Submit Abstracts by April 30

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has issued a call for abstracts to be presented at the 2021 ACS Quality and Safety Conference, July 12–16. The submission deadline is April 30.

Individuals at participating sites are encouraged to submit a 250-word abstract for poster presentation. The abstract should relate to surgical quality improvement initiatives including the development, implementation, or validation of best practices. We are also interested in operational best practices relating to workflows around collecting data and reporting. Abstracts should utilize data from one or more of the following ACS Quality Programs.

Please note: Abstracts that have been submitted or recently presented at other meetings are eligible for presentation at the ACS Quality and Safety Conference. In the view of the ACS, previous presentation of a paper does not prohibit the presentation or publication of the material at the Quality and Safety Conference.

We welcome submissions from the following categories:
