Competition in the 2022 ACCP Clinical Research Challenge (CRC) began February 14 with eighty-two teams vying for a spot in round 2: Letter of Intent (LOI) Submission. Teams achieving the top 40 scores after the initial online Journal Club Round submitted an LOI. Teams achieving the top 20 scores after round 2 were invited to compete in round 3: Research Protocol Development. Teams were tasked with developing a research proposal designed to demonstrate the value of clinical pharmacy–led services and/or initiatives to improve health outcomes among underserved or under-resourced populations. Teams were provided a specific research environment in which to formulate their proposals.
The proposals were reviewed by the CRC Review Panel, and the submissions ranking in the top one-third were referred to the CRC Oversight Panel for evaluation and selection of awards. Please join ACCP in congratulating the finalist teams and the award winners.
