Call for Oral Abstracts

We heard you! We are extending the Oral Abstract Submission Deadline to September 8.

ASPHP invites those interested in presenting at the 2022 ASPHP National SPHM Education Event to submit a proposal for an oral presentation. We are seeking dynamic presenters who can share all-new ideas and practices that strengthen new and/or existing SPHM programs.

Speaker proposals will be evaluated objectively by our Oral Abstract Committee.

Proposals must contain and convey sufficient detail to allow the committee to understand how the proposed session will contribute to universal SPHM. Selection will be competitive; please submit a compelling and complete proposal.

Oral presentations will be 45-minutes in length with several running concurrently and may repeat at another time period on the same day. We encourage sessions that involve participants and create an engaging educational experience.

We welcome you to submit an oral abstract on the following topics:

  • Innovative handling activities using SPHM equipment
  • Clinical/patient scenarios
  • Bariatrics
  • Pediatrics
  • Critical care
  • Long-term care
  • Home care
  • Creative SPHM models
  • Tele-SPHM
  • Mobility in every setting
  • Cost analysis
  • Training tools
  • Research

We are specifically interested in the following topics:

  • Design, structural or architectural innovations, such as ceiling tracks in radiology or OR
  • Creative ways to implement and sustain a SPHM program, such as innovative models that have been successful over time, or complex collaborative relationships
  • “How to” presentation for our “How to” Track. This may include videos, discussions or a specific hands-on demonstration to explain a specific way to perform a challenging task
  • Pediatric challenges, such as ways to provide mobility among the patient whose weigh cannot be accommodated with standard or even XS equipment
  • Bariatric care, such as ways to enhance the patient experience through safe, early, respectful mobility, or ways to provide safe, dignified, routine patient care using SPHM technology

Speakers’ Consideration: Speakers may receive a $200 discount on the main event registration and one-night hotel stay on the day of their presentation. Travel and meal expenses are the responsibility of the speakers. There is a maximum of 3 presenters per presentation permitted.
