Poster Session Guidelines
To Be Determined
Abstracts may be submitted in one of two categories: (1) research or (2) clinical vignettes. Only original vignettes that have not been presented at a prior hospitalist meeting will be considered.
Submissions can report clinical and/or laboratory-based research. Research abstracts concerned with efficiency, cost, method of health care delivery, quality of care, and medical decision-making are also encouraged. Substance of the research should be relevant to hospital medicine.
Clinical Vignette Competition
A clinical vignette is a report of one or more cases that illustrate a new disease entity, a prominent or unusual clinical feature of an established disease, highlight an area of clinical controversy in hospital medicine, or illustrate a unique patient safety issue. It may include a summary of pertinent patient history, physical findings, laboratory data, or management description. It should be clear from the discussion portion of the abstract why the vignette is most appropriate for a hospital medicine as opposed to general internal medicine.
