Overview

AMGA is designing an education experience with plans for a variety of content delivery formats. In your application, you can select which format you’d prefer. Submit a proposal that showcases how you have taken your organization to the next level of innovation, efficiency, and effectiveness in healthcare leadership, management and care delivery. 

  • AMGA-Member-led Peer-to-Peer Breakout Sessions will provide participants interactive and engaging content with activities, discussions, or exercises to promote lively discourse and provide tangible takeaways. Each of the concurrent sessions will be 60-minutes in duration, inclusive of Q&A, and categorized content tracks most requested by AMGA Members. We encourage Members to submit proposals that highlight experiences, with topics that promote participation and emphasize new solutions to universal challenges. 
  • A Poster Presentation efficiently communicates concepts and data to an audience using a combination of visuals and text on a 2D surface. Learners will be given a chance to view all self-explanatory Posters at leisure during designated times on the agenda. During the Poster Session, all presenters are required to share their Posters with conference participants as they walk through the Poster area. Conference participants can use this one-on-one time to learn more, ask questions, and chat over implications for their own organizations.
Looking for guidance on topics for your proposal? Download the printable version of AMGA's AC25 Call for Presentations for a list of ideas to consider within the following topic areas:

   •    Transforming Healthcare with Artificial Intelligence
   •    Leadership, Governance, and Culture
   •    Technology and Innovation
   •    Patient-Centered Care
   •    Operations and Finance/Workforce Issues

Presentation Guidelines

To ensure that our accredited continuing education at AC25 serves the needs of patients and the public, is based on valid content, and is free from commercial influence:
 
  • You must utilize at least one element of engagement (group discussion, an instructor-posed question with time for participant reflection, or use of a case study with different engagement elements throughout the program) during your session.  
  • Any recommendations for patient care must be based on current science, evidence, and clinical reasoning, while giving a fair and balanced view of diagnostic and therapeutic options. In addition, all scientific research referred to, reported, or used in support or justification of a patient care recommendation must conform to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection, analysis, and interpretation.
  • Your presentation must not include any identified patient health information. 
  • Your presentation must be free of marketing (e.g., organization logo) or sales of products or services that serve your professional or financial interests. 
  • AMGA requires global disclosure of the existence of all financial relationships with commercial interest from any individual in a position to control the content of a CME activity sponsored by AMGA. All confirmed speakers for AC25 will be required to disclose their financial relationship(s) with any ineligible company in the past 24 months soon after proposal approval, in order for AMGA to mitigate any necessary relationships in a timely fashion and openly identify any potential conflicts. Additionally, all relationships with ineligible companies will be disclosed to participants prior to the educational activities (in conference promotional materials, your final PowerPoint slide deck, handouts, and post-meeting publications) so that the listeners may form their own judgments regarding possible bias. 

Review Process

Proposals will be reviewed by AMGA’s Annual Conference Planning Committee, which is comprised of your peers—physicians and administrative leaders from AMGA’s Medical Group Members. The strongest proposals will emphasize how attendees will use the learnings from your session upon return from the conference. Throughout the evaluation process, proposals will be assessed using the following criteria:

   1.   Timeliness and innovation of topic
   2.   Practical applications
   3.   Data and outcomes (as appropriate to topic)
   4.   Specificity, originality, current relevance, and quality of content
   5.   Interaction/audience participation opportunity
   6.   Level of commercial bias
