CFP: CANS 2016

Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science 2016 State of the Science Congress

PROPOSAL SUBMISSIONS DUE by DECEMBER 1st, 2015

As part of the celebration of the 15th Anniversary of Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science (CANS), teams of experts will have an opportunity to present a synthesis of evidence in an area consistent with the State of the Science (SOS) theme “Determinants of Health”. CANS believes that determinants of health are more than social factors. Determinants include social/environmental, behavioral/life style, and omics. Each presentation will be 1 hour in length and should synthesize the evidence, briefly describe the policy implications, and recommend initiatives to further advance the science in the area of the review.  An opportunity to publish in Nursing Outlook is anticipated.

If you have questions, contact 15th Anniversary Task Force Chair: Patricia Underwood at pwu@case.edu or 216-905-5903.                

Interested parties are invited to complete the following proposal and submit it via email by December 1, 2015 to Holli DeVon, Science Committee Chair, at hdevon1@uic.edu.
