ASM 2024: Call for abstracts

We invite abstracts for presentations at the NZCPHM Annual Scientific Meeting.  Abstracts may be relevant to the conference theme, or on any public health topic.

The closing date for abstracts is Wednesday 24 July, at 9:00am.

Presentations are 10 minutes in length, followed by 3 minutes for questions.

Content of abstracts

Abstracts should be informative and summarise the main points and conclusions that will be presented.

The abstract must meet the following conditions:

  • 200 to 300 words in length
  • Structured with the following subheadings: Background and aims; Methods; Results; Conclusions.
  • Include practice points - up to three implications for the practice of public health medicine (e.g. What should public health medical specialists do differently as a result of your work? What were the main things you learned by doing this? What would you do differently next time?). These should be written as numbered bullet points under the heading “practice points” at the end of the abstract.

A template for abstract submission can be found here.

Authors will be notified of abstract acceptance by 9 August 2024.
