Submitting an Abstract for Poster Presentation
Help build the field of pulmonary hypertension - Submit an abstract!
Want to highlight research conducted at your institution? Consider submitting your research abstract for presentation at the 2013 PH Professional Network (PHPN) Symposium Poster Hall!
Research abstract audiences will be a mixture of new to experienced healthcare professionals working in the field of pulmonary hypertension. While PHA encourages the submission of original abstracts, submissions do not need to be original work. Abstracts also do not need to be fully executed in practice.
PHPN welcomes proposals in all areas of practice. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Guidelines for specific clinical situations, implementation of a process to improve patient outcomes or innovative use of technology in clinical practice
- Development or implementation of a performance improvement program
- Patient safety initiatives
- Patient satisfaction improvement initiatives
- Identification and implementation of PH educational needs for healthcare professionals
- PH nursing orientation programs, role implementation or development of practice guidelines
Topics are subject to the discretion of the Symposium Abstracts Subcommittee and the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. If you have any questions about the appropriateness of your topic, please contact a PHPN abstract mentor by emailing PHPN@PHAssociation.org.
How to Request a Mentor
You do not need to be an experienced author to submit an abstract! To request a mentor from the PHPN Symposium Committee, please contact PHPN@PHAssociation.org by April 1, 2013.
A topic and a draft or detailed outline should be prepared at the time of your request. A mentor can work with you to fine-tune or properly format your abstract.
How to Submit an Abstract
Abstracts should be sent by email to PHPN@PHAssociation.org.
Deadline for submission is June 3, 2013.
Submissions will not be accepted after this date. Please consult the webinar, guidelines and sample abstract below for the correct format and thoroughly review your work prior to submission.
The abstract process will be blinded. Submitting authors will be notified via email by June 30, 2013, regarding abstract acceptance and the presentation at Symposium.
A poster board (8' x 4') will be provided on-site for poster display. Posters should be slightly smaller than the board size. A poster template and example are available in the resources section below.
