Call for Abstracts
Submissions are currently open for abstracts - share your unique expertise
APNA is calling for abstracts that embrace the Nurseforce for the Future theme.
Successful abstracts will illustrate where one or more of the following have been exemplified in primary health care nursing:
models of care
quality and safety
workforce recruitment and retention; and/or
Compliance with the Abstract Guidelines is required.
Submissions may include, but are not limited to, interventions, projects, case studies or research. Abstracts detailing creative, forward-thinking projects aimed at fostering a healthier future for all Australians, or examples of models of care that optimise the role of the nurse are encouraged. Both clinical and non-clinical aspects of primary health care nursing can be explored, including population health priorities, quality and safety in practice, workforce development, health literacy, coordinated care, social determinants of health, justice and equality.
Nurses from all settings are invited to make a submission; general practice, community health, midwifery, schools, corrections, aged care and beyond. Authors need not be a nurse – as long as the submission is pertinent to primary health care and the role of nurses, it will be considered.
APNA strongly encourages nurses who have not presented an abstract before to make a submission. In addition to being beneficial to peers and broader primary health care, the feedback is unanimous that the experience is professionally and personally rewarding, often leading to further career opportunities through leadership, mentoring and peer education.
