Call For Abstracts

Submission of abstracts to local, national, and international conferences is an excellent way to showcase the work of University of Chicago Medicine nurses involved in innovative quality, evidence-based practice, and research initiatives.

Participation in conferences also provides UCM nurses a window into the wider world of what is being done in their respective areas by nurses outside our UCM walls.  Below is a current list of open calls for abstracts.

We encourage you to submit your work whenever possible.

Please contact the Nursing Evidence-based Practice and Research Council if you need assistance creating an abstract for your nursing-led project.
