Call for posters

The call for posters is an opportunity for individuals and teams to showcase the latest knowledge and potential solutions to support the future of healthcare leadership and management. 

FAQs and information on submitting a video poster are available for download below. The deadline for submissions is Monday 30 July.

 

Key reasons to submit an abstract

The poster displays will show a wide range of healthcare leadership, management and quality improvement 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 projects and to help others learn from your strategies and experience.

  • Showcase your achievements to key international opinion leaders

  • Present and communicate your organisation's work to attendees on our poster stage

  • Build your profile by having your work displayed at an FMLM/BMJ event

  • Share successes with your colleagues and influence outcomes on a global scale

Poster Stage

Once you have signed up to present a poster, you will then be given an opportunity to deliver a short presentation about your project on the main Poster Stage. The audience will then get the opportunity to ask you questions.

NEW - poster competition

This year will feature a competition for the best poster in each of the six conference themes. The prize for each winning poster will include a year's free FMLM membership (applicable for existing and potential members). Don't miss out on the opportunity for your work to receive this accolade!

Video Posters

In addition to displaying a poster, authors are invited to produce a short video explaining their ideas and work in healthcare leadership and management.

This opportunity is available only if you have an accepted abstract and have registered to attend and display your poster during the conference.

What is a video poster?
The video posters are short videos where the presenter discusses the nature and impact of their research/project which is illustrated on the printed poster they are displaying at the conference. This is a great opportunity to explain your ideas and improvement work in a more engaging way to a wider audience.

These video posters will feature on the Leaders in Healthcare YouTube channel, and will be pushed out through our social media channels. Our aim is to enable you to present your project to a wider global audience in a personal, engaging way. It is envisaged that video posters will enhance viewers' understanding and appreciation of a poster through the accessible presentation of the main results and conclusions reported, and increase the reach of the project.
