The Nurse Practitioner Alliance of Alabama (NPAA) will hold its 11th Annual Advanced Nursing Practice Conference on October 27-28th, 2017 at the Hyatt Wynfrey Conference Center in Birmingham, AL (located at Galleria Mall).

NPAA cordially invites you to submit an abstract in evidence-based practice to be considered for a podium presentation at the 2017 conference. Please note that presentations should include best practices in advanced nursing practice, and include updates in pharmacological treatment and advances related to the topic. Scholarly projects, original research, and quality improvement projects with outcome data are also of interest to the panel.


Submission Deadline

Materials must be received by NPAA by Friday April 14, 2017.

Submission Format

All abstracts, not to exceed one page, are to be submitted to the NPAA Conference Program Committee by email at . Abstracts should include a minimum of 3 learning objectives. Submissions should contain two documents. The first document should list presenter name(s), contact information, and a brief bio, citing the educational background, work history, and expertise in the content area of the abstract for the author(s). The second document should include the title, abstract and learning objectives without identifying information.

Abstract Selection and Notification

The Program Committee will meet in late April 2017 to select abstracts and to finalize the conference program. For each podium abstract accepted, the Program Committee will assign the time and date of presentation on the conference schedule.


If your abstract is accepted for presentation, you will be notified by email on or around May 15, 2017 of your presentation date and time. This notice will be sent to the contact person for each abstract and to the presenting author of each individual podium or poster session. If the abstract has more than one author, the contact person is asked to share the information with the other author(s). (See section on “Information after Abstracts Are Selected” below for more details about procedures following the selection process.)

Conference Registration

Podium presenters will receive complimentary registration to the conference. If the primary author is unable to attend the conference and has made arrangements for someone else to present, notification of a substitute presenter must be made by August 1, 2017.

Selection Criteria

Abstracts should reflect or include:

  • Presentations highlighting pharmacological interventions
  • Practice problem, purposes/aims, disease process/background
  • Assessment, current treatment including pharmacological treatment and advances
  • Outcomes achieved/documented, and patient evaluation
  • Conclusions, emphasizing implications for clinical or educational practices



Podium: In general, each abstract in a podium session is allotted 50 minutes for presentation, with 5 minutes for audience questions. Presentations will occur in the order they appear in the program.


Each contact person will be notified about the Program Committee’s decision on acceptance of an abstract. Each author is asked to accept the invitation to present by responding to the email invitation within 10 days. We ask that presenters take very seriously their commitment to present, except in cases of true emergencies.
