The Ohio Research and Innovative Practice Forums and Poster Session provide an opportunity for those performing research AND those transforming pharmacy practice through novel services and interventions to share their findings and experiences with pharmacists throughout Ohio during the 146th OPA Annual Conference, April 5-7, 2024, at Hilton Columbus at Easton.

We invite pharmacists, residents, fellows, and students to submit their research and/or practice innovations. Effort will be made to honor preferences for research and innovative practice submissions. However, the selection committee reserves the right to make the final determination of category for presentation. All presenters must be registered for the Annual Conference.

Research Submissions
Investigators working on research projects pertaining to pharmacy practice, pharmacy-focused scientific research, economic/social/administrative sciences, and pharmacy education will be showcased during the Ohio Research Forum and Poster session. Submissions for completed research or research in progress (if results are anticipated to be ready for presentation at the time of the meeting) will be considered. There will be up to five research projects chosen for the CPE podium presentation.  Remaining abstracts accepted will be presented as part of the Poster Session.

Innovative Practice Submissions
Innovative pharmacy practice models and services in Ohio will be showcased in the Innovative Practice Forum and Poster Session.  Practitioners from a variety of practice sites are encouraged to apply to present how they have successfully adjusted workflow, tried something new, and/or implemented services as they overcame barriers to offer patient-centered care and services. This year’s session at the Annual Conference will be run differently than in the past. Instead of 15-17 minute comprehensive presentations, we invite pharmacists to present 8-10 minute micro-presentations focused on strategies for success in patient care service development, implementation, or sustainability. Audience participants will gain ideas to enhance their own practices. There will be up to eight innovative practices chosen for the CPE podium micro-presentations.  Remaining abstracts accepted will be presented as part of the Poster Session.
