Submissions close on Friday 31 March 2023
We plan to create a conference programme with our GPs’ and rural hospital doctors’ interests in mind which will appeal to the wider primary health care sector with informative presentations, panel discussions, and practical sessions featuring sector experts.
It’s a challenging time to be working in primary healthcare with workforce shortages and burnout numbers higher than they’ve ever been. Nobody chooses community medicine as a career because it’s the ‘easy’ option and our whakatauki this year speaks to that. We are about community, collaboration, working for the greater good, and being stronger together.
By speaking with a shared voice, we strengthen what is said, and create greater impact for change in our section. By weaving together and being connected we use the strength of the whole to do more, to be courageous and innovative, and to effectively advocate for better ways of working.
Being sustainable is so much more than greening general practice; it’s about how we support and grow the workforce so that in 10; 20; 50 years our communities are still served by a diverse workforce of highly skilled medical specialists who understand their specific and complex health needs and can deliver care.
Our nine sub themes are:
While we’re off the mark early this time, abstracts don’t close until Friday 31 March so there’s plenty of time for idea generation or working a research concept into a presentable idea. We’re so excited to hear what you come up with this time.
International borders are open too so please share with colleagues and use this as a chance to meet up in Auckland in July 2023.
Our Conference Programme Committee decides, once all the abstracts are in, which ones will be accepted. They develop the conference programme to ensure a range of professional interests are catered to. Proposing an abstract doesn’t always guarantee a place in the conference programme. Their word is final.
A condition of acceptance is that all presenting authors must register for the conference and are responsible for their own registration, travel, and accommodation expenses.
Abstracts for both formats (oral and electronic poster) are to be submitted via the online submission form (link below) must be clearly written in English and be a maximum of 300 words (excluding, title, authors and headings).
The exact length of oral presentations will be made clear to you at the time of acceptance (20 or 40 minutes including questions) and will depend upon the number of accepted oral presentations.
Detailed instructions on how electronic posters should be presented will also be provided at the time of abstract acceptance.
Abstracts for a workshop proposal must be clearly written in English and be a maximum of 300 words (excluding title, authors and headings).
