|ISTH 2015: Nurses' Forum and Nurses & Allied Health Professionals' Scientific Session|
We are pleased to announce that the ISTH XXV Congress in Toronto will feature a dedicated Nurses' Forum on Sunday and Monday, June 21-22, 2015, during the Congress. The program will differ somewhat from previous congresses. On the morning of the second day (Monday, June 22), there will be a scientific session with oral presentation of peer reviewed abstracts.
We are encouraging nurses and allied health professionals that have ongoing projects, or who can perform and complete a study by the end of 2014, to strongly consider submitting your results as an abstract to the ISTH Congress. It would be wonderful to see many abstract submissions for this new category, and there is still time to complete a smaller project.
Deadline for abstract submission is February 4, 2015. When you submit your abstract, be sure to indicate the abstract’s category as “Nurses and Allied Health.” The abstract will then be sorted for review by your peers. The best abstracts will be scheduled for oral presentation on June 21, and the remaining abstracts will be scheduled for a poster presentation on the same day. The poster presentation is in the late afternoon, but posters can be viewed during the entire day.
As a reminder, Allied Health Professionals include pharmacists, physiotherapists, social workers, laboratory technicians and others. Low preferential registration rates are offered for nurses and allied health professionals to facilitate your congress participation.
A preliminary program is now available online on the ISTH 2015 Congress website. Be sure to check back for updates in the coming months.
