Key Considerations to the submission review process include:
What will be learned as a result of attending your session? Submissions should include a clear description and learning objectives. Anyone reading your submission should have a solid understanding of the information that will be shared and what learning outcomes will be achieved. Consider why this information is important and how others can use it.
Who is your Target Audience? Provide a clear understanding of who will benefit most from your session (such as care setting and professional role/position). What is the development level your session is geared toward (beginner, intermediate or advanced learner)?
We are seeking a variety of content reflecting different care settings (some examples include acute care, ambulatory care, home care, hospice care, long term care, outpatient care, pediatric/children, physician practice/office setting and transitional care) and development levels.
What outcomes or impact were realized? Sessions should include stories/case studies of how your facility or organization has made marked improvements sharing lessons learned, new strategies and practices identified. Sessions are focused on sharing ideas, practical tools, the process necessary and resources with measurable outcomes illustrating patient experience improvement.
What is the practical story this session shares? Sessions should engage participants in the ideas you want to share, the learning objectives you offer and the potential takeaways you provide.
Special consideration will be given to submissions including patient and family input or perspective.
