Once again it is time to start thinking about the Poster Presentations for the LSHP Annual Meeting.  The meeting will be held May 25-27 at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans, 601 Loyola Ave, New Orleans, LA.  We would like to challenge each of you to participate in the Poster Session being held in conjunction with the exhibits at the Annual Meeting on Friday, May 26, 2017.  Poster presentations are a means of communicating new ideas and services with your colleagues.  Subject matter may consist of administrative projects, clinical projects, case studies, and new procedure outlines.  

An Interactive Poster Session (ACPE Approved) will be featured.  Six (6) or more posters will be selected for presenter-participant interaction.  "Focus on Patient Safety, Drug Product Preparation, Quality Improvement, Medication Safety, Education of Practitioners and Patients" will be the theme.  The goal is to encourage networking and enhance member involvement in our educational program.  All posters are peer reviewed and approved by the Annual Meeting Committee.

All topics and abstracts should be submitted on or before Friday, May 5, 2017, via email to office@lshp.org.  (See attached guidelines for submitting abstracts.) If you submit an abstract, you will receive a confirmation from LSHP that your abstract has been received and you are assigned space.  Please make sure to include the address where you would like the confirmation to be emailed.  If you do not receive a confirmation from LSHP, you have until Friday, May 5, 2017 to contact Lauren Landry at the LSHP office by telephone. Absolutely no additional abstracts or requests to submit or resubmit them will be accepted after 5:00 p.m., May 5, 2017.

No more than two entries will be accepted from any person as either author or co-author of a presentation (exceptions must be approved by the Annual Meeting Committee).

Achievement awards as well as a cash award will be presented in the categories of clinical, research and administrative practice, in addition to awards for student, resident and technician posters.  Awards will be presented to the practitioner according to abstracts and the poster presentation at the meeting.  To encourage membership and member involvement, ONLY LSHP members are eligible to receive the cash awards (e.g. if the first author is not a member, the award goes the next author that qualifies in order listed on the poster).

Please encourage your staff to get involved!  I'm sure your institution has just the right program to be presented as a poster.
