There are several categories of abstracts eligible for presentation at ACCP national meetings or through virtual poster sessions. For those participating in the Research and Scholarship Academy, original research is required for certification. This webinar will review the criteria for original research abstracts and discuss common pitfalls to avoid when submitting your abstract. Examples of abstracts will be examined, scored using original research criteria and discussed. By the end of the session, the participant will have applied the review criteria for original research to sample abstracts and be prepared to apply these criteria to individual research projects for certification.


1. Review abstract criteria (Instructions, Structure) for Original Research, Systematic Review/Meta-Analysis, Case Reports, and Clinical Pharmacy Forum.
2. Describe the impact of abstract categories and review criteria on successful abstract submissions.
3. Identify common pitfalls in abstract submissions using sample abstracts and review criteria.
