2nd Annual International Research Symposium

Just like this past year – presentations will be short (15-20 minutes) and focus on neuro-nurse-research. The symposium will cover the research spectrum and include 1. Planned proposals and ideas 2. Works in progress 3. Works in data analysis or manuscript preparation phase 4. Completed research studies We are looking for speakers. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to cover expenses nor provide honoraria. If you or a nurse you know has work – this will be a great venue. We will be sending out a call for poster abstracts (we hope you keep this in mind for students and trainees with research work in neuro). Just as the symposium covers works in progress and completed works, posters will be allowed to include WIPs and Completed studies.
