Presentation Types

We are inviting delegates to submit an expression of interest for either a rapid presentation with a twist or a poster presentation at the Australian Health Promotion Association Symposium in Canberra. The conference theme is ‘Better Practice, Better Placed’ with three sub-themes designed to encourage broad discussions about health promotion. The symposium will have a real focus on networking, creating opportunities for sharing and facilitating discussions. We encourage you to share your work with colleagues. We welcome expressions of interest for presentations relating to policy, practice or research that share ideas, offer critical comment or debate, pose problems, offer solutions, or describe program, policy  or research success and/or failure, with a focus on lessons learnt and opportunities for translation.

1. Rapid presentations with a twist
At the AHPA symposium 2018 we are breaking away from traditional delegate presentations with the ‘rapid presentations with a twist’. There is no PowerPoint, no lecterns and no leisurely 10 minutes. These presentations are short, sharp and designed for you to share your work, your idea, your problem or your research to colleagues in a way that is relaxed, engaging, succinct and meaningful. Participants will join a themed round table group of colleagues working in a similar area. Each participant will have 3 minutes to present to colleagues and the remainder of that session provides the opportunity to share, discuss, problem solve and network around the table.

Prior to the symposium a webinar with tips on putting together successful, succinct presentations will be offered to presenters.

2. Poster sessions
We are also seeking expressions of interest for poster presenters for this symposium.  Poster presentation sessions will be designed to be interactive with opportunity for discussion and networking.
