Paper presentations are 20 minutes (including Q&A) conference sessions where presenters may share their professional views or research on topics relevant to pediatric hematology/oncology nursing. The overall goal for paper sessions is to 1) identify original and innovative ideas relevant to pediatric hematology/oncology nursing, and 2) discuss the results of the projects and how they can be applied to pediatric hematology/oncology nursing practice.

Posters will be mounted on 4'x 7' boards provided by APHON and available for viewing in the exhibit area throughout scheduled exhibit hours. The conference objective for the poster session is to provide new information that can be applied to pediatric hematology/oncology nursing practice. Prizes (first, second, third, and People's Choice) will be awarded on-site for top-rated posters as determined by a panel of reviewers.

Paper abstracts will only be considered if the project is complete; poster abstracts will be considered if the work is in progress.
