Late Breaking Call for Posters
Did you miss the deadline for poster submission for the 2018 conference? Was your program evaluation or research not far enough along? Do you have a new clinical innovation to share? Have no fear, a late-breaking poster submission is here!
We are excited to announce that there is still time to submit your work for presentation at the upcoming conference in Rochester! The Collaborative Family Healthcare Association invites you to submit a “Late-Breaking” poster proposal. This opportunity will allow you to present important late-breaking findings in the field of collaborative/integrated care. This submission should be a new poster proposal that has not already been submitted for the 2018 conference.
Proposals for Late-Breaking Poster Presentations must be submitted online on or before July 20, 2018.
Not sure whether your work would make a good poster? The poster format works well for many types of projects beyond just the traditional “research” and evaluation studies. To give you some ideas of the wide variety of projects that can be presented via poster, the CFHA Research and Evaluation Committee has gathered these examples of different types of posters, ranging from literature reviews, descriptions of training programs, implementation efforts, quality improvement projects, and more. Consider submitting your own work as a poster – share your work with others in the field!
Poster Presentations allow authors to visually present their best ideas and/or latest research findings in a way that facilitates dialogue and networking among colleagues.
We encourage proposals that represent an array of projects including progressive policy-oriented work, novel training initiatives, pilot projects, studies of fiscal issues, formal scientific research, program evaluation, quality improvement initiatives, and performance improvement.
There will be approximately 60 poster displays at the 2018 conference. The poster session will take place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel from 5:15 to 6:45 PM on Friday, October, 19, 2018.
