  • 2021 Call for Poster Abstracts

    Share your expertise with the Home Care Medicine community by submitting a poster abstract for the 2021 Annual Meeting Poster Hall. 

    Don't delay - the deadline for 2021 Poster Abstracts is June 25, 2021. 

    Submission Type
    AAHCM supports two categories of submission: Clinical or Research.

    Clinical abstracts should be either (1) clinical vignettes or (2) single practice innovations. Clinical vignettes could include unique presentations of common diseases, unusual clinical findings, as well as challenging patient and/or family encounters. Vignettes may also include unique or innovative solutions to patient and/or family needs. Practice innovations could include novel ways to meet the clinical and non-clinical needs of patients and families as well as operational improvements leading to better outcomes. All practice innovations should provide replicable ideas for implementation at other home-based medical care practices.

    Scientific abstracts should present the results of purposeful and systematic research aimed at better understanding the field of home-based medical care. Research could include epidemiological or health services investigations of patients and/or caregivers. Research could include studies sharing insights on quality, patient outcomes, cost of care, and/or patient experience. Abstracts in this category must have replicable methods, clear analytic approaches, and data for presentation.
