Submit a Poster Abstract

Present your research at EAUN21 in Milan

‘Don’t miss such a unique opportunity!!’

The EAUN invites urology nurses and other professionals to submit a poster abstract on a topic relevant to urology, continence, oncology, nursing or a related field. You can choose to submit a Poster Abstract or a Video Abstract. Please check the information below before you submit.

Abstract topics

The EAUN is committed to the development of an ever expanding body of knowledge in urological care and to raising the quality of care provided to those we serve through two broad routes, namely research (the creation of new evidence via a formal research study, primary research) and practice-development (the application of evidence to innovative / novel practice). We welcome abstracts from both of these inter-related areas as we value the importance of both equally, seeing them as critical to the development of our profession of nursing. Accordingly, you may enter abstracts under two broad categories; research method abstracts or practice-development abstracts.

Science-oriented (primary research) abstracts: Presentation of information in research abstracts follows the accepted research method process and can relate to both quantitative and qualitative research abstracts.

Practice-development oriented abstracts: Abstracts submitted here will present information / data on completed or ongoing practice-development initiatives or innovative urological nursing practices which are NOT part of a formal research study. Urological nursing occurs in many different areas and abstracts are welcome from all perspectives. In the abstract state the objective of the practice development initiative, the process(es) undertaken, and any materials and methods used. Whilst abstracts about ongoing initiatives are welcome, it is necessary to include information on the way in which you will / have evaluated the impact and effectiveness of your initiative and its implication for practice.


The difference between Poster Session and the Expert-guided Poster Tour

Poster Sessions (with slides)

In the two Poster Sessions 18 delegates get a chance to present their recent work. The aim is to discuss practical topics, relevant clinical issues, and findings from research conducted by doctors and nurses and applied to everyday practice. Different fields of urology will be covered, as well as related issues. Science-oriented and Practice-development oriented abstracts will be rated separately. Four prize winners will be chosen for the best presentations; two for practice-development, two for scientific posters. The authors of the 18 highest ranked abstracts are invited to present in one of the 2 Poster Sessions. They will be asked to bring a poster and present slides.

Expert-guided Poster Tour (without slides)

Furthermore, abstract presenters, that prefer to present in the Expert-guided Poster Tour, are invited to display their poster at the poster boards and present it in 2 minutes. These presenters do not have to present slides.

During this session, the session chairs will visit each poster and discuss it with the author during 2 minutes. The audience can pose questions and add to the discussion on what is presented.

The aim of this session is to support nurses that are new to abstract submission and poster viewing and enable them to share experience, practice or literature review. The chair will give additional insights on how to interpret the content and enhance the quality of the abstract and poster design.

During the abstract submission, you can choose to present in either a Poster Session or the Expert-guided Poster Tour.

Video Session

Accepted videos will be shown by the presenter in the meeting room during the Video Session. Check the page Submit a Video Abstract for more information.
