Call for Poster and Podium Abstracts

GAPNA 2019 Annual Conference

The GAPNA Education and Research Committees invite GAPNA members (current or upon abstract submission) to submit an abstract about their innovative work for presentation at the Annual Conference.

Presentations should enrich the APRN’s knowledge and/or enhance the care of the older adult. Topics pertaining to advances in gerontological research or innovations in clinical practice change, NP and CNS roles or educational programs, or patient education are encouraged.

First author of abstract selected for poster or oral podium presentation will be eligible for an award from the GAPNA Foundation. Selected abstracts may be published in the GAPNA Newsletter, on the GAPNA Website, or in the Geriatric Nursing journal.

Deadline and Guidelines
Abstracts must be received by the GAPNA National Office by 12:00 a.m. (midnight) EST on March 15, 2019. View complete submission specifications.

Review and Acceptance
Abstracts are reviewed and selected by members of the GAPNA Education and Research Committees. Selection is based on interest to advanced practice nursing, contribution to the care of older adults, clarity, and content. Innovative educational-focused abstracts should include enrichment of the knowledge of students, clients, and/or healthcare providers and identify NP or CNS national competencies or evidence-based guidelines, as appropriate.
