Deadline: Submission deadline has passed

Don’t miss your chance to be a part of ARHP’s annual clinical conference, Reproductive Health 2014. Secure your spot on the agenda by submitting a compelling, high-quality abstract that is relevant to ARHP’s continuing professional development mission and meeting objectives.

The selection committee will choose abstracts to be included in the program that are designed to improve participants’ competence and performance in practice. All accepted abstracts will be published in the August 2014 issue of Contraception, An International Reproductive Health Journal.

Oral presentations: Abstract submissions proposing non-traditional presentation formats that facilitate dialogue between presenters and attendees will be given preference in selection. Abstract submissions must clearly define the expected results of the presentation in terms of changes in participants’ competence or performance (not only knowledge). All oral presentations will be accredited for continuing education credit and submissions from commercial interests will not be considered.

Poster presentations: ARHP encourages a broad range of submissions, including original clinical, behavioral, or social science research results; research-in-progress; career development, management, or administrative innovations; quality improvements; or novel educational or curricular projects pertinent to reproductive health. Awards are given annually for outstanding posters.
