The ePosters at the International Forum

Our ePoster displays are a valuable opportunity where colleagues and experts from across the world can share their improvement and safety projects, helping others learn from their strategies and experience.

Every year we have hundreds of displays demonstrating a wide range of improvement and safety projects implemented in local, national or global settings. These are available onsite and online for all attendees to view and learn from.

We would like to share with you some information on how ePosters will be showcased this year in Melbourne.

How will ePosters be viewed?

ePoster displays

All presenters will be invited to create an ePoster which will be made available on our online ePoster platform.

Attendees in Melbourne will be able to browse all posters on a number of large digital ePoster screens in the venue.

Attendees will also be able to access the posters via our ePoster platform online on any device during and up to six months after the conference.

Oral presentations

Attendees will be able to hear ePoster presenters discuss their poster project on our ePoster Stage in the Exhibition Hall. The ePoster sessions will be organised by topic, hosted by our ePoster champions and will take place on either Tuesday 31 October or the morning of Wednesday 1 November.

If you are attending the conference online, you can watch online presenters discuss their project during a 5-minute recorded presentation. The presentations will be shown on the virtual platform on either Tuesday 31 October or Wednesday 1 November and will be accompanied by a live Q&A chat with online attendees.

Further information, including how to sign up and present, will be sent to all registered poster authors in due course.

The ePoster topics

The ePosters will be displayed by the following topic or themes:

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI)

Submissions to this topic will look at the definitions of equity, diversity, and inclusion principles and the steps that need to be taken to unite inclusion and quality improvement practices at all levels. How can we achieve health equity for all? How do we learn to work more effectively with rural and indigenous communities to improve value-based care and outcomes? Abstracts will explore how to ensure EDI is implemented across all areas of healthcare and how this benefits employees, patients, families, and key stakeholders within the quality improvement ecosystem.

Workforce, wellbeing and engaging staff across the organisation and culture

Evidence suggests staff health and wellbeing initiatives delivered within organisations can improve health, productivity, and decrease sickness absences, yet the adoption of these services remains a challenge. Abstracts on this topic will explore the strategies, a needs-led approach to implement and initiate wellbeing programmes; and how to build organisational cultures that support staff, health and wellbeing.

Patient safety and co-creating care with service users

The ability to live well and maintain relationships is powered by a partnership of equals between people and healthcare professionals which recognises that patients, communities, and peer networks need to work alongside healthcare professionals, the community and the voluntary sector to support patient safety. Abstracts should consider how to improve the efficiency of patient safety and care by creating new models, processes and improvements that are focussed on what matters most to the patient.

Sustainability, climate change and environmental impact on health

Abstracts on this topic will explore how we handle different kinds of disturbances to the system, reconciliation between the health system and the community; and what support can be provided for improvement. We will discuss how we can provide better learnings and growth in terms of understanding from the community and consumer perspectives, and patients around. The bigger question being, how do health systems cope with climate change?

Emerging technologies and digital health

Improvement and transformation are happening at an extraordinary scale and pace. How can we harness the opportunity that technology brings to deliver better health? How do we create more agile systems? How can we make the best use of the data we can now access? Can we combine rapid evidence-generation with clinician expertise? How can we evaluate digital health innovations for health and safety? Abstracts submitted to this topic will explore these areas in more detail and provide evidence-based recommendations to support the outcomes.

Flow and safety

How do we get healthcare systems to work smoothly by delivering safe care to those that need it time after time? What are the workforce implications of a fast-paced healthcare system and what are the changes in models of care? And how do we address ongoing waves of covid on quality and safety in the healthcare system? Abstracts submitted to this topic will explore the subject of flow and safety in more detail and provide examples of projects where systems are in place.

Innovation in health

The quality improvement movement relies on innovation for change. Abstracts for 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 communities. Innovations don’t have to be high-tech, they can be social, digital, process or device innovations – but what does this look like now compared to the future?

People powered change and process

People powered change and process in healthcare seeks to empower individuals to take control of their own health and wellness. It encourages people to become active participants in their own healthcare decisions, rather than relying solely on medical professionals. This includes advocating for better access to healthcare, advocating for better quality of care, and advocating for better patient rights. It also seeks to create a more equitable healthcare system, where everyone has access to the same quality of care regardless of their economic or social status. Abstracts in this stream will provide practical examples of how these issues are being resolved and demonstrate how this is creating positive change in communities, particularly:

  • access to services
  • quality and cost of care i.e., lack of evidence-based approaches and the provision of sub-standard care
  • workforce shortages and
  • the ageing population
