions must include the following:
Posters will undergo a rigorous review by members of the Conference Planning Committee, based upon the following criteria:
Once Posters have been selected, faculty will be notified about the required format/size required for submission and resources will be provided to facilitate the submission of Posters that are visually engaging. Selections will occur by the first week of June, 2016. A deadline for submission of Posters for the virtual conference will be established and communicated to all faculty; expect the deadline to be in mid- July.
A Poster proposal submitted for this virtual conference may also be submitted for other conferences. Posters that have previously been featured at other conferences are eligible for selection at this conference.
The conference conveners are committed to minimizing commercial bias in Poster submissions and accompanying handouts. Posters should not contain commercial logos, company names, brand or proprietary drug names.
All potential faculty who submit a proposal will receive e-mail notification of their proposal's status. Once the selection of posters is complete, a confirmation email will be sent to faculty. An electronic message will be sent to all presenters whose proposals were accepted with a link to the Faculty website. This website will include all deadlines and required information needed for the conference. All communication with faculty is electronic.
Selected Posters will be displayed in an online Poster Gallery. The conference schedule will provide opportunities and recommendations for participants to visit the Poster Gallery. It is not necessary for faculty to be (virtually) present during these times. Participants will be able to download/print Posters for future reference, email faculty with questions and to request additional information.
Posters will remain available to attendees for three (3) months after the live virtual conference is completed.
Faculty desiring to register for the Virtual Conference will receive the “Early Bird” registration rate.
