Call for Posters

With Call for Posters we give opportunity to individuals and teams to share their ideas and their work in improving quality of healthcare. The poster displays are the perfect opportunity to meet and learn from your colleagues from Asia Pacific and around the world.

Deadline for submissions: 2 May 2017

Submit an abstract to secure a poster display in Kuala Lumpur 2017 and influence patient outcomes

Why submit

The poster displays show a wide range of improvement and safety projects and are available onsite for all attendees to view and learn from. The displays are a valuable opportunity to tell colleagues and experts about your improvement projects and to help others learn from your strategies and experience. Submitting a poster offers you an opportunity to have your work included in the International Forum Conference Proceedings and to present you work to delegates on our Poster Stage. More information to come.

We encourage you to share your achievements and contribute with your work and ideas to improving healthcare worldwide.

  • Showcase your achievements to key international opinion leaders
  • Communicate your organisation’s work
  • Build your profile by having your work displayed at a BMJ/IHI event
  • Share successes with your colleagues and influence outcomes on a global scale

Poster topics

Your poster will be displayed by the topic or theme you select during the abstract submission process. We have six topics that you can submit to:

  • Safety
  • Quality, Cost, Value
  • Person and Family Centred Care
  • Population and Public Health
  • Building Capability and Leadership
  • Work in Progress – read more below

The Work in Progress poster topic

Our new Work in Progress poster topic received high level of interest at the recent International Forum in Singapore.

If you have any improvement work in progress, you can now showcase the preliminary results of your project at the International Forum by submitting to the topic Work in Progress. In this poster theme, you can present your initial assessment of the problem, the methodology and design of the project and the current stage the work is at. You can present your anticipated outcomes, your preliminary findings, and the challenges or obstacles you have encountered to date. Your submission will still be peer reviewed, but acknowledged for the stage of completion you are currently at. During the International Forum we will hold specific discussion groups and workshops aimed at people who are at a preliminary stage or in the middle of undertaking an improvement project – this is the perfect opportunity to seek guidance, and inspiration from your peers.
