National Share the Experience (NSTE) 2018 Conference

Call for Abstracts

The Respecting Choices® National Share the Experience (NSTE) Scientific Review Committee invites the submission of abstracts of original work to support this year’s conference theme:

“Improving Person-Centered Outcomes through Collaboration”

The NSTE 2018 conference will be held October 23-26 at the Minneapolis Airport Marriott, Bloomington, MN. Abstract submissions will be accepted until April 16, 2018.

The conference aligns with Respecting Choices’ mission to guide organizations and communities worldwide to effectively implement and sustain evidence-based systems that provide person-centered care (PCC). Through the promotion of collective learning and networking, this conference will help achieve the vision of transforming healthcare culture through organizations integrating and disseminating best practices of PCC.

The purpose of the NSTE 2018 conference is to share best practices and learnings from evidence-based Respecting Choices programs who jointly collaborate by combining complementary advance care planning (ACP) and shared decision-making (SDM) programs. Resulting efforts lead to change and further the advancement of person-centered care outcomes. The collaboration of PCC strategies may occur among individual, family, clinical, programmatic, educational, organizational, financial, legal, ethical, research, or policy perspectives.
