Request for Proposals
Pioneer Network's 2012 National Conference
Thank you for your interest in being a guide and/or presenter at Pioneer Network's 2012 National Conference. The deadline for submissions has passed. Thank
|Before You Begin|
Here are a few tips
collected from past reviewers and planning committee members ~
| 1. You may start a proposal and then come back to it within 30 days to
complete. Suggestion – download and print the .pdf of the form HERE
so you know what you will need to complete it. |
2. Ask yourself
– is your session for specifically for a conference on culture change –
or something that could be at any health-related conference? Does your
session relate well to our 2012 Areas of Focus?
3. Think about
your audience as you write the proposal -- Describe how your session
will be interactive and inspiring and use multiple teaching methods.
Quantify -- Do you have evidence that your approach works - i.e.
satisfaction surveys, changes in quality measures, etc. Write your
session description succinctly and precisely; and please be sure that
your objectives have outcomes.
5. Challenge yourself -- Are you
sharing "how" to change the culture more than "why" you should change
6. Be Clear -- Explain how your session
specifically supports person-directed care (this could be through
policy, process or new information) Don't try to share too much
information in too short a time.
7. Be Authentic – For example,
if your session is about universal workers; we'd like to see a universal
worker in that session.
8. Make a lasting impression -- Is your
session going to provide tools people can take home with them?
Honesty is the best policy -- Will your session describe both the
successes and stumbles of the process of change?
Count! Reread your proposal information before sending it. Reviewers do
not like not poor grammar or misspelled words.
|Please do not use these words in your objectives. |
