Call for abstracts: HSRUK Conference 2019
The call for abstracts and sessions for the 12th annual Health Services Research UK Conference is now open.
Health Services Research UK (HSRUK) is dedicated to the promotion of health services research in policy and practice. The HSRUK19 conference is open to everyone interested in health services and systems research, and offers you the opportunity to hear about the latest research, build your network and meet the agenda-setters.
The 2019 call invites submissions for individual abstracts (for oral presentation and/or poster presentation) or for whole sessions (comprising a number of linked oral presentations within one session). We welcome abstracts on all aspects of health services, systems and policy research, especially research that will have a positive impact on patients and the health service, builds research capacity in the NHS or advances research methodology.
To find out more and submit your abstract or session proposal, go to the HSRUK19 conference website.
The call for abstracts closes on Sunday 13 January 2019 at midnight.
