Call for Abstracts

SUBMIT YOUR SPEAKER ABSTRACT NOW

We invite researchers and clinicians to present a research project or health services innovation on the theme of “Shifting priorities: balancing acute and primary care services”.  

The range of work we invite includes:

  • applied research
  • methodology papers
  • incomplete work
  • opinion pieces
  • research outcomes


You may submit your research project or health services innovation in the format of an unstructured overview or traditional structured format (background, aims, methods, results and conclusion).  Our reviewers are interested in what your research did, and why; what it achieved; and what the impact has been (if known).  

Our reviewers welcome submissions from clinicians and researchers.

SUBMIT THREE MINUTE THESIS ENTRY

Entries open: Monday 20 March
Entries close: Friday 9 June
Author notification: Tuesday 15 August  

Entry to this competition is independent from other submission categories and an author’s work may be submitted additionally as an oral or poster presentation. These submissions will be considered through independent processes, and outcome in one category will not impact up acceptance of similar work in another.  

Symposium Oral Presentations

Symposium Oral submissions are now closed. 

Abstracts open: Monday 20 March
Abstracts close: Friday 7 April
Author notification: Wednesday 10 May

Authors will be notified of symposium oral presentation submission acceptance five weeks prior to the closure of individual oral submissions. If the symposium is not accepted, individual presenters (nominated in the symposium submission) may choose to submit their planned presentation as a standard, stand-alone, oral presentation or poster.

An application for an individual oral or poster presentation is a separate process to the application for a symposium and presentations will not be accepted in both categories. Authors interested in being part of a symposium are encouraged to submit their work as a symposium first, and only submit an individual abstract if their symposium is not accepted.

Preparing your abstract submission

  • Abstracts must be submitted via the online submission portal and by completing an online, text-only submission form
  • Authors are required to include a description of the research project or health services innovation, which may take the form of an unstructured overview, or a traditional, structured format
  • Authors are required to select one primary and two secondary ‘tags’ to describe their work
  • Submissions will be favoured at review if they incorporate original data of high quality and/or an analysis that extends existing knowledge (rather than projects that are underway, or presentations of research protocols)
  • If the abstract does not conform to the submission guidelines, it may be considered ineligible for acceptance
  • All submissions should be written in English. Submissions should specify all abbreviations in full at the first mention, followed by the abbreviation in parentheses; thereafter the abbreviation only should be used. All submissions should be checked thoroughly for spelling and grammar. Do not include references.

ABSTRACT TAGS

Please select one primary and two secondary 'tags' to describe your work from the following drop-down lists. There are no "streams" or "sub-themes" for the conference as yet. Instead the review committee will use these tags to determine the best groupings of presentations to create themed sessions.
