Abstract submission must be completed via the link above.

Abstracts must relate to one of the following categories:

Research

Quality Initiative

  • Purpose of the project

  • Relevant background – why is this a problem? What does the literature tell us?

  • Methods - what did you do to conduct the study/project?

  • Data analysis – what statistical tests were used?

  • Results – what did the data reveal?

  • Implications – how might these data be used to change practice or guide further research? 

Clinical Practice

Program Initiatives

  • Thorough description of the clinical presentation or situation

  • Synthesis of relevant literature

  • Description of intervention(s) provided

  • Outcome of the intervention/situation

  • Implications for practice (clinical/administrative)

The first author is considered the primary author, is responsible for the content and integrity of the project, and will serve as the contact person by the AVAHO administrator and Planning Committee.  Authors may submit more than one abstract; however, they may be first author on only one abstract.  At least one author must be a member of AVAHO.  Accepted abstracts will be published in a special edition of Federal Practitioner.

Applicants are encouraged to review the instructions below prior to developing the abstract. So that continuing education credits can be awarded for the poster session, all authors must complete relevant disclosure forms as delineated on the abstract submission form. 

All abstracts will be scored by a blind-review process.  Data from for-profit or industry sources are not permitted.  Abstracts should be free from commercial bias; promotional abstracts will not be accepted.
