Posters and oral Communications

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is great a pleasure to invite you to submit the abstracts for the oral presentations and scientific posters for the 7th International Hospital Congress under the theme: “Citizen Involvement and accountability in the National Health Service”.

Considering the interventions of invited experts, both national and international, this intends to create room for reflection and for sharing the experiences and knowledge with the professionals working in the field, as well as all those that within the scope of their academic path are developing research projects.

Therefore we hereby invite all the health professionals in the area (medical doctors, nurses, hospital managers, health technicians and all the professionals in the area), university teachers with interests in the health area, researchers, graduate and post-graduate students, masters and PhD students in health sciences to present abstract proposals within the objectives and under the themes of the Congress, namely for ongoing projects or those that have been recently concluded, creative scientific articles with new research perspectives, solutions and/or apps for real problems as well as empirical and/or evaluation work.  

All the submitted abstracts, anonymously and with no reference to the affiliation of the authors, will be evaluated and classified by the Scientific Committee of the 7th International Hospital Congress. There will be two categories of awards: “Best oral communication” and “Best Scientific Poster”. The award ceremony will take place during the closing session of the Congress. 

The winners for the scientific poster and oral communication will be invited to publish at the magazine “The Hospital” with a circulation of 4000 copies, and property of the Portuguese Association for the Hospital Development”.
