Abstract Submission

LPA Call for Posters —Now Accepting Abstracts


(Download Flyer or continue below)


The Louisiana Pharmacists Association is continuing to offer our new educational offering to this year’s virtual meeting in July—a one hour poster session for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.  We are now soliciting poster abstracts for the session to be held Saturday, July 25, 2020 at two different 30 minute intervals.  This opportunity is open to everyone, but we encourage our pharmacy students to submit an abstract and continue building your presentation skills and C.V.


Poster Topics

The topics of your poster should be relevant to current pharmacy subject matters, including specialty areas and all practice settings.  Topics must meet one of the ACPE approved Topic Designators:

1.Disease State Management / Drug Therapy (drugs, drug therapy, and/or disease states)

2.AIDS Therapy (therapeutic, legal, social, ethical, or psychological issues related to understanding and treatment)

3.Law Related Pharmacy Practice (federal, state, or local laws and/or regulations affecting the practice of pharmacy)

4.General Pharmacy (topics relevant to the practice of pharmacy other than those included in the above three designators)

5.Patient Safety (topics relevant to the prevention of healthcare errors and the elimination or mitigation of patient injury caused by healthcare errors)

6.Immunizations (recommended immunization schedules, administration procedures, proper storage and disposal, record keeping, adverse drug events, first aid, general updates)

7.Compounding (sterile, non-sterile, hazardous drug compounding for humans and animals, best practices, USP quality assurance standards)

8.Pain Management (treatment and management of pain, prescribing and distribution and use of opioid medications, opioid addiction and misuse)

Abstract Considerations

Key Factors for your abstract to be a strong candidate:

  • Clarity of Subject Matter
  • Significance and Relevance
  • Methods of Research
  • Presentation Style

Abstracts will be rejected if the abstract is not relevant to pharmacy, pharmacists, or pharmacy technicians; or is promotional in nature.




In accordance with the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, the Louisiana Pharmacists Association maintains a policy of non-commercialism, assuring that all CPE activities “provide an in-depth presentation with fair, full disclosure as well as objectivity and balanced. Appropriate topics and learning activities shall be distinguished from those topics and learning activities that are promotional or appear to be intended for the purpose of endorsing either a specific commercial drug or other commercial product or a specific commercial service.” All faculty and personnel involved in the planning of these activities must complete this.

As a provider of continuing education, as faculty or planning personnel, I will:

  1. “Meaningfully disclose” any relevant interests that may affect the content of the educational activity being offered.
  2. Identify and resolve all conflicts of interest prior to the education activity being delivered to learners.
  3. Ensure the content of the educational activity will give a balanced view of appropriate topics to promote improvements or quality in healthcare and not specific proprietary business interests of a commercial interest. (Balanced view means that the recommendations or emphasis must fairly represent, and be based on, a reasonable view and valid interpretation of the information available in the subject and that no single product or service is over represented in the educational activity when other equal but competing products or services are available for inclusion.)
