Call for Abstract for Posters
Abstract Poster Submission Form deadline: Friday, April 3, 2015 @ 5:00 pm
Extended to Friday, April 10 @ 4:00pm CST
The Organizing Committee of the ICARE Conference invites submissions for the Poster Session. We
welcome submissions from students, faculty, and public health professionals. The conference focuses on
the spectrum of acute care concerns ranging from pre-hospital to critical care units.
The conference will feature a 45-minute dedicated poster session on Saturday, July 11. Poster viewing
sessions will allow presenters the opportunity to discuss their posters with conference attendees and to
answer questions about their work. Abstracts and titles for posters will be disseminated to attendees prior
to the conference. Additionally, three posters will be selected to be highlighted in a “Symposium of
Excellence” live presentation before the entire audience.
Individuals submitting abstracts for poster sessions should consider the target audience and overall focus
for the ICARE Conference. The target audience includes an interprofessional audience of healthcare and
public health professionals, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, EMS, health/medical educators, and
other allied health care professionals. The focus is on acute and critical care research in a variety of
settings, ranging from pre-hospital to emergency department to critical care units.
The committee particularly encourages the active involvement of graduate and medical students,
residents, fellows, and allied professionals in providing information on clinical practice, small studies, case
reports, and research related to treatment of patients in any facility type or population sample.

In order to ensure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor at all programs, the planners, faculty,
moderators, and panelists must make full disclosure indicating whether they, and/or a spouse or domestic partner, have
had any relevant financial relationships with commercial interests within the last 12 months. A relevant financial
relationship is one in any amount with a commercial interest excluding the holding of mutual funds. A commercial
interest is defined as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services
consumed by, or used on patients (excepting non-profits, government organizations or providers of clinical
service directly to patients). Disclosing a relevant financial relationship with an organization does not preclude
involvement in the development, management, presentation, or evaluation of a CME activity. However, the Course
Director must have resolved any conflict(s) of interest and the audience must be informed of all such relationships prior to
the start of the activity. Individuals who refuse to disclose will be disqualified from participation in the CME activity. Failure
to complete and return the form is the same as refusing to disclose.
Mark the applicable statement:
Neither I, nor my spouse or domestic partner, have at present and/or have had within the past 12 months a relevant
financial relationship with a commercial interest.
Name of Commercial interest/
I, or
my spouse or domestic partner, have at present and/or have had within the past 12 months a relevant financial
