2013 Honoree: Australian Hand Surgery Society
Deadline: March 25, 2013
Submit Your Abstract Here
As a part of our International Guest Hand Society program the ASSH will feature a special poster section within the exhibit hall, highlighting scientific contributions from Australian Hand Society attendees. Australian Hand Society members are encouraged to submit abstracts for consideration in all categories of presentation but a special abstract submission site has been developed specifically to highlight those under consideration as a Scientific Poster.

A Poster Presentation is the best format for presenting scientific material – either laboratory or clinical – where an active exchange between the author and the attendee is desired. Poster displays are the perfect medium for unusual or multiple clinical case presentations. The display should be prepared with photographs and laboratory information and encourage the exchange of findings and treatment results. Any aspect of hand care may be presented in a poster exhibit.
Abstracts should be 400 words or less and must briefly state the hypothesis of the study, describe the materials/methods used, report the results, as well as the statistical treatment accorded the data and summarize the research findings. The summary should not be a traditional ‘discussion’ but rather a prioritized, bulleted statement that indicate the study’s significance, value and clinical relevance in relation to the existing knowledge on the topic. Abstracts may include up to two graphic attachments (i.e. tables, illustrations and pictures). A total of six authors (including the primary/presenting author) can be listed on any abstract. Each abstract MUST include the following
section labels within the abstract text: Hypothesis, Methods, Results, and Summary Points. Level of Evidence is also collected at the time of abstract submission and will be reviewed by the Evidence Based Practice Committee. The committee reserves the right to change the level submitted based on their review.
