Call for Abstracts MPN Horizons 2021 – Virtual
With COVID-19 having such a profound impact across the world, this year MPN Horizons have dedicated a session on this subject, to be held on Friday 22nd October during Medical and Advocacy Session #1: COVID-19 and MPN – What have we learned?, titled: “How has your organisation adapted to COVID-19 and what have you learned so far, that can be used in the future when the pandemic is over.”
The presentations should describe how COVID-19 has Impacted your patient organization, the particular challenge(s) that was faced, and how your organisation solved them. Other MPN patient organisations could learn from your case study and may be inspired to do something similar. You should also share what went right and potentially what went wrong and what you would do differently next time. The presentations should NOT be about your organisation as such.
Participants are now invited to submit abstracts for this session until 22nd October. The MPN Abstract Committee will then review all abstracts and select those that will be presented during the session.
What is the format of the session? How am I expected to present?
Impact on patient organisations case studies will consist of a short (maximum 10 minutes, maximum 8 slides) presentation covering a case study as described above. Once the entire session is over there will be Q & A on the session which will also include your talk. The presentations should not be about the organisation but about how your organisation has adapted to COVID-19 and what can be learned from this.
How can I submit an abstract?
