The 11th Health Services and Policy Research Conference  will be held at the Pullman Auckland, New Zealand from 4 to 6 December 2019. The theme of this years conference is 'Addressing Health Service Inequities to Improve Health System Performance'.

The Conference’s well-balanced mixture of invited speakers, proffered papers and delegate opportunities for contribution and discussion, make it a “must attend” event for all in the health services and policy community.

Invitation to submit symposium proposals

Authors are invited to submit a group of related presentations (3-4 presenters) as a symposium proposal around a central theme. A symposium offers an opportunity for you and colleagues to present your work on a specific topic of interest. The 75 minutes (60 minutes presentation followed by 15 minutes for questions) allocated to these sessions allow a chance to present a substantial body of research findings, incorporating debate and discussion on key issues.

The call for symposiums  closes Friday April 5 2019. Please plan your timetable for preparation and submission carefully.  All abstracts submissions must be made via the website by completing the online submission form and attaching your abstract as per the layout guidelines.

Authors whose proposals are not accepted for presentation as part of a symposia will have the opportunity to submit an abstract for consideration as an oral or poster.
