Thank you for your interest in submitting an abstract for consideration at the 2025 ASKP3 Annual Conference on January 23 – 25, 2025, in Austin, Texas, USA. 

 The ASKP3 Annual Conference is designed to provide a variety of educational topics that will advance the safe and ethical use of ketamine to treat mental health disorders and pain conditions. Attended by hundreds of multidisciplinary practitioners, it is an excellent opportunity to present your best practices and be recognized in front of your peers.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Please adhere to the following formatting guidelines when submitting your proposal. Following these instructions helps us review your submission more efficiently:

  • Who Can Apply to Speak? We encourage all disciplines to apply – physicians, psychotherapists,  and practitioners at all levels. All topics and practice modalities/settings will be considered.
  • All sessions will be live and in person. Please design your session to fit within a 50 (fifty) minute time frame. We recommend reserving ten (10) minutes at the end for Q&A.
  • Designate your desired session type “Main Stage” or “Concurrent Breakout.”
  • Our goal is balanced panels and equal visibility opportunities for all disciplines. Sessions that meet the criteria for all three CE types – continuing medical education, social work and nurse anesthesiology – will receive priority placement.
  • Co-Presenter(s) information: In addition to the submitter, you can enter two additional co-presenters for a maximum of three (3) presenters.
      • The submitter of the abstract will automatically be listed as the lead presenter on the proposed session and will be the main point of contact for the session. Please keep this in mind when drafting your submission.
      • We require the following for EACH presenter:
          • Job Title, Company Affiliation, and Credentials (degree(s)) exactly as you would want the information to appear on Conference materials if your session is accepted.

  • Three or more OBSERVABLE and MEASURABLE learning objectives. Learning objectives are statements that clearly describe what the learner will know or be able to do as a result of attending your educational presentation. Each objective should (1) focus on the learner and (2) contain a single action verb that describes a measurable behavior.
      • GOOD VERBS: List, Describe, Apply, Analyze, Assess

EVALUATION CRITERIA

Once again, all sessions must meet the criteria for continuing education. Additionally, proposed sessions will be evaluated on (but not limited to):

  • Relevance to the clinical management of mental health disorders
  • Diversity, quality, and depth of the topic
  • Balance and objectiveness of the topic
  • Scientific merit of the topic
  • Learning format of the session
  • Qualifications of the proposed faculty

REVIEW PROCESS

Our Conference Planning Committee, made up of a diverse group of mental health professionals, will review the proposals and educational concepts presented and evaluate the diversity, quality, and depth of the topic. Submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis; however, final determination as to which sessions will be selected does not occur until ALL abstracts have been submitted and reviewed.

SELECTION PROCESS

Unfortunately, it is likely that we will not be able to accommodate all submissions. After a thorough review and thoughtful consideration, determinations will be made as to which sessions will be selected for inclusion in the Conference agenda. Acceptance and denial e-mails will be sent out by July 2024 to all submitters.
