A The call for abstracts will go out in May. Normally, NPSA accepts about 32 abstracts. Moderators will be chosen for each session and they will lead the discussion sections, questions will be sent in via text in real time. We are also accepting case studies and videos for a session on Saturday. A limited number of E-posters may also be accepted.
That disparities in access, representation and outcomes in healthcare and surgery exist has been documented for many years. However, this past year of COVID and social justice issues in our nation is a clear call for action. The North Pacific Surgical Association is committed to addressing diversity and inclusion in surgery and as well as eliminating disparities in health/ surgical outcomes for our patients. As such we are encouraging our members, residents and fellows to consider presenting work on these issues in the surgical realm or to consider clinical research projects with an eye towards addressing these issues in surgery in substantive ways that maybe shared at future meetings to encourage all to be involved to change our systems in positive ways.
