Emergency Care Research Symposium

Emergency Care Research Symposium – Abstract Submissions

We invite health and medical researchers to submit an abstract of original work for consideration as a poster at the 2024 Gold Coast Health Emergency Care Research Symposium. We encourage submissions from novice researchers, which might include bachelor/honours level students, PhD students, and health professionals engaged in research, as well as more established researchers. The theme of the conference is ‘Embedding research into clinical practice’ and encompasses a wide range of health and healthcare-related topics. In keeping with the theme of the symposium, all submissions should have relevance to Emergency Care. Pre-clinical (i.e., bench) research is not the focus of this conference.
