Call for Interactive Educational Exchange
Call opens July 5 - August 2, 2017
Are you interested in presenting* at the Annual Assembly of Hospice & Palliative Care, March 14-17, 2018 in Boston, MA? This 90 minute special session will provide a structured, interactive, and hands-on forum for palliative care educators from all disciplines. Materials and methods from model educational initiatives will be presented and shared including curricula, program development, educational process, assessment tools, online materials, and research in teaching and evaluation.
Professionals and trainees involved in education from all palliative care disciplines are encouraged to submit. The educational innovation can be directed at a wide variety of learners, including trainees, colleagues, faculty, and interdisciplinary learners. Following submission, a panel of interdisciplinary, experienced palliative care educators will review the abstracts. Authors of selected abstracts will give a formal, 5 minute presentation at the Interactive Educational Exchange session in Boston. All presenters will then breakout to individual stations to answer questions and provide an interactive, hands-on experience with their innovation-specific materials for interested attendees.
The Annual Assembly is an opportunity to share and disseminate best practices in the field. Authors are asked to consider both the impact of their proposed topic or research on underrepresented and underserved populations and its relevance to the diverse groups of attendees. Accordingly, presenters are encouraged to address issues of cultural competency in their abstracts, case examples, and presentations. When applicable, presenters are encouraged to describe how issues of cultural diversity and inclusion are considered in their specific aims or session narrative.
Selected abstracts will be published as part of the Annual Assembly schedule in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management. If your abstract is selected for presentation and has been previously printed in a Peer Reviewed Journal, it will not be published in JPSM to avoid copyright infringement.
