2021 Poster and Abstract Winners

Each year, PCNA invites nurses and other healthcare professionals to submit abstracts on the topic of cardiovascular risk reduction and disease management for presentation at the Cardiovascular Nursing Symposium. Abstracts fit into two categories: original research and innovative projects. In 2021, we were proud to accept 17 posters for presentation at our meeting. You can view each poster in the Virtual Poster Session.

Oral Abstract Winners

The top abstracts from each category were invited to make an oral presentation at the 2021 Cardiovascular Nursing Symposium.

  • James Muchira, PhD, MSN, was the Original Research category winner for his research titled “Parental Ideal Heart Health Reduces Offspring’s Burden of Cardiovascular Disease Over the Life-Course.”
  • Kim St. Clare Seals was the Innovative project category winner for her project “Clinical Application of a Solution Set of Clinical Decision Support Tools at the Point of Care Significantly Improves Quality of Care in Hyperlipidemia Patients: Interim Results from the Statewide Florida Cardiovascular Quality Network.”

Thank you to Dr. Muchira and Ms. St. Clare Seals for your informative presentations!
