To get started you will need to register as a new user. This is a simple step and will only take a few minutes. Once registered you can create a new abstract. Please note that if your abstract is successful, all presenting authors are required to register and pay for at least one day of the ACRA 2019 conference.
You will be asked to:
1) RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Have you conducted scientific research or investigated a topic in the field of cardiac care? We are seeking abstracts on the latest research with original data (this includes quantitative or qualitative studies, systematic/narrative reviews and meta-analyses). This is your chance to share your study findings with colleagues.
2) CLINICAL ABSTRACT:
Have you found an identifiable gap in knowledge relating to clinical practice that warranted investigation? Have you established a new service to fill an identified need? Do you have tips for implementation that you could you pass on to others? This is your chance to share your challenging clinical scenarios with your colleagues, and guide discussion for potential improvements.
3) CLINICAL EXCELLENCE SHOWCASE:
Have you implemented an innovative practice or QI project? Overcome a clinical challenge? Set-up a program or service which offers something a little out of the ordinary? If so, we want to hear from you! This session will consist of 5 rapid-fire presentations, which are designed to share ideas to improve care. The aim is for these presentations to be short (3 minutes), sharp, informative and above all, fun! We hope to leave delegates with at least one good, practical idea to implement in their own practice.
