Scientific Session Chair, Joseph V. Pergolizzi, MD, and Co-chair, Srinivas Nalamachu, MD, invite you to submit abstracts for posters to be presented at the 2017 PAINWeek National Conference. Plan now to have your poster included! More than 2300 practitioners from across the country are gathering to foster solutions to the problem of inadequate pain control. To enrich the attendee experience, we offer poster sessions to share the latest information from current research and clinical findings with our attendees, who are practitioners on the front lines of pain management. Abstracts may be research oriented or evidence-based practice that are relevant to frontline practitioners who treat patients in pain.
The deadline for electronic submission is 5:00p EST, Friday, July 28, 2017. All authors will be notified via email on or by August 18.
PAINWeek requires faculty and poster authors/presenters who have an interest in selling a technology, program, product, and/or service to healthcare professionals to disclose this information in order to be considered for and/or present at any PAINWeek educational session.
If your abstract is accepted, you will be notified on or by August 18, and the abstract will be posted online by August 28. Only accepted abstracts will be posted online. Posters will not be published online.
Poster and Presentation Guidelines
Authors should arrive on site to have their posters up by 3:00p on Wednesday, September 6 (Day 2 of the conference). PAINWeek will provide a poster board, pushpins, and poster number. If you would like to provide reprints of your posters (ie, handouts) you may leave them under your assigned poster board. Posters will be available for public viewing after 12:30p. Poster session room will be closed at 5:30p for the keynote and welcome reception, and will reopen on Thursday.
Scientific Session and Reception
Due to the enormity of requests for posters to have longer onsite accessibility, we ask that all posters be set-up by 3:00p on Wednesday, September 6. All authors and/or presenters should be available at their posters for the Scientific Session reception, which will be held on Thursday, September 7, 6:30p-8:30p. Refreshments will be served.
The review committee will choose 6 abstracts (posters) for oral presentations at the PAINWeek national conference. Presenters will be notified by August 25. Date, time, and location of oral presentations will be announced. While first authors typically present in person, PAINWeek allows other listed authors to present in his/her place.
The PAINWeek late-breaking abstracts policy allows for the submission of late-breaking abstracts only for randomized phase III trials for which no preliminary data are available at the time of the abstract submission deadline (July 28), but for which a preplanned analysis of the primary endpoint is scheduled after that date but before August 18 (deadline for the final, updated late-breaking abstract). During abstract submission, you will be required to provide the date of planned analysis. The policy is not a mechanism to allow for updated data to be submitted later when preliminary data are available by the abstract submission deadline.
The submission system will open in spring 2017.
