Abstracts for Poster Snapshot presentations

Submission deadline

The deadline for poster abstract submissions is 5 PM, 20th August 2023

You are invited to submit an abstract/s to be reviewed for inclusion in the symposium program as a poster snapshot presentation. The Abstracts Subcommittee will consider work in progress, narrative presentations and work presented at other fora (although this must be clearly stated).

Abstracts are being accepted across three themes:

  1. MyDispense Research / MyDispense Sharing of Practice – encompasses work on the implementation, evaluation, and/or student/teaching experience using MyDispense.
  2. Simulation Teaching Innovation – may involve presentation of data or sharing practice on use of simulation in teaching and learning (other than MyDispense, such as Electronic Health Records).
  3. Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Simulation- encompasses any presentation of data or sharing practice on equity, diversity and inclusion through healthcare simulation

Poster presentations will not be displayed on poster boards. Posters will be made available in the following ways:

  1. Available in symposium e-booklet
  2. Presented in Poster Snapshot sessions, where authors present 2-minute oral highlights of the work delivered in conjunction with a single PowerPoint slide (no animations).

All abstracts must be written in English with the body word count limited to 300 words(excluding references).

Abstracts are required to include the following sections: Background, Aim, Methods, Results and Conclusion.

Up to five keywords should also be suggested. A maximum of eight authors is allowed per abstract. Please indicate the corresponding/presenting author.

Reference citations are based on the Harvard style of referencing. References (optional) should be alphabetised at the end of the manuscript text, in the following formats:

Additional submission requirements

The following is an overview of what you are required to prepare if your abstract is accepted:

1. One Poster Snapshot slide requirements:

  • This slide should convey key points only, as suitable for a 2-minute presentation.
  • Create ONE slide in PowerPoint (or a similar presentation program such as Keynote)
  • Use landscape orientation with slide set to Standard Dimensions (4:3)
  • Do not include animations in the slide.
  • All contents should be simple and not overloaded with detail – minimising detail maximises information transfer.
  • Save the final version as PPT and send the slide to mydispense1@monash.edu by 21st September 2023.
