Call for Scholar E-Posters
Open November 13 - December 14
Are you a current scholar (fellow, student, etc.) interested in presenting your research? AAHPM and HPNA are accepting work-in-progress student e-poster submissions for the Annual Assembly of Hospice & Palliative Care, March 14-17, 2018 in Boston, MA.
The Annual Assembly is an opportunity to share your in-progress research or improvement projects, receive feedback from professionals in the field, and prepare you to revise, enhance and share your final poster at other national meetings.
About the Presentation
Authors of selected abstracts will give a formal, 5 minute presentation during a walk-around session at the Annual Assembly. All presenters will be given the opportunity to gather feedback from experts following the presentation. Accepted posters will be presented digitally onsite.
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.
