Abstract Submission Guidelines

Presenting an abstract at the CACPR Annual Spring Conference is an excellent opportunity to share your research, best practices, and highlight your facility to colleagues and leaders in the field of Cardiac Rehabilitation. Abstracts are welcome on any topic pertinent to this year’s theme: “Embracing Complexities to Improve Patient-Centred Cardiac Rehabilitation Care.”

Accepted abstract titles, authors and credentials are printed in the Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Prevention (JCRP) Conference Issue, and the CACPR produced Current Issues and Trends in Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Rehabilitation (CV Edge) - Conference Highlights issue. Full abstracts will be included in the online version of the same issue. Posters are seen by a wide variety of cardiovascular professionals.

Poster presenters for accepted abstracts are required to register for and attend the conference.

Electronic Submission of Scientific Abstracts for Presentation at CACPR 2024 Spring Conference

A scientific abstract contains data from a study that has been completed. The study itself may represent a pilot study or may be the results of a large trial. Submitting the protocol for an on-going large trial is also acceptable. Descriptive or observational research abstracts may be submitted as long as there is a research question, the methods are described and results are presented. You must focus your thoughts as the space on the abstract is limited.

Criteria for Abstract Submissions:

  • Only original research (i.e., data not previously presented, published or simultaneously submitted) will be considered. Abstracts must contain data from completed studies or work well under way.
  • Your abstract should be of the informative type, containing:
  1. Statement of rationale for the study.
  2. Statement of the objectives of the study.
  3. Statement of the methodology used.
  4. Statement of results - data must be presented and statistical significance addressed.
  5. Statement of conclusion(s). The conclusion must be based on the results rather than a hopeful promise of additional data or discussion.
  • The maximum number of words is now 400 not including the title and authors.
  • Completely capitalize the title.
  • Initials or first names must precede the last name. Institutional affiliation and city are required. 
  • Street addresses, zip codes, degrees and grant support are NOT to be listed in the abstract.
  • Type the entire body of the abstract in one paragraph.
  • When using abbreviations, spell out in full the first mention followed by the abbreviation in parentheses.
  • Do not use capitals or underline for emphasis.
  • Check accuracy of spelling and hyphenation. Your abstract will appear in print exactly as submitted.
  • Submissions in French are welcome; however, all French submissions must be accompanied by the English translation.
