Abstract Portal Overview
To help submitters become acquainted with the online abstract submission portal, please read through the information below. For the best user experience, recommended browsers include Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
Due to recent GDPR compliance policies, all users will be required to initially create a new account profile by clicking "Join Now" for your first submission. This account profile will be the contact person for all submissions associated with this account. This person is not required to be the primary presenter of submitted abstracts.
After you have created your account, you will receive an e-mail which will contain your login information for your account, including your access key. Returning users may click the “Lost your access key” link under the user login to access this information again at a later time.
You will be able to create and edit your submissions. To get started, click the green link that says “Click here to begin a new Submission.”
Starting a New Submission

Good to Know: For additional details, click on the blue links below the Submission Type and Submission Category drop downs.
Starting with “Presenter Information”, you will need to complete each of these sections in order to complete your abstract submission. A green checkbox will appear next to each task as it has been completed.

The submitter will need to create a presenter profile for each presenter related to the presentation, including themselves if they plan to present. After a presenter profile has been initially created, it may be accessed again and updated at a later time.
Each submission is required to have a minimum of 1 presenter with the “Primary Presenter role”. The submitter will assign this role when they add a presenter.
If the submitter would prefer to have each presenter complete their individual presenter profile, click on the blue bubble to send an auto-generated email. After all information has been completed in the presenter profile, a green check mark will appear next to the presenter’s name on the “Presenter Information” page.
Good to Know: The submitter will be responsible for following up with all presenters to make sure they have completed all requested information in their presenter profile.

Paper presentations are 20 minute (including Q&A) conference sessions where presenters may share their professional views or research on topics relevant to pediatric hematology/oncology nursing. The overall goal for paper sessions is to 1) identify original and innovative ideas relevant to pediatric hematology/oncology nursing; and 2) discuss the results of the projects and how they can be applied to pediatric hematology/oncology nursing practice.
Posters will be mounted on 4'x 7' boards provided by APHON and available for viewing in the exhibit area throughout scheduled exhibit hours. The conference objective for the poster session is to provide new information that can be applied to pediatric hematology/oncology nursing practice. Prizes (first, second, third, and People's Choice) will be awarded on-site for top-rated posters as determined by a panel of reviewers.
Paper abstracts will only be considered if the project is complete; poster abstracts will be considered if the work is in progress.
