Call for Abstracts Now Open
The deadline for the 8th Annual Call for Abstracts has been extended until Sunday, February 1, 2015 at Midnight CST.
Individuals at fully participating sites are encouraged to submit an abstract for podium and poster presentation at the 2015 ACS NSQIP National Conference held July 25-28 at the Chicago Hilton.
Abstracts should focus on research surrounding quality improvement initiatives and the development, implementation, or validation of best practices. Clinical Research should utilize ACS NSQIP data; however, we are also interested in operational best practices relating to utilization of the program, workflows, data and reporting, etc.
We will hold several abstract competitions and awards will be presented for the following categories:

The ACS NSQIP Pediatric (ACS NSQIP Peds) is the first multispecialty outcomes-based program to measure the quality of children's
surgical care. Similar to the Adult ACS NSQIP, ACS NSQIP Peds will enable participating hospitals to collect highly reliable
clinical data including 30 day outcomes.
The ACS NSQIP Peds has been designed to collect approximately 94 data points that are relevant to measuring surgical outcomes in children under
18 years of age. Preoperative, intraoperatve, and postoperative data will be collected on patients undergoing major surgical
procedures. Additional data points have been included for neonates up to 30 days old.
The ACS NSQIP is now accepting applications for ACS NSQIP Peds.
The ACS NSQIP Peds is available to freestanding general acute care children's hospitals,
children's hospitals within a larger hospital, specialty children's hospitals, and general acute care hospitals with a pediatric wing. Hospitals interested
in participating will be required to hire a full-time Surgical Clinical Reviewer (SCR), complete a participation agreement, and pay an annual participation fee.
