Rapid Fire (20-minute) or Poster Presentations

A limited number of submissions will be selected for Rapid Fire (20-minute) or Poster presentations to be included in the AANP 2018 National Conference schedule. Major abstract categories include clinical/practice and research.

Rapid Fire (20-minute) presentations are meant to deliver quick, high quality content and will be scheduled as standalone presentations at different times throughout the conference which includes replacing podium presentations. Note: Rapid Fire presentations include a 15-minute lecture with 5-minute Q&A.

AANP will schedule three separate poster sessions (one on each day, Thursday, Friday and Saturday). Each poster will be exhibited one day only.

  • Areas of interest include: novel clinical or education interventions, innovative models of care, emerging health conditions, evolving leadership and policy issues, original research findings and resourceful outcome measures.
  • Final selections will be based on the quality and clarity of the abstract and relevance to the contemporary NP practice environment.
  • Available to speak on ANY of the conference dates between Tuesday, June 26, 2018 through Sunday, July 1, 2018.

Appropriate Content:

  • Completed research papers concerning all facets of NP practice (in-progress reports will be considered for poster presentations only)
  • Brief updates regarding clinical innovations and practice issues relevant to NPs (to allow coverage within a Rapid Fire or poster presentation)
