2015 MEDTRADE SPRING CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
Guidelines for 2015 Submissions:
In order to better address the hottest topics within the HME industry and the needs of Medtrade attendees, the Medtrade Educational Advisory Board developed the following suggested topics and proposal guidelines.

1. Medtrade does not provide speaker honorariums or reimburse for speaker travel, lodging, or other incidental expenses. Travel and expenses are the responsibility of the speaker.

2. Use the suggested topics listed below as a guide when creating your proposal(s). Please do not use the suggested topics as actual session titles.

3. Submit your proposal on time.

4. Use spell check to correct spelling and grammatical errors. DO NOT submit your proposal in all CAPS. Suggestion: create proposal in Word document, spell check, then cut and paste into database proposal.

5. Spell “Medtrade” correctly in your submissions. It is “Medtrade” and NOT “MedTrade”.

6. Plan your session content accordingly and keep in mind all sessions are 1 hour in length and are not an infomercial.

7. Rehabilitation & Assistive Technology as well as Sleep, Oxygen & Respiratory sessions will offer continuing education credits managed by Medtrade and approved by The University of Pittsburgh and AARC. SPECIAL NOTE: Proposals for the Rehab track will need to provide 2-3 references to support the content. Reference means a publication or source as to where the information came from. A research study published in a scientific journal is usually the best evidence but will also accept references to textbooks, government policies, etc when research is not available.

8. Before submitting your session keep the following in mind:
• By submitting this form, you agree to conduct your presentation in a structured, informative manner to that employed by high quality education institutions
• You will not present in an ad-hoc or ad-lib manner, nor will you use your presentation as a forum for advancement or promotion of your services
• You will not distribute literature that promotes the products or services you sell
• You will not have slides of your products, books or services in the PowerPoint
• You will not make appointments with attendees during your seminar hour
• You will not have seminar attendees participate in a contest, promotion or free app for your product/business or service via text/cell phone/facebook-other social media and/or email before, after or during your seminar presentation.

9. You will use the Medtrade PowerPoint template sent to accepted presenters for every slide in your presentation.
