Brag and Steal Submission Guidelines

Submissions for Brag and Steal brief 5-minute presentations in the area of Rehabilitation will be accepted from March 6th to April 28th, 2017. The Rehabilitation Brag and Steal session will take place on Monday, September 11th from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm (subject to change).

Criteria and requirements for submissions have been put in place to ensure the session is distinct from the regular Congress programming. This is not a forum for submitting scientific abstracts and topics submitted for an abstract should not also be submitted for a brag and steal.

Brag and Steal proposals will be reviewed and accepted based on a number of criteria, including:

  • Overall fit with the Canadian Stroke Congress objectives
  • High-level of innovation and collaboration in addressing an identified issue or opportunity
  • Relevance to and alignment with the Canadian Stroke Best Practice Recommendations
  • Demonstrate a practical application, resource, or tool that can be shared with Canadian Stroke Congress delegates and others
  • Applicability for use in various settings, regions, or provinces by stroke professionals, researchers, or system managers
  • Demonstrate ‘the latest and greatest’ in the field of rehabilitation
  • Be limited to 200 words (excluding title and authors)
  • May be submitted in English or French, and presentations may be given in either language

The author/submitter for the submissions selected for presentation at the 2017 Canadian Stroke Congress will be contacted by May 26, 2017.

Presentations based on the accepted Brag and Steal submissions must meet the following additional criteria:

  • Have only one (1) presenter per presentation. Presenters must register for the Congress and will be required to pay the appropriate registration fee
  • Be no more than five (5) minutes in length, ideally less to allow for questions and comments from the audience
  • Include one (1) to three (3) slides for projection during the presentation with the following information:
    1. The problem, issue, or opportunity being addressed through innovation and collaboration;
    2. The activity, solution, or resource developed to address the problem, issue, or opportunity; and
    3. Where the audience can access the resource or get more information about the activity or solution, including contact information and, if appropriate, a website url.
