The RCN Emergency Care Association are now accepting abstracts for their conference and exhibit 15th - 16th November at the Renaissance Marriott Manchester City Centre Hotel
Abstracts are invited for plenary, poster, concurrent and workshop presentations and should fall into one of the following themes:
Please do not feel that this list excludes you from sending in an abstract that may interest your colleagues in Urgent/Emergency Care, as they would not like to miss an excellent session simply because it does not fit into one of these categories.
The purpose of the abstract is twofold. Firstly, it will enable the committee to make an informed anonymous decision on the suitability of the presentation for the conference programme.
Secondly, the abstract will provide the participants attending the conference with written information to support the presentation.
Types of presentations
Plenary presentations are delivered in the main conference hall to all conference delegates and are 30 minutes sessions.
Concurrent session papers are presented orally. Presenters are allocated a maximum of 20 minutes presentation followed by five minutes of discussion and questions.
Poster presentations are visual displays of material to be presented and exhibited throughout the duration of the conference. Posters have the potential to reach a wide audience, and constitute an interactive medium which is best suited to the presentation of factual data e.g. project, design of findings.
Workshops are interactive sessions of 60 minutes duration where the presenter works with participants to develop their knowledge and understanding within a specific field. A workshop is lead by an expert within the field and may be pitched at a novice, intermediate or advanced level.
