PCPI Call for Abstracts
Share |

PCPI invites members of the healthcare community to submit abstracts for presentation for our ongoing webinar series or for breakout sessions at our November 2019 annual conference in Chicago IL.  This year’s conference theme is “The Quality Landscape: Charting the Course for Success.” The meeting will feature a range of talks, discussions, and networking opportunities on furthering the reaches of quality with experts and thought leaders in measurement, registries, and quality improvement.

Let your research make its mark - this is an opportunity to share your work in health and healthcare quality with a diverse group of stakeholders.


Authors are encouraged to submit proposals for conference breakout sessions in one or more of the following categories:

  • Population Health
  • Patient-Centered Care
  • Utilizing Registry Data for Quality Improvement
  • Utilizing Registry Data for Research

Abstracts for our webinar series may have a wider range of topics as related to measurement, registries and data, and quality improvement.  Participants at all career stages are encouraged to submit one or more abstracts for consideration.

Abstract Requirements

Abstracts are limited to approximately 500 words.  The submission form includes:

  • Authors/presenters and professional affiliation/organization of each
  • Title of project
  • Background:  Objective and problem that is addressed by the project or study. It should include what is known and what is not known. 
  • Methods: Design and Analysis
  • Results: Key findings
  • Conclusions: Main, generalizable message

  • In addition, all submitters, presenters, authors and co-authors are required to submit a disclosure form if the abstract is accepted.
  • Presenters may not use their conference presentation to market products or services and should use product-based or generic names wherever possible.
  • All abstracts accepted for presentation will be posted in the conference app, in conference communications, and on our website.
