Abstract Contest


It is often difficult to obtain funding to attend conferences, workshops, etc., that are of interest to us. The CACPT has an Abstract Contest every year in order to help it´s members defray some of the cost to attend the Canadian Cardiovascular Conference (CCC).

Contest rules are as follows:
· Any and all ideas for papers are acceptable; current research ongoing in your facility, creative acceptable alternatives to current practices, newly discovered/invented products and/or processes, modes of therapy, relevant pharmaceutical advances, cost saving advances, enlightening statistics... You get the idea!
· Contest is open to all current members of the CACPT.
· Articles/research/technical papers must be submitted by August 1, 2012.
· Judging of all submissions will be by the CACPT Board of Directors.
· Two candidates will be chosen, one from the field of Cardiovascular Technology and the other from Pulmonary Technology.
· The price is $300.00 to help offset the cost of attending annual CACPT/CCC conference where the winners must agree to present his/her paper. The conference this year is in Torono, Ontario, October 27, 2012.
