We also welcome contributions focusing on methodological developments and challenges relevant to the topic area.

All abstracts submitted and accepted for oral paper presentations will be considered for the Best Oral Paper Award and the Excellence in Translating Evidence into Practice’ Award’.

INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS

All abstracts must include the following subheadings: Aim and intended outcome/educational objectives, Format, Content, Intended audience (include a maximum number of participants if you wish).

Workshops should be relevant for participants from different disciplines across primary care research, education, and clinical practice, and from diverse career stages. Workshops should aim to use innovative formats and not merely presenting in a didactic format.

Possible workshop could consider covering areas such as:

  • Research dissemination, knowledge transfer and/or impact
  • Working with communities
  • Research methodology (qualitative methods, quantitative methods, mixed methods or big data research)
  • Primary care education
  • Policy, advocacy and research translation

If you have an idea that does not fit into one of these areas please get in touch with us via email to secretariat@aaapc.org.au.

All workshops will be 60 minutes in length. 

If you require delegates to complete pre-conference reading, quick survey or short assignment, please indicate this in your submission including the estimated amount of time required.
