Why submit

Let the work you do inspire! Our poster displays are hugely popular. They are a valuable opportunity to tell over 1,500 colleagues and experts from over 35 countries, who attend the International Forum every year, about your improvement and safety projects and to help others learn from your strategies and experiences. 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.

Poster guidelines will be published shortly.

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.

The Improvement Science and Research poster topic

If your abstract presents the application of scientific methods for healthcare improvement, please submit it to the Improvement Science and Research poster topic.

Abstracts submitted to this topic would be focused on results of studies that apply innovation, testing, or implementation to improve health or healthcare at a local, regional, or national scale. We are interested in hearing about studies or reports that use evaluation designs appropriate for quality improvement – including analytic, time-series, statistical process control, qualitative, and mixed-method studies.
