This congress will offer a unique programme of distinguished keynote speakers, symposia and oral and poster presentations on broad scientific issues covering the congress theme Nurses and Midwives CARE4 innovation: Technology in healthcare and education  

The CARE4 Scientific Committee welcomes the submission of high quality abstracts focusing on a wide variety of topics covering:

  • Nursing
  • Midwifery
  • Health and education

The call for abstracts opens on January 20, 2020. The abstract submission deadline is July 6, 2020.

 


There are 3 options for abstract submissions:

  • Oral presentation: Presenters in these dedicated sessions receive 13 minutes to present their work (project, research, quality improvement initiative, innovative ideas, …), followed by 2 minutes for questioning by the audience. All selected abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings.

  • Poster presentation: Presenters in these dedicated sessions will be invited to develop a poster to present their work (project, research, quality improvement initiative, innovative ideas, …). Presenters will need to present their work during the dedicated sessions and a broad audience will be guided through the posters and discussion will be encouraged. Posters will not be accepted from presenters who are not attending the congress. 

  • Symposia: Presenters receive 90 minutes to create a session including different presenters discussing about one specific topic or theme. Preference is given to symposia that are empirically-based, and present either new research data or the findings of systematic literature reviews. The format typically includes a chairperson and four presenters. The chairperson, who may also be a presenter, develops the format and content of the symposium, provides a brief overview of the topic for the audience, and introduces speakers. Besides, the chair summarizes, integrates, and/or critically comments on the presentations and their relevance to future directions of inquiry.
