Abstracts for the 2018 AMERSA National Conference may be submitted to one of three categories:

    Research – These abstracts report on original research and must include methods, data analyses, and results.
    Curricula, Quality Improvement, and Program – These abstracts report on evaluations of education curricula, quality improvement, and/or innovative program initiatives and must include methods, data analyses, and results.
    Clinical Case Presentations – These abstracts describe an illustrative case that reinforces specific learning objectives for substance use and education.

Abstract presentation formats include:

    Oral presentations are clustered into concurrent theme-based 60-90-minute sessions with each abstract presentation ten minutes in duration followed by an additional 5 minute question/answer period. These will be scheduled on Thursday, November 8th and Saturday, November 10th.
    Poster presentations are displayed during a 90-minute evening poster reception with the attendant author(s) available to discuss and present the poster. These will be scheduled Thursday evening.
    Abstract awards are presented to the 2 best abstracts (1 in the Research category and 1 in the Curricula, Quality Improvement, and Program Innovations category) as well as a runner-up award in each of these 2 categories.

Note that some curriculum, quality improvement, or program innovations may best be presented as a workshop submission, not abstract, in order to capitalize on time for detailed discussion or skills development. See the CALL FOR SKILL-BASED WORKSHOPS section.

ONLY COMPLETE ABSTRACTS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR PRESENTATION. ABSTRACTS DESCRIBING PROJECTS WHICH ARE IN PROGRESS AND LACK DATA ANALYSIS AND RESULTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. To be considered complete, abstracts must describe a completed research project, including descriptions of methods, results and conclusions; a completed program and curricula evaluation abstract, including evaluation methods, findings and conclusions; or a clinical case, with specific learning objectives that are generalizable and supported by the case.

Abstracts which meet these criteria and are accepted for presentation will be e-published in AMERSA’s peer-reviewed journal, Substance Abuse. Abstract authors are also encouraged to submit a manuscript of their work for consideration for publication in Substance Abuse.
