We are specifically seeking practitioners who may be practicing in non-traditional areas (patient base, geographical locations, unique specialties).

Please feel free to submit an abstract of an evidence-based health care topic of your choice.

  • Concurrent Sessions - may be offered once or twice, back to back, or on different days during the conference. Class sizes may be 50-100 participants.
  • Workshop Sessions - most are offered once throughout the conference, with a few that may repeat. These sessions should be skills or assessment oriented. Limited class sizes of 15-30.
