. Furthermore, the Academy's annual meeting itself has been rebranded to Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry 2018
, abbreviated as "CLP 2018". You'll see references throughout our documents and website to both terms when referring to the meeting.
A Message from the Annual Meeting Program Chair
Academy President James Rundell, MD, FAPM, has chosen the meeting theme as Branding C-L Psychiatry: Defining the Breadth and Depth of Our Subspecialty
. While submissions that span the breadth of consultation-liaison psychiatry are welcome, submissions that align with the meeting theme will be preferred over general subjects.
Clinicians in consultation-liaison psychiatry face a wide breadth of conundrums and controversies in all areas of practice. Our hope is that this meeting highlights the subspecialties within our subspecialty! We welcome proposals that not only focus on the nuances of the multiple subspecialties within C-L psychiatry, but also review information is imperative for any practicing C-L psychiatrist.
During our last annual meeting, an attendee commented his surprise at my attendance at a session highlighting updates in psycho-oncology. As a perinatal psychiatrist, I see very few patients with primary oncologic diagnoses, however, I view the annual meeting as a forum to update my knowledge base about other subspecialties and hope that other attendees are able to do this as well.
I look forward to reviewing your abstracts! Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you!

Review of Submission Process
The Annual Meeting Program Committee is dedicated to assembling the highest-quality educational program for our attendees. Each year, the best-received sessions are those in which attendees learn information relevant to their work in a lively, engaging environment. In the spirit of continuous improvement we encourage all potential presenters to incorporate emerging knowledge about how adults learn in order to better engage their audience. This includes considering Socratic teaching methods and other forms of audience participation, flipped classrooms, and case-based instruction.
The abstract submission should be structured in such a way that it will be clear to potential participants how your session will enhance their knowledge incorporating the tenets of adult learning theory. It may also be helpful to utilize part of your abstract submission to breakdown timing of your presentation. For example, 5 minutes introduction; 20 minutes didactic presentation on topic; 15 minutes case-based discussion with utilization of audience response system, etc.
Keep in mind that the academic quality of the meeting continues to rise, making the competition for speaking slots rather high. Less than half of oral paper and session submissions will be accepted, and many good submissions must be declined. Please take extra care to make your abstract clear, rigorous, and engaging—it is the only information on which the Program Committee can judge your work.
IMPORTANT NOTE; PLEASE READ THIS
