Call for 2019 AVAHO Abstracts

The Association of VA Hematology/Oncology is accepting abstracts for its 2019 meeting in September.


The AVAHO Program Planning Committee is pleased to announce the call for abstracts for our meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota, September 20-22, 2019. Abstracts should be submitted online here:

Abstracts should not exceed 350 words, excluding title and titles should not exceed 300 characters. Illustrations, tables or bullet points are not permitted.

The following categories of abstracts are suitable for submission:

  • Research (eg, clinical trials, laboratory studies, translational studies, descriptive studies, qualitative studies)
  • Evidence-Based Projects
  • Quality Improvement Projects and initiatives
  • Clinical Practice (eg, best clinical practice exemplar, case study, disease management, palliative care (non-research), survivorship (nonresearch), symptom management (non-research)
  • Program Initiatives (eg, workforce, infrastructure, workflow)
  • Projects in Progress

The first author is considered the primary author, is responsible for the content and integrity of the project, and will serve as the contact person by the AVAHO administrator and Planning Committee. Authors may submit more than one abstract; however, they may be first author on only one abstract. At least one author must be a member of AVAHO. One author must present the abstract at the meeting. Accepted abstracts will be published in a special edition of Federal Practitioner .

The electronic poster session was viewed very favorably by attendees last year and will be used again this year. This requires more logistic hurdles and thus, the June 1 submission deadline is firm.

Each poster will be assigned to one of two time slots for presentation. One author must be present to give a brief presentation of the poster. Authors are encouraged to record their poster presentation to provide attendees another option for viewing your poster. This recording does NOT replace the obligation to be present IN PERSON during the assigned poster session. Details regarding this recording will be forthcoming.

All abstracts must be submitted by June 1, 2019. This is a firm deadline. No extensions.
