The Organising Committee takes great pleasure in inviting all healthcare professionals to submit their palliative care research for poster or oral presentation at the 12th Asia Pacific Hospice Conference. The theme for our 2017 conference is “Greater than the Sum of its Parts”. Submissions are sought for a number of different scientific categories and can be made via the abstract submission portal from 6 September 2016 to 18 February 2017 (EXTENDED). Accepted abstracts will be published in an electronic version for distribution to all conference delegates.
Before submitting the abstract, the Abstract Submitter will be required to confirm the following:
Disclosure of financial relationships that the author(s) may have with the manufacturer/supplier of any commercial products or services related to the work, should be indicated under the authors(s) section of the on-line submission portal.
All abstracts will undergo review by two independent reviewers. The review process will be blind. The Scientific Committee will determine whether abstracts will be accepted as oral or poster presentations with consideration to be given to the author’s preference. The review will be carried out according to the following criteria:
|1||Relevance to palliative care and conference theme||1 – 5|
|2||Originality / innovative nature of research||1 – 5|
|3||Scientific Content and Methodology||1 – 20|
|4||Organisation, clarity and conciseness of abstract||1 – 10|
