The goals are to:

  • Discuss emerging theory-driven directions for enhancing partnership between patients and practitioners

The Langston Center seeks presentations to describe innovations that support partnering with patients and families to improve health care quality.

Abstracts should describe the purpose or goals of the project, a description of the methods, programs, or practices utilized, and current results or conclusions, as appropriate. The works of faculty, educators, practitioners and students are welcome. Abstracts are limited to 300 words and may include works in progress. Only abstracts submitted online before close of business Friday, Aug. 4 will be considered.
