2018 Section on Critical Care (SOCC) Abstracts Program
QUALITY IMPROVEMENT PROJECT ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS AND MOC PART 4 ELIGIBILITY
- The AAP Section on Critical Care will accept abstracts this year that focus on topics impacting the clinical care of critically ill and injured infants, children and adolescents, as well as other clinical and laboratory research of interest to the pediatric intensivist. Abstract submissions focusing on patient safety, education, health policy, and quality outcomes are highly encouraged.
- Programming will focus on the successful training of our pediatric critical care trainees, including trainee-specific programming, to enable them to develop and sustain careers in research, leadership, and advocacy.
- Two abstract awards (Best Abstract and Best Physician-in-Training Abstract) will be awarded as well as three Physician-in-Training Travel Grants.
- The annual Distinguished Career Award will also be awarded to recognize an SOCC member and senior leader in the field of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine who has contributed to the subspecialty for 25 years or longer post fellowship completion and has made significant career accomplishments.
- Abstracts will be accepted for podium (oral) presentations as well as poster presentation. Abstracts submitted will be considered for either format at the discretion of the Abstract Review Committee. Case reports will also be accepted.
- Poster presentations should remain up for the entire SOCC scientific abstract program.
- Abstracts may be submitted to another scientific society for presentation, but should not have been published prior to presentation. Papers presented at previous AAP meetings should not be re-submitted.
- Presenters of accepted abstracts should notify the SOCC Program Chair, Dr. Laura Ibsen as soon as possible if they must cancel their presentation.
- This year, we will be accepting abstracts describing quality improvement projects. These abstracts may be eligible
for free MOC Part 4 credit through the AAP’s Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Portfolio.
- Please describe the following in your abstract submission. These items MUST be included on the poster or slide presentation in order to be eligible for MOC credit:
- The specific aim of the quality improvement project that describes the target population, desired numerical improvement, and timeframe for achieving the improvement
- The process for improvement (eg, QI methodology utilized, how the intervention was implemented, how tests of change were used to modify interventions, who was involved, etc)
- Graphical display of data: a minimum of baseline and 2 follow-up measurements
- A discussion of the degree to which the aim was achieved
- Factors that affected success
- Next steps for the QI project
If you created an account in a different program, you may use the same username and access key. If this is your first time submitting, please create a new account.
- To submit an abstract describing a QI project, select the “QI Project” radio button as part of your abstract submission.
- If accepted into the H program, you will be contacted by AAP Division of Quality/MOC Portfolio staff with further information about MOC eligibility.
- Note: authors can still submit a QI project abstract even if not interested in MOC credit. Abstracts may still be accepted into the program even if they do not follow the MOC guidelines. These, however, will not be eligible for MOC credit.
- Poster/oral presentations describing projects already approved for MOC Part 4 credit are not eligible for additional credit.
