Call for Posters for our 2021 Virtual Poster Session

Healthcare professionals are invited to submit a proposal to present a virtual poster at CCCC’s upcoming Palliative Care Summit. A virtual poster session is similar to a traditional conference poster session. The 2021 Palliative Care Summit is being presented in partnership with the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association and Hawaii’s Kōkua Mau, a Movement to Improve Care

For the Summit 2021 virtual poster session, presenters will submit a presentation of their work (see guidelines below for details). Posters will be uploaded to the website.

A written abstract of no more than 250 words (not including title, names and affiliations) describing your poster must be submitted by Wednesday April 28, 2021, in order to be considered.

We will be offering continuing education for the Poster Session in 2021 to help drive participation. In order to be considered for credit, the abstracts need to include the following information:

  • Title of Poster
  • Names and Affiliations
  • 2 – 3 Learning Objectives: Objectives should be formatted to complete this sentence: “The engaged participant will be able to…” i.e., identify tools…, discuss the importance…, etc.
  • Background/Objective/Research Question: State the objective, question or purpose of project.
  • Methods/Study Design: Short description of study design or project process.
  • Results/Analysis: Provide the main outcomes, results and statistics (if used).
  • Conclusions/Interpretations: Discussion, conclusions found by the study or project.

Poster Session Description

Poster topics should focus on programs and projects that increase access to palliative care or advance care planning. Posters should include a program description, solutions that address the topic and a description of the results (outcomes/data). Each poster will have its own page on the Summit 2021 website. The page will feature an image of the poster, the poster abstract, and an optional YouTube link to a presenter-recorded video walkthrough of the poster.

One presenter per accepted poster must register for the Summit. Poster presenters will receive a $50 discount on conference registration (limit one discount per poster).

Please Note: The email address of the registered poster presenter must be included on the poster for attendees to address any questions or comments.
