General sessions focus on development of the vascular access specialty, clinical research, professional development, technological advances, and evidence-based practice. Breakout sessions will offer small group presentations emphasizing subjects of interest for the vascular access specialist and related disciplines; abstract and poster presentations allow participants to share original research, education projects and clinical innovations. Platinum Showcases and exhibits afford participants, corporate members, and exhibitors the opportunity to learn from each other, design and apply new technologies, science, and techniques in the most effective ways. With separate registration fees, an additional day of pre- meeting workshops (October 3, 2019) offers in-depth exploration of topics of critical importance to the vascular access community. • Proposals for Breakout Sessions, General Sessions, and/or Hands-On Workshops may be submitted through this form. • Participation and submission of topic suggestions is NOT limited to AVA members. • Topics should address the general or specific interests of AVA members and meeting participants keeping in mind that AVA is an organization of clinicians, healthcare specialties, and industry/corporate professionals involved in vascular access and related fields. • Presentations must avoid any semblance of commercialism. • Topics constituting promotional activities and/or advertising are prohibited. • If a presentation or its content is underwritten in any way by an individual or organization other than the presenter, acknowledgement of the source and scope of support is required. • No materials that promote the self-interest of the presenter or commercial interest of a company, or organization may be distributed/displayed. • Sessions may be scheduled from 30 to 60 minutes in length at the discretion of the selection committee. • Submissions are selected through a blinded peer review process unless prior authorization from AVA is received. • AVA values diversity, inclusion, and professional mentoring among its membership and promotes these values in its topic and speaker selection processes. • AVA reserves the right to solicit additional and or new speakers for any proposed topic.
