Instructions for Preparing Your Submission

The National Center invites interested parties to submit abstracts for the Nexus Summit 2020 in four different areas: Seminars, Lightning Talks, Professional Posters and Interprofessional Student Posters.

Step One: Identify submission type

You may submit abstracts for more than one submission type. A new submission will need to be completed for each submission type.

Seminars

Seminars are 60-minute deep-dive, live and virtual workshops on the work you’ve done to advance the field of interprofessional education and collaborative practice, contributing skills and knowledge to attendees. Instructions and guidance on the virtual delivery platforms will be sent to accepted presenters after the peer review.

Seminar leaders will offer actionable knowledge and will present specific skills or models that optimize practice in the interprofessional clinical learning environment, develop leadership and mentorship, design and evaluate interprofessions programs or initiatives, or integrate patients/people and families into collaborative care. Seminars will highlight scalable or scaled initiatives and demonstrate outcomes. Attendees will leave with practical skills to apply back home. Presenters are encouraged to plan most of the seminar time in active learning and skill building, particularly designed for an online live workshop experience.

 

Lightning Talk

At the virtual Nexus Summit 2020, Lightning Talks will include a 15-minute pre-recorded presentation (around 10 slides recommended) and a live discussion during the Core Nexus Summit 2020. More information on recording methods will be given to accepted presenters after the peer review.

Presenters are encouraged to focus their presentations to maximize impact in a short period of time. Share your research, practical model, lessons learned, evaluation structure and data, outcomes, or innovative design in a dynamic, short presentation format.

 

Professional Poster

Poster presentations are designed for presenters to interact with attendees and share and present research, innovation, practice models, evaluation models and results, policy proposals, and more. This is an opportunity for individuals or organizations to present data, outcomes, and evidence resulting from interprofessional practice and education initiatives.

Posters at the virtual Nexus Summit 2020 will be delivered by short, pre-recorded video presentations using FlipGrid, and attendees can view and respond to poster presentations by recording their own video questions and comments. More information on recording and presentation of posters will be given to accepted presenters after the peer review.

 

Interprofessional Student Poster

Student attendees of the Nexus Summit 2020 are encouraged to submit abstracts for student poster presentations. Student posters will be specifically highlighted in the schedule, and all student posters will be reviewed by a committee of reviewers with interprofessional practice and education expertise. The rich feedback resulting from this review will support student learning and contribute to the selection of one student poster to receive the Interprofessional Student Poster Award at the Nexus Summit.

Posters at the virtual Nexus Summit 2020 will be delivered by short, pre-recorded video presentations using FlipGrid, and attendees can view and respond to poster presentations by recording their own video questions and comments. More information on recording and presentation of posters will be given to accepted presenters after the peer review.

 


Step Two: Review criteria for abstract submission

Please refer to the Call for Abstracts on the Nexus Summit 2020 homepage for complete submission details.

 


Step Three: Review presenter expectations

Presenter expectations

All presenting authors must register and attend the virtual Nexus Summit 2020. Presenters are responsible for their own conference registration fees. Audio/video recordings will be made of all accepted presentations. Your submission of an abstract constitutes your agreement that recording can be made and distributed by the National Center. All correspondence (primarily through email) will be sent to lead presenters identified in the abstract. Final versions of all accepted presentation materials must be submitted in PDF format after the virtual Nexus Summit.

Additionally, all abstracts will be evaluated for Jointly Accredited Interprofessional Continuing Education Credit. Therefore, presenters will be asked to disclose any potential conflict(s) of interest related to the content to be offered (e.g., commercial interest, affiliation with a vendor, and/or receipt of royalties) and affirm that their abstract presentations will not be used to sell a particular product or service. Seminar and Lightning Talk PowerPoint presentations will be required to be submitted no less than three weeks prior to the Nexus Summit 2020 for accreditation and presentation.

Please contact ipceapps@umn.edu with any questions about the submission process or format. Robust instructions and guidance will be given to accepted presenters to support the transition of content to virtual formats for Nexus Summit 2020.


Submission Process

The submission portal will open and be linked from this page on February 12, 2020. The early submission deadline is May 15, but rolling submissions will be accepted for peer review through June 5, 2020. All abstract submissions will be completed online through this portal, which will guide you through the process. Presenters may access the site as often as they like to modify the document until they officially submit the abstract, on or before the final submission deadline.
