Members wishing to submit a poster should use the online submission form
. The deadline for submissions is February 2, 2011. Please direct any questions to Trish Wegner at TrishW@ichpnet.org
.BODY OF ABSTRACT
Type double-spaced on separate sheet. Do not exceed 250 words. Do not include tables and figures. Organize abstracts in the research category under the following headings: Purpose, Methods, Summary of Results, and Conclusions. Presentations submitted as research-in-progress can omit the headings of Summary of Results and Conclusions .REVIEW OF SUBMISSIONS
All submissions from eligible authors received by the designated deadline will be reviewed anonymously by the Educational Affairs Division Poster Review Committee for their acceptability for presentation. Submissions will be reviewed for their originality and applicability to health-system pharmacy and scored on relevance/originality, objectives, methods, results and conclusions/implications. The abstract scoring sheet is available here
. Clinical case reports are encouraged. However, literature reviews are not acceptable.
In order for an original or encore submission to be accepted for poster presentation, a minimum score of 5 on the abstract scoring sheet is required. Original research submitted as research in progress requires a minimum score of only 3, as results and conclusions/implications will not be scored. Two blinded reviewers must score the abstracts at the minimum required score in order for it to be accepted for poster presentation at the Spring Meeting. In the case of a split decision between the 2 blinded reviewers, a 3rd impartial judge (blinded to the initial 2 scores and that there was a split decision on the review) will review and score the abstract and the abstract will be accepted if the minimum required score is given.
Although all posters received by the deadline will be reviewed on their merits, in some instances, due to space limitations, only a limited number of posters will be accepted for presentation at the meeting. For this reason, authors of poster submissions are encouraged to submit their entries early since, under these circumstances, posters will be accepted for presentation on a “first come, first served” basis.
All submitting authors will be notified of the acceptance of their poster via e-mail. All abstract submissions that are accepted for poster presentation will be entered into the poster competition. Authors whose posters are rejected will be provided with a detailed explanation of the committee’s reason(s) for their decision.AWARDS

The student poster winner’s college's ICHP student chapter will receive a free meeting registration for one student to attend either the next Annual Meeting or next Spring Meeting and a plaque. Posters will be judged at the Spring Meeting on April 15-16, 2011, during which time the winners will be announced.DEADLINES
