Call for Posters - Secure a Poster Display in London

Publish Date: Sep 06, 2016

Deadline: Nov 02, 2016

Why submit

Let the work you do inspire!

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

Watch our video to hear delegates share their thoughts about the value of poster presentations at the International Forum.

Benefits of displaying a poster

The poster displays are a valuable opportunity to tell 3,000 colleagues and experts from over 80 countries, who attend the International Forum every year, about your improvement projects and to help others learn from your strategies and experiences. By securing a poster display, you will be given the opportunity to:

  • Get published in the International Forum Conference Proceedings
  • Present your poster during our daily poster sessions
  • Showcase your achievements to colleagues and key international opinion leaders attending the International Forum
  • Demonstrate ideas that work and can be adapted by others
  • Start conversations and build networks for future collaborations with teams worldwide
  • Communicate your organisation's work and build your profile
  • 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 seven topics that you can submit to:

  • Safety
  • Quality, Cost, Value
  • Person and Family Centred Care
  • Population and Public Health
  • Building Capability and Leadership
  • Improvement Science and Research - read more below
  • 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 this April's International Forum in Gothenburg.
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.

The Improvement Science and Research poster topic

If your abstract presents the application of scientific methods for healthcare improvement, please submit it to the topic Improvement Science and Research. 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.
Those working on, or with an interest in the areas of improvement science and research, may also be interested in an opportunity to speak at the International Improvement Science and Research Symposium, taking place on the first day of the International Forum in London
