ACCYPN Call for Abstracts – Extended Now Closing Monday 30 April 2018

Wednesday, 28th March 2018

We have extended Abstract Submissions after receiving a number of requests to allow late abstract Submissions.  This extension will also allow the Perth Children’s Hospital staff additional time to submit in what is a very busy time planning for the big move.

We would like to encourage first-time presenters to submit an abstract.  Why not consider an abstract about innovative practices of Clinicians who make a difference to the lives of our clients and their families. We encourage you to submit abstracts on your current innovative work. What is working well?
