When submitting your proposal, you must select a topic that best describes your research. Topic subcategories are listed after each topic below to aid in your selection.
CRITERIA FOR EVALUATION OF WORKSHOPS:
Workshop acceptance is based on the quality of the proposal and the topic for discussion. Specific criteria for acceptance are:
- The workshop purpose(s) are clearly stated.
- The purpose(s) can be achieved in the 60 minutes allotted for this workshop.
- The information / issue(s) presented are novel or innovative.
- The workshop presentation should contain original scientific content and not just report on the routine use of a single instrument or tool.
- Examples should be drawn from a number of sources and not just the presenter(s)' own studies.
- The information / issue(s) presented are valuable to the pharmacoeconomic & outcomes researcher or the health care decision-maker.
- There is an audience interactive element in the workshop.
- The workshop does NOT appear to be advertising the presenter's company's services or products.
[Note: ISPOR recognizes that a primary purpose of workshops is to allow the presenter(s) to demonstrate their competence in a topic or subject area. However, attendees expect a scientific discourse, so it is important that these workshops are not used as a marketing platform for the presenter's company's products or services.]
