Do you have an idea for a Workshop or Problem-Based Learning Discussion (PBLD) that would benefit the Society for Pediatric Pain Medicine membership? If so, please see the requirements and submission information below for the SPPM 9th Annual Meeting, March 30-31, 2022 in Tampa, FL
WORKSHOPS – Submission deadline is extended to August 6, 2021
The planning team for the 2022 meeting is still working out the format for the program. SPPM may offer fewer workshops, workshops with less equipment, or some workshops in a virtual format.
We are looking for workshops topics that will be of interest to those involved in the prevention, assessment, and management of pain in infants, children, and adolescents.
- If your workshop will require equipment provided in-kind by vendors/commercial supporters – please confirm with vendors that they are willing to provide/ship the equipment prior to submitting your proposal.
- Include a plan for your workshop if it can be held in a virtual/online format.
- Please list all proposed faculty on your submission; confirm that they are willing to participate prior to submitting your proposal.
- SPPM will not provide any compensation or reimbursement to non-member faculty for workshops.
Please complete the workshop form if you would like to coordinate a workshop in 2022. If there are any specific barriers to address or resources we can help with, please include those in your application. Submissions will be closely reviewed by the meeting planning committee.Please complete and submit the form to [email protected] no later than August 6, 2021.
PBLD SUBMISSIONS – Submission deadline is extended to August 6, 2021
NOTE: All or some of the PBLDs may be presented in a virtual format. The final decision will be made prior to opening registration this fall.
Submissions may be a case or problem that is real or fictitious, and could describe issues related to pediatric pain medicine, regional anesthesia, resident education, medical ethics, or professionalism. The ‘Guidelines for PBLD Submission’ document describes the format for submission in more detail. Reviewers will score submissions for interest, scientific accuracy, and clarity of thought and expression.
Two moderators must be named for each submission, and if accepted, both must agree to participate as moderators for the group discussion at the meeting. Ideally, though not necessarily, one moderator will be an experienced educator, and the other a junior faculty member or a fellow in-training.
The final deadline for receipt of submissions will be midnight on Friday, August 6, 2021. No late submissions will be entertained.
Submissions should be sent as a Word document to Jenny Patterson at the Society for Pediatric Pain Medicine via e-mail at [email protected]. If accepted, you will be notified by email by September 15, 2021.
NOTE: If you have a topic idea for an Expert Round Table Discussion, please send the topic information, as well as suggested moderators/presenters to [email protected] by August 6, 2021.
We look forward to receiving your submissions! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions by emailing Jenny Patterson at the above email address.
