ISPOR 6th Latin America Conference Research Presentation Awards Winners

The ISPOR Research Presentation Podium and Poster Awards were established in 1998 to recognize the scientific merit of podium and poster presentations of the ISPOR Annual International Meetings, Annual European Congresses, Asia-Pacific and Latin America Conferences.

This year, the ISPOR judges evaluated podium presentations and nominated poster presentations. All podium presentations are considered for an award. Poster presentations in the top 10%, based on abstract review score, are considered and eligible for a poster presentation award. 
Evaluations of scientific merit were based upon the following criteria:

  • Background provides appropriate perspective / context for the subject
  • Objectives / research questions are clearly stated
  • Research design / methods / modeling is appropriate and transparent (scores on this will determine winners in case of ties)
  • Data sources and/or sampling procedures are clear and appropriate
  • Data analyses are appropriate
  • Research objectives are met/addressed
  • Implications of findings are discussed
  • Factual information is kept separate from interpretations or implications
  • Abstract is presented in an unbiased manner
  • Clarity of presentation
