Topics of Interest

In honoring the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, we invite abstracts which focus on moving our profession forward, diversifying our practice, and improving the health care of our patients.

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.
