PROPOSAL INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS


This call for proposals is for the Teaching DBP Interactive Workshops and Half Day Workshops only. A call for Concurrents, Papers and Posters will go out under a separate notice in March.


Please note: Limited funds are available to support invited speakers (topic experts) who are not members of SDBP and would therefore be unlikely/unable to present at the meeting without the availability of supplemental funding. Please contact program co-chairs for additional instructions on the required Letter of Intent for invited speakers, due March 1, 2020.


Online Submissions:

Proposals must be completed and submitted through the SDBP online portal. You will be asked to provide a password and you can work on the abstract over several days. When you decide you have completed your proposal, click "submit". Once you submit, you will receive an e-mail message confirming successful receipt of the abstract; this e-mail message will also contain a copy of the proposal received.

The web site is available for workshop submission 24 hours a day until 5:00pm EST on March 24, 2020 from any location that has access to the Internet.

The meeting will be CME/CE accredited and therefore ACCME essentials for planning the meeting must be followed.

Meeting Registration for Selected Submissions: Workshop authors/presenters who are only attending their Teaching/Half-Day Workshop will not be required to register for the Annual Meeting. Authors/presenters in either the Teaching DBP or Half-Day Workshops will be responsible for all of their own travel expenses.

NOTE: Faculty for a program may not independently solicit funding for the program from industry, the government or agencies without prior approval from the Program Committee and the SDBP Executive Officers.


Teaching DBP: An Interactive Workshop

The focus of this interprofessional workshop is the enhancement of faculty teaching and evaluation skills who participate in the developmental-behavioral training of learners from a variety of professional fields and educational levels (i.e., graduate-level, medical school, residency, fellowship). Workshop sessions should fill a 60-90 minute time slot and designed to equip participants with the necessary knowledge and tools to implement similar teaching and evaluation methods in their local programs. Proposals that are not focused on training the trainer in DBP education will not be considered.

Priorities for sessions for this year's workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Training modalities and other strategies that stimulate medical students and other junior-level trainees to further explore training in developmental-behavioral and other mental health fields
  • Billing for clinical encounters while providing supervision of trainees
  • Teaching, evaluating, and documenting professionalism competencies
  • Developing and initiating performance improvement plans and remediation programs for learners

Proposals for Teaching DBP: An Interactive Workshop must contain the following components:

  1. The author's name, address, telephone number, and email.
  2. The title of the workshop.
  3. A two-sentence description of the workshop. If the workshop is accepted, this description will be utilized in registration materials for review by potential participants.
  4. State specific goals and objectives for your workshop.
  5. Identify target learner group of your educational innovation. Please specify the trainee type (i.e. medical, psychology, nursing) and trainee level (i.e. student, resident, fellow).
  6. Describe teaching methods and format of workshop.
  7. Describe how interactive and learner-centered techniques will be used in facilitating the workshop.
  8. A complete workshop proposal including all proposed speakers and the content of their presentation, in order of presentation. This is critical to include - specifically noting the time that will be devoted to each portion of the presentation and the interactive methods and learning that will occur under each co-presenter/leader.
  9. Audio-Visual Requests: SDBP will try to meet all AV needs within budgetary limits. Requests for additional A-V equipment after the workshop is accepted will not be approved. Presenters must bring laptops for presentations.

Half-Day Workshops

Half-Day Workshops focus on developing skills related to developmental and behavioral pediatrics. These can include ethics, advocacy, research or clinical skills submissions. All submissions must be interactive and conducive to adult learning. Attending professionals should be able to take practical skills back to their respective practices or professional lives. Half-Day Workshops are 3 hours in length, with a 15-minute break included. Session proposals typically involve multiple co-leaders, and it is highly recommended that co-leaders come from multiple disciplines.

The Program Committee has carefully reviewed past meeting evaluations and curated a list of topics that are of particular interest to our membership. Priorities for this year's workshops include the following (but are not limited to):

  • Evidence-based implementation of the SDBP Complex ADHD Guidelines, particularly in the areas of parent-training and behavioral intervention
  • Advanced psychopharmacology for DBP practitioners
  • The Business of DBP: Billing/coding and/or advocating for our field
  • Discussing Puberty/Sexuality with youth and families
  • Alternative Medicine: state of the science, how to talk to families
  • Pediatric Health Promotion: Digital media
  • Assessing and managing suicidal ideation/behavior

Proposals for Workshops must contain the following components:

  1. The author's name, address, telephone number, and email.
  2. The title of the workshop.

  5. State specific goals and learning objectives of the workshop.
  6. State your availability for presenting workshop on Friday or Saturday or either.
  7. A complete workshop agenda including all proposed speakers and what they will be presenting, in order of presentation. This is critical to include - specifically noting the interactive methods and learning that will occur under each co-presenter/leader.
  8. Specific listing of interactive presentation activities or how attendees will gain practical skills for practice, research, administration, or advocacy.
  9. Audio-Visual Requests: SDBP will try to meet all AV needs within budgetary limits. Requests for additional A-V equipment after the workshop is accepted will not be approved. Presenters must bring laptops for presentations.

Each program proposal must include a lead faculty member and a list of the faculty for the program. It is strongly recommended, but not required, that faculty from multiple disciplines are included. The SDBP Program Committee requests that every effort be made to include individuals who may not have been part of the faculty of a previous SDBP workshop or symposium. Presentations from younger investigators and clinicians are also encouraged. The SDBP Program Committee will communicate with the lead faculty member and are happy to answer any questions.

All Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the SDBP Program Committee, which will consider the merits of the proposal as well as the balance of topics presented at the meeting in making decisions to accept or reject a proposal.

The web site is available for workshop submission 24 hours a day until 5:00pm EST on April 21, 2020 from any location that has access to the Internet.
