Three categories of abstracts will be considered for the 2018 PLUGS Summit.
1. Scientific: This category includes hypothesis-driven studies related to laboratory stewardship, and has measurable outcomes.
2. Case Study: This category is open to case-based observations related to laboratory stewardship. For example, this category is appropriate to share one-off interventions or good catches related to improving the value of laboratory testing.
3. Quality Improvement Processes: This category is available for descriptions of systematic process changes related to improving workflows and outcomes related to laboratory testing. For example, interventions to prevent order errors, streamline workflow, and facilitate case review.
