Call for Abstracts

A record number of abstract submissions are now being reviewed - program selections announced late December

Year after year, the APNA national conference provides a preeminent platform to recognise and celebrate the best examples of primary health care nursing, further building on the expertise and collegiality of the formidable nurse workforce.

The APNA 2019 National Conference will be Building on the Best from 4 to 6 April in charming Adelaide, and this is your opportunity to present to your colleagues on learnings that have meaningful implications for primary health care.

What is an abstract?

A written piece no more than 500 words that sets out an issue needing to be addressed, your action/research/intervention in response to this issue, the subsequent outcomes and implications. 

Who can submit an abstract?

  • Anyone who has value to add to a conference program targetted at primary health care nurses, along with other practice team members, health project and policy officers, academics etc. working in this space
  • Nurses working in primary health care
  • Peer educators
  • General Practice Team
  • Primary Health Network staff 
  • Academics 
  • Health promotion/project officers

APNA is working diligently to develop a broad and thought-provoking program featuring workshops, keynotes, panels and breakfast sessions that are valuable and relevant to the daily practice of primary health care nurses. Pivotal to a diverse program are the punchy and pertinent abstract presentations which will explore interventions, projects, case studies and research that impact primary health care nursing.

Successful abstracts will showcase innovative and replicable models of care, explore how the profile of nurses' role can be better understood and recognised, touch on policy issues impacting primary health care nursing, highlight quality improvement in practice, investigate workforce capacity building, and identify proficient health care across the life of a patient.

Abstract authors and presenters are striving to build on their best by giving shape to the conference program with their experience, insight, take home message for nurses in primary health care.
