  • Healthcare System (e.g., delivery, services, costs, safety, nurse-sensitive indicators);
  • Healthcare Policy (e.g., scope of practice, regulation, prescriptive authority);
  • Health Promotion (e.g., wellness management, disease management, symptom management, quality of life, functional status, medications and other therapeutics);
  • Education (e.g., healthcare provider/students, patients, families, populations [vulnerable, unique], communities);
  • Palliative Care Across the Lifespan

Presentation Options

The call for abstracts covers four different types of presentations:  individual podium; symposium; clinical management lecture and poster presentations.
