Session types

The format of presentation depends on the session you will present your abstract in:
• Poster Session (PPT presentation with discussion on stage)
• Expert-guided Poster Tour (poster presented with discussion at the poster board)
• Video Session (video with discussion on stage)

The format of the Video Session

In the video session the submitted videos of max. 10 minutes will be shown, followed by 5 minutes discussion. The presenter or the video narrative highlights the role of the nurse.

The format of the Expert-guided Poster Tour

In this poster session format, physical posters will be presented in a concise format at the poster board. Two experts will guide the session by means of questions and discussions. The complete session will be 30 minutes, each poster will be presented for 2 minutes followed by 2 minutes of discussion. There will be no PowerPoint presentations.

The format of a Poster Session

    1. Poster viewing at the poster boards
    2. Introduction by session chair on stage (4 minutes)
    3. PowerPoint presentations on stage (6 minutes for PPT presentation and 2 minutes for discussion per presenter)

A poster session is an interactive discussion. During the poster viewing, at the beginning of the session, groups gather at the various posters and move from one to the next, discussing their findings with the authors. This permits a one-to-one exchange of ideas. After the poster viewing, the poster presenters will present their PPT presentation on stage followed by an interactive discussion.

Date, time and place are listed in the online programme. You will be responsible for mounting your poster on the assigned poster board with the available push pins 15 min. prior to the start of the poster viewing. An abstract presenter must attend the whole poster session in which he/she is scheduled. The quality of the meeting is extremely dependent on the calibre of the presenters and their posters.

The EAUN Scientific Committee requests that you declare any relevant links to the industry in relation to your presentation or other conflicts of interests at the beginning of your presentation (in slide 2).
