Oral and Poster Presentations can be case studies, descriptions of programmes, formal research projects, ethical issues, highlighting service related problems, new ideas in prevention or care, etc. Oral presentations are 15 minutes with 5 minutes discussion or time for questions. Posters should be accompanied by an oral presentation of 10 minutes, including time for questions. Poster size: A0 (preferably portrait orientation). No A-V equipment.
Workshop presentations should always include active participation of the delegates and so need to be either developing a skill, group exercises to understand concepts/issues, strategic planning etc. A series of oral presentations on the same topic is NOT a workshop. Workshop times are either 60 or 90 minutes. It is possible to have 2 workshop times back to back but this can only be confirmed once the draft programme is developed. Longer Pre-Conference Workshops are possible but require separate CPD points and must have a confirmed delegate list. Pre-Conference Workshops must be in partnership with one of the Conference Partners (RuDASA, RuReSA,PACASA or RuNurSA). These workshops can be attended by a wider range of people who do not have to sign up for the entire conference i.e. they can just attend the Pre-Conference Workshop.
Keynote speakers are specially invited by the RHC Committee to lead a sub theme at the conference.
Panel discussions: 30 - 60 minutes depending on number of panelists
Plenaries : 60 minutes and should be suitable for a multidisciplinary audience
A-V equipment is available for all keynotes, oral presentations, panels, plenaries and workshops
If you think your presentation fulfils the criteria for ethics points, please give reasons.
