An abstract describes the findings of research that you conducted or participated in, but in an abbreviated form. For this submission type you will compile and analyse data from an experiment or an audit of medical charts that you conducted. Then you will discuss the implications of these findings and their potential impact on your field of interest. Standalone abstracts should be no longer than 350 words.

Begin by briefly stating the purpose of your research, giving one or two key pieces of background for context. Then state your hypothesis and describe your methods. Summarize your principle findings and outline your major conclusions. Finish by stating how this research contributes to the field or what research question should follow.
