Conference 2013 Request for Proposals
33rd Annual Conference
June 5-8, 2013 ? Norfolk, Virginia
AHNA invites you to submit proposals for the 2013 Annual Conference, Holistic Nursing: Oceans of Possibilities, by Wednesday, October 10, 2012. Poster abstracts and Research Papers and Panels presenting study results on selected topics will be accepted until December 1, 2012.
Purpose: The purpose of this conference is to enable holistic nurses to develop and refine knowledge and skills designed to consciously impact healthcare transformation.
Theme: Holistic nurses are poised, locally and globally, to be active participants in the creation of caring/healing healthcare systems. They are experts in their understanding of the relationship between holistic praxis (integrated practice, education and research) and the creation of these environments; however, their contributions and expertise remain unrecognized on a broader scale. This conference will explore possibilities for holistic nurses to deepen their influence in healthcare reform.
Abstracts relevant to holistic nursing are requested for poster presentation at AHNA’s 33rd Annual Conference to be held June 5-8, 2013. Submissions are anticipated to reflect the conference purpose & theme which is to “ to enable holistic nurses to develop and refine knowledge and skills designed to consciously impact healthcare transformation."
A Non-Research Poster provides a summary, in poster format, of a completed project or activity that is relevant to holistic nursing and will enable the learner to acquire or improve knowledge or skills beyond basic knowledge and enhance professional development or performance as a nurse.
Posters will be displayed for the duration of the conference with two, one-hour presenter Q/A sessions required.
