Poster Presentation Judging and Awards

 

Poster Judging

Posters will be judged in two rounds. The first round of judging will be based on the abstract submissions and an image of the poster submitted by September 15, 2017. The second round will occur on-site and will take into account the score given to the abstract and image review, as well as the on-site presentation and content of the poster.

Scoring Criteria

All criteria are intended to act as a guideline to facilitate the review process, and are applied at the discretion of the judges. The judges retain the ability to accept or reject any abstract based on their expert opinion on the quality and relevance of any submission.

For the review process, the following criteria will be used:

Scientific Category Criteria

  1. The abstract is well written, providing a clear, concise summary, with an appropriate amount of detail of the work described.
  2. The abstract demonstrates that relevant stakeholder groups (ie: clinician groups, patients, families, etc) were engaged at the appropriate level given the nature of the work described.
  3. The abstract describes an appropriately rigorous methodology given the research question being asked.
  4. The abstract describes relevant observations, valid results and/or outcomes. (For example, scientific work demonstrates valid results. Quality improvement initiatives have been rigorously evaluated).
  5. The conclusions drawn in this abstract are logical given the observations, results or evaluation described.
  6. The abstract describes work that would be considered unique, new, and/or innovative.

Demonstration Category Criteria

  1. The abstract is well written, providing a clear, concise summary, with an appropriate amount of detail of the work described.
  2. The abstract demonstrates that relevant stakeholder groups (ie: clinician groups, patients, families, etc) were engaged at the appropriate level given the nature of the work described.
  3. The abstract clearly identifies the problem being addressed.
  4. The abstract describes a logical approach to the problem identified.
  5. The outcomes of the work are clearly described.
  6. The conclusions drawn in this abstract are reasonable and appropriate.
  7. The abstract describes work that would be considered unique, new, and/or innovative?

For Poster Only:

  1. The poster is visually appealing, makes appropriate use of space and colour, and conveys the information well.
  2. The poster makes appropriate use of images, graphs, or diagrams.

The criteria for evaluation also include situations that would result in the dismissal of the abstract. An abstract could be eliminated if any one of the following criteria is met:

  • The content is inappropriate, or not relevant to the CAPHC community.
  • The abstract/poster submission too closely resembles a submission from the same author or group from a previous CAPHC Annual Meeting.

Awards

Awards of Recognition will be issued to the top abstract in each of the four categories for a total of four winners based on overall content, creativity, and innovation. The prizes will be awarded Monday, October 22, 2018.
