2019 PPAG Fall Conference 

Call for Abstracts

All practitioners, investigators, post-doctoral trainees, and students in the field of pediatric clinical pharmacy, whether members of PPAG or not, are invited to submit abstracts of papers to be considered for platform or poster presentation at the Fall Conference in Lexington, Kentucky. Poster Presentations are informal discussions of current projects in pharmacy practice with meeting attendees. It is your opportunity to share your research or successful programs that have worked in pediatric healthcare systems, and to pick up ideas from others. This page will assist you in preparing your abstract for submission. Thank you for your interest in presenting at the PPAG Annual Meeting. 

The deadline to submit your abstracts is July 15, 2019.

Abstract Categories:

Scientific Abstracts: Scientific abstracts presented at PPAG report the results of a scientific investigation or a clinical observation involving some aspect of pharmacotherapy. Scientific investigations can be either clinical, basic, or translational and are either hypothesis-driven or descriptive in nature. To be accepted for presentation, research abstracts must have final results. Abstracts without results will not be accepted in this category. Encore presentations will be accepted, but will not be published in the Journal of Pediatric Pharmacology and Therapeutics. 

Practice Abstracts: Best and Innovative Pediatric Pharmacy Practice Abstracts typically describe programs, systems, or projects that are creative, cost-effective, and improve practice in pediatric pharmacy. Practice Abstracts should include sufficient details about the rationale, process, and hypothesis of the impact should the program, system, or project be implemented. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Journal of Pediatric Pharmacology and Therapeutics. Submissions should include any pictures, graphs, figures and data tables that supports the summary. Each of these must be clearly labeled and described.​ Encore presentations will be accepted, but will not be published. 

Teaching and Preceptor Development: Teaching abstracts describe innovated education programs that improve pediatric pharmacy practice. Abstracts may highlight educational programs with different audiences (i.e. PharmD students, residents, patients, caregivers, pharmacists). Scholarship of Teaching abstracts should include sufficient details about the rationale, process, and hypothesis of the impact should the program, system, or project be implemented. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Journal of Pediatric Pharmacology and Therapeutics. Submissions should include any pictures, graphs, figures and data tables that supports the summary. Each of these must be clearly labeled and described.​ Encore presentations will be accepted, but not published. 

Student Research: Primary investigators who are currently enrolled in a BSPharm or PharmD program can submit their project within this category. Projects are not limited to a specific research or practice area. Students may submit Research-In-Progress abstracts. However, you must be able to present results during the poster session at the FallConference. Only completed abstracts will be published in the Journal of Pediatric Pharmacology and Therapeutics.
