The conference content committee invites submissions of abstracts (in English language only) for presentations related to the scope and purpose of the conference and the Organisation of Primary Care in general. Please check the list of EFPC 2023 Barcelona Conference – Themes.
Deadline for submission: Thursday 25 May 2023 (Presentation at the conference needs to be on-site! Remote presentations cannot be facilitated)
Submissions should follow one of the following formats:
Research abstracts: These presentations will provide the results, completed or in advanced in-progress form, of original research projects. Papers related to PhD projects, either completed or in progress, are especially encouraged. The selected abstracts will be presented via a max 12 min PowerPoint presentation and discussed within workshops that are moderated by key-experts in the specific theme.
Policy debate posters: These posters describe significant developments in policy (whether governmental, organisational or any other) that affect primary care associated with the themes of the conference. In particular national, regional or local policymakers are invited to provide new policy developments. Posters need clear statements for debate. All selected posters will be presented/defended in specific parallel sessions with a 15 minutes time slot for each poster. These sessions are located in innovative settings, such as “debate corners”, animated by an expert facilitator.
Video presentations: Projects and developments focusing on practice-oriented questions and reporting on recent experiences and innovations in primary care. These presentations should present case descriptions of primary care on the national, regional or local level. The selected videos will be displayed prominently with non-stop shows during the conference (length should be around 3 minutes and not exceeding the maximum of 5 minutes) and will be presented/defended in specific parallel sessions with a maximum of 15 minutes time-slot for each video.
Would you be interested to organize a full workshop, debate session (45 min) or research workshop (90 min), please get in contact with the EFPC secretariat to ask for the submission format and conditions.
