ABSTRACT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Sorry. we are no longer accepting abstracts for this conference..
AACE/EACE/CPEN 2012 Joint Annual Meeting is now accepting abstracts with a particular interest in work that emphasizes the impact the cancer education curriculum, program and/or initiative has made on its targeted learners in the following areas of the cancer continuum:
- Prevention, including risk factor reduction and special populations
- Early Detection, including screening strategies
- Treatment, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery, complementary and integrative medicine
- Survivorship, including patient and provider education and how these change over time
- Palliative Care and End-of-Life Care, including pain and other symptom control and effective communication strategies
Additionally, focal areas for abstract submission along that continuum encompass:
- From Theory to Practice: The focus of this section is to look at innovative ways that theory or theoretical frameworks have contributed to the development of successful education programs
- Global Cancer Education: The objective is to explore opportunities for cancer education and collaboration around the world including educational methods in developing countries and learning new, global approaches to improve local issues
- Integrating New Technologies in Cancer Education: The subject has multiple foci including evaluating new and innovative types of electronic resources that practitioners may use, hearing outcomes from researchers that have studied the effect of using these technologies with patients and health care providers, and how recent technological methods should be applied in cancer education with regard to access to care and medical services
- Health Literacy/Communication across the Cancer Spectrum: The focus lies on culturally- and linguistically-appropriate cancer education that also meets the needs of patients/families with low literacy skills. This includes the evaluation of how health literacy impacts cancer prevention
