IACRN 14th Annual Conference
October 17 - 19, 2022
2022 Call For Roundtable Submissions
What is a conference Roundtable?
The main purpose of a conference Roundtable is to have a small discussion and explore a specific topic or issue with a small group of people. It consists of 8-10 attendees literally sitting around a table. The discussion leader gives a brief (5-10 minute) introduction to provide some background and set the stave for the Roundtable attendee discussion. As the discussion leader, you will moderate the discussion that follows amongst the participants and facilitate engagement by coming prepared with 3-5 discussion questions. The ultimate goal is for the discussion leader and Roundtable participants to leave with some new information and new perspectives on the Roundtable topic. It is an excellent venue for giving and receiving targeted feedback, engaging in in-depth discussions, and networking with Clinical Research Nurses who share similar interests.
Session Length: Each Roundtable session is 30 minutes in length; followed by a short break and, after the break, your Roundtable session will be repeated with a new group of attendees for a total of 2 back-to-back sessions.
Handouts are encouraged and can be used to help aide in the discussion, share key points, list resources, etc. (Note: There is no projection available during these sessions.)
Preparation: Although Roundtables rely heavily on discussion, this does not negate the need for advanced preparation. You should develop the introduction portion of your session and practice it until you are comfortable and can clearly share your thoughts and ideas.
Questions: While your attendees may be eager with questions after your presentation, please prepare 3-5 open-ended questions that you can use if needed to help stimulate the discussion. Questions may be directed to the discussion leader and/or the attendees at the session, encouraging their participation, feedback, and the sharing of lessons learned.
You are invited to submit your Roundtable for the IACRN 14th Annual Conference
