Parker Seminars and Parker Research Center were pleased to host the Inaugural Abstracts for Clinical Evidence (ACE) program at Parker Seminars Las Vegas in February 2022. This new venue provided a knowledge translation opportunity directly to clinicians. It was prepared by an international team of clinicians and scientists using the latest poster technology, iPosters, an online interactive, multimedia, virtual poster platform.

Interest forms considered previously published literature, encore abstracts, and new unpublished research in the areas of original research (clinical trials, epidemiology/health service research), literature/systematic/scoping reviews, and case studies/case series. iPosters included a clinical pearl and opportunities for clinicians to enhance research literacy by exposure to high-quality, rigorous research presentations.

Parker Seminars is excited to honor and recognize the winners from the recent inaugural event! The winners include the following:

  • Early Career Scientist - Craig Moore: “The COVID-19 Pandemic, Evidence-Based Public Health and Chiropractic Practice: A Survey on Impact and Response Across Four Continents.”
  • Independent Scientist - Stacie Salsbury: “Doing Our Best for Patient Safety. A Qualitative Study with Spinal Manipulative Therapy Providers in Community-Based Settings.”
