Call for ePosters

With Call for ePosters we give individuals and teams the opportunity to share their ideas and their work in improving quality of healthcare as ePosters. The ePosters will showcase the diverse improvement work taking place in Europe and beyond.

Call for ePosters for International Forum Europe 2021 is now closed

The ePosters at the International Forum

Our ePoster displays will be a valuable opportunity to share the outcomes of your improvement and safety projects with colleagues and experts from around the world. Now more than ever, your colleagues will be looking for ideas, strategies and learning outcomes that they can implement in their own settings.

Every year we have hundreds of displays demonstrating a wide range of improvement and safety projects implemented in local, national or global settings. We encourage you to share your achievements and contribute with your work and ideas to improving healthcare worldwide.

All projects approved will be made available as ePosters on our virtual event platform. Authors will also be given the chance to present their project orally online. 

Call for ePosters is now closed.

ePoster topics

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

Safety

One of the biggest challenges facing the global quality movement is limiting the harm caused by medical error. Abstracts in this stream should consider innovative ways to tackle this issue, considering how we prevent adverse events through advances in technology, process and human factors training. We’re also looking for approaches that analyse what goes well (frequent events) in order to create a system that is able to adapt to shifting and unexpected conditions without a reduction in quality of care.

Quality, Cost, Value

More care is not always better; overtesting and overprescribing can lead to a worse outcome for the patient and an intolerable strain on the healthcare system. Abstracts in this stream should consider how to improve efficiency of care by creating new models, process improvements or pathways that are focussed on what matters most to the patient.

Person and Family-Centred Care

A core value of the quality improvement movement is moving from a place where healthcare is provided to the patient, to a collaborative space where patients have agency over the design, process and outcomes from their care. Abstracts in this stream should consider how we keep the patient at the heart of healthcare, the value of co-designing projects with service users, and the benefits of patients taking the lead in improving lives for their communities.

Population and Public Health

The quality improvement movement recognises that to improve outcomes for a population we need to promote health as well as prevent illness, and ensure everyone has equal access to care. Abstracts in this stream should look at innovative approaches to improving health outcomes on a national scale, as well as how new approaches can reach the most vulnerable people in our communities.

Building Capability and Leadership

To implement a new revolution in quality of care, organisations need to empower individuals at every level to be agents for change. Abstracts in this stream should consider how we can disseminate learning and knowledge, build networks, optimise teams and scale up ideas from individual projects to international programmes.

Improvement Methods

Any successful quality improvement strategy needs to be underpinned by a robust methodology and framework so that results can be measured, evaluated and shared. Abstracts in this stream should consider how we analyse these methodologies, and what new models and approaches could transform the way we take ideas through to successful implementation.

Work in Progress

Most QI projects take a while to implement but you can still show the progress you are making and seek further guidance and inspiration from your peers. Abstracts in this stream should showcase the preliminary results of your project including your initial assessment of the problem, the methodology and design of the project and the current stage the work is at.
