Call for Student Posters



Pioneer Network is an organization that calls for radical change in the culture of aging so that when our grandparents, parents — and ultimately ourselves — go to a nursing home or other community-based setting it is to thrive, not to decline. Pioneer Network is working towards a culture of aging that supports the care of elders in settings where individual voices are heard and individual choices are respected — wherever elders choose to live.



Pioneer Network invites students to submit an abstract for a poster at the Pioneer Network 2015 National Conference that will be held in Chicago, IL, August 2-5, 2015.

We are seeking posters on projects or research specific to aging and related to topics such as the following:
  • Organizational practices that support person-directed care for elders and/or empowerment and engagement of staff that provide care for elders
  • Care practices that support person-directed care for elders
  • Environmental approaches to support person-directed care for elders
  • Supporting relationships between elders needing care and support and those providing that care and support
  • Measurement of person-directed care (individual or at the organizational level)
  • Person-directed care and the tension between autonomy and risk
  • Consumer engagement and education about person-directed care
  • Evaluation of person-directed models of care
  • Business case for person-directed care
Abstracts will be accepted until April 15, 2015. Include the following in your 1-page abstract:
  • Title
  • Author(s)
  • Purpose of project/research
  • Description of project/research
  • Conclusions/findings of project/research

Submit your abstract to: info@pioneernetwork.net.

If you have questions, contact Lynda.crandall@pioneernetwork.net

You will be notified by May 1, 2015 if your abstract has been accepted for a poster presentation. If you agree to present your poster, you are responsible for paying the cost of the conference registration (early registration rates end May 15). Pioneer Network will hold a special session for students attending the conference to network and learn more about the Pioneer Network.

The annual Pioneer Network conferences are highly rated year after year. Take a look at some of the past conferences.
