The 3rd Annual Canadian Paramedicine Research Day
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
The Canadian Paramedicine Research Day highlights paramedicine-related research from across the country and internationally, exhibits new knowledge, and stimulates thought and discussion on diverse areas of paramedicine. All contributors to paramedicine research are invited to showcase their work.
The organizing committee is encouraging researchers to submit abstracts with preliminary or completed paramedicine-related research that has not been published as a manuscript more than 90 days prior to the research day. The review committee will select submitted abstracts for an oral presentation, with the remaining selected for a virtual “poster room”. Awards will be given for top ranking oral presentations and posters. We will also have an “emerging investigator” award for the best abstract by a student. At this time no quality improvement or program evaluation projects are being accepted. Please contact email@example.com if you are unsure if your project constitutes research.
Notifications of the results of the abstract competition will be sent on or about April 18th 2024. Oral presentations will be either allotted a 10-minute plenary presentation followed by five minutes for questions, or seven minutes for presentation followed by three minutes for questions depending on ranking. Accepted oral presentations will be submitted as a pre-recorded presentation prior to the research day. Presenters will be required to be available during their presentation time on the day for Q&A. Accepted poster presentations will be required to submit a brief (five minute maximum) pre-recorded presentation to be uploaded along with their virtual poster.
DEADLINE is 16:00 hours EDT on March 18th, 2024
