Specifically, we are seeking submissions related to:- Preclinical research (i.e. animal or in vitro)- Case reports and/or case series- Observational clinical studies- Clinical trials- Literature reviews and summaries- Standardized clinic protocols - Group programs of care - Use of diagnostic tools and tests- Models of care
Context: Posters are widely used in the academic community and most conferences include poster presentations. The poster as an information vehicle can summarize important information and provide a snapshot to attendees in a different format from an oral presentation.
This is an additional way of getting good information out to our attendees and allowing clinicians and researchers within our community to share their clinical experience and knowledge gained from formal research. A poster usually incorporates a mixture of brief text mixed with tables, graphs, pictures, and schematics to bring interest and clarity to the information. At the conference, one or more of the authors will stand by the poster display while other participants come to view the presentation and ask questions.
Concepts for presentation: Aim to provide relevant information and main concepts. The information on your poster should address three main questions:1. What is the most important and interesting finding you want your audience to take away from this?2. How can you visually share this information effectively? Should you use charts, graphs, photos, images?3. What kind of information can you convey while talking to attendees that will complement your poster?
Tips to consider when completing a poster:• Most important information should be readable from 10 feet away• The title should be short and draw interest• Keep overall word count between 300 to 800 words • Keep text clear and to the point• Use bullets, numbering, and headlines to make it easy to read• Use graphics, color and fonts effectively• Have a consistent and clean layout with lots of ‘white’ space• Include all authors, acknowledgments and any affiliations for the authors
The research committee is offering support in your poster production:We will have peer review and guided support to help authors bring the best information forward in this setting. Through mentorship by students and practitioners who have experience producing posters, the OncANP research committee will offer direct help in this process. Upon review some commentary will be provided to the authors that are submitting this information for helpful feedback.
Submissions are due by Monday, November 5th, 2018 at 9pm PDT/11:59pm EDT – no exceptions.
A. OncANP Conference Committee (for conference presentations), or Research Committee (for posters), or Professional Education Committee (for webinars), peer review of content prior to the activity to ensure evidence-based content using best available, highest strength of evidence. The presenter must be responsive to revision requirements offered by the committee. B. Assignment of a different topic for the individual. C. Assignment of a different presenter for the topic. D. Cancellation of the presenter.

NOTE: Relevant relationships identified on the disclosure form (including the absence of such relationships) must be conveyed to the audience in the presentation slides as slide #2 and verbally recited at the beginning of the presentation. If no slides are used, the disclosures must be stated verbally by the presenter at the beginning of the presentation.
NOTE: the presence of a relevant financial relationship does not necessarily preclude participation as a presenter, with resolution of the conflict as outlined above.
