Outstanding Abstract Achievement Award

New in 2019, the Foundation has adopted the Poster Session at the NHIA Annual Conference as part of its efforts to advance NHIF’s mission of promoting investigator-initiated research related to home and specialty infusion. NHIF will award a $1000 scholarship to the individual practitioner author who submits an abstract that best meets the following criteria:

  • Selects a topic that examines an innovative approach to clinical practice, identifies a best practice, or improves quality.
  • Is relevant to a current challenge, issue, or question facing the home infusion industry.
  • Employs an effective study design/methodology to achieve results.
  • Has the ability for expansion into a larger study.

In addition to the cash award, the winning author will receive support for developing a manuscript for publication of their research in INFUSION magazine, as well as complimentary registration to the 2020 NHIA Annual Conference.

Finalists for the NHIF Outstanding Abstract Achievement Award will be invited to give a short (10-15 minute) podium presentation providing an overview of the research project and summarizing their findings during a special clinical track session on March 11, 3:15 PM – 4:45 PM. Finalists must be available to participate in the podium abstract presentation session to be eligible for the award. Industry abstract submissions are not eligible for the NHIF award program.
