2018 Transforming Health, Driving Policy Conference
Abstract Submission GuidelinesFor the 2018 Policy Conference, we invite abstracts specific to the conference objectives and the advancement of health policy. We encourage abstracts that demonstrate nursing contributions to health policy through translational science from efficacy to effectiveness studies, implementation and dissemination studies, comparative effectiveness research, or historical and health policy research. Moreover, quality improvement projects that inform organizational policy and systems of care are welcomed, as are evidence-based practice projects.
The Academy is dedicated to showcasing nurses as advocates, policy makers, change agents, strategists, and scientists. Our overarching goal is to demonstrate how the work of nurses results in initiatives that lead and shape health care and health policy advancements.
The 2018 Policy Conference will focus on issues surrounding Social Justice. The cost for submitting abstracts for peer review is $45. If your abstract is accepted for presentation, there will be a second cost of $90 to submit your poster. Additionally, presenters will be expected to pay the conference registration fee before the start of the conference. Conference registration opens on May 1, 2018 at www.aannet.org/2018.
