PCNA Call For Abstracts Begins This September
(September 17, 2014) The Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association (PCNA), headquartered in Madison, Wis., will hold its 21st Annual Symposium in Anaheim, CA, this April 8-11, 2015. During the symposium, healthcare professionals are invited to create and present a unique abstract related to data-based or original research, quality improvement and innovative projects in cardiovascular risk reduction and disease management. Winners will be selected in two categories: Data-Based Research and Innovation in Patient Care.
One of the most exciting and important aspects of submitting and presenting an abstract at the Annual Symposium is the speaker’s opportunity to promote their work to major healthcare professionals in the cardiovascular industry. Not only will presenters’ work be presented in a public forum, but it also allows them to show their leadership potential to PCNA organizers.
Both winning abstracts will be featured in the post-symposium issue of the Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, the official journal of PCNA. The journal provides thorough coverage of timely topics and information that is extremely practical for daily, on-the-job use by Advance Practice Nurses.
“Abstract poster presentations are always a popular part of the Annual Symposium,” comments Peggy Rynearson, Meeting Planner at PCNA. “The time and effort that these presenters put into their projects is inspiring and shows that although this industry has come so far in the last ten years there is always room for innovation and new expertise.”
PCNA has established itself as the premier organization of nursing professionals dedicated to the prevention of cardiac and other vascular diseases throughout the lifespan. PCNA’s mission includes developing and promoting nurses as leaders in this field and supporting comprehensive risk reduction strategies for individuals and populations across the lifespan.
