The Theme for the 2015 Research Day, “Making a Difference Together: Showcasing Collaborations in Nursing and Health Research”
•    Oral presentations: Six minute total: 3 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes for questions, 3 slides maximum
We invite submission of abstracts (up to 250 words) for brief oral presentations on nursing or health related research and quality improvement projects that are either in progress or completed that exemplify successful partnerships aimed at making a difference. We welcome projects that represent the full range of possible partnerships including projects involving researchers and clinicians, projects involving multiple disciplines or partnerships between settings. Presenters are given 6 minutes  including time for questions and can have a maximum of 3 PowerPoint Slides to present to showcase how their collaborative team is working together to make a difference. In light of the increasing awareness of the importance of talking about mental health issues in our lives and our work, we invite all presenters to consider, and include in their presentation, one potential mental health implication of their research.

•    Seeding Ideas for Collaborative Teams: Six minute presentation, 3 slides maximum
We invite submission of abstracts (up to 250 words) from presenters for a brief oral presentation on nursing or health related research, quality improvement, or clinical issue that is at the “idea” stage. Following the presentations of all “Seeding Ideas” presenters will be asked to lead a roundtable discussion on the “idea” to further develop the idea and to identify next steps. Attendees of the Research Day will have the opportunity to listen to all the “Seeding Ideas” presentations and will be invited to participate in one roundtable discussion of a “Seeding Idea” that interests them. The research day will conclude with presenters reporting back highlights from the round table discussions, followed by concluding remarks. It is anticipated that through this “Seeding Ideas” session, ideas will become more developed through the valuable feedback and input from colleagues and new partnerships and collaborations will be formed in which to advance an idea into a future project.

•    Poster Presentations:

We invite submission of abstracts for poster sessions on research and quality improvement projects. The poster session is an opportunity for graduate students, researchers, clinicians and leaders in nursing and healthcare to showcase both projects in progress and completed projects. The goal is to foster networking dialogues and exchange with other attendees at the meeting. While we welcome projects on any nursing or health related topic, space is limited.
