Call for ePosters for International Forum Gothenburg 2022 is now closed
The ePosters at the International Forum
Our ePoster displays are a valuable opportunity to tell colleagues and experts from across the world about your improvement and safety projects, and to help others learn from your strategies and experience.
Every year we have hundreds of displays demonstrating a wide range of improvement and safety projects implemented in local, national or global settings. These are available onsite and online for all attendees to view and learn from.
We encourage you to share your achievements and contribute with your work and ideas to improving healthcare worldwide.
How will ePosters be viewed?
All ePosters will be made available on our online ePoster platform. Attendees in Gothenburg will be able to access the platform and browse ePosters on a number of large digital ePoster screens in the venue. Attendees will also be able to access the ePosters via the ePoster platform online on any device during and after the conference.
You can read our ePoster FAQs here.

Our ePoster topics
Your ePoster will be displayed by the topic or theme you select during the abstract submission process. We have seven topics that you can submit to:
One of the biggest challenges facing the global quality movement is limiting the harm caused by medical error. Abstracts in this stream should consider innovative ways to tackle this issue, considering how we prevent adverse events through advances in technology, process and human factors training. We’re also looking for approaches that analyse what goes well (frequent events) in order to create a system that is able to adapt to shifting and unexpected conditions without a reduction in quality of care.
Quality, Cost, Value
More care is not always better; overtesting and overprescribing can lead to a worse outcome for the patient and an intolerable strain on the healthcare system. Abstracts in this stream should consider how to improve efficiency of care by creating new models, process improvements or pathways that are focussed on what matters most to the patient.
Person and Family-Centred Care
A core value of the quality improvement movement is moving from a place where healthcare is provided to the patient, to a collaborative space where patients have agency over the design, process and outcomes from their care. Abstracts in this stream should consider how we keep the patient at the heart of healthcare, the value of co-designing projects with service users, and the benefits of patients taking the lead in improving lives for their communities.
Population and Public Health
The quality improvement movement recognises that to improve outcomes for a population we need to promote health as well as prevent illness, and ensure everyone has equal access to care. Abstracts in this stream should look at innovative approaches to improving health outcomes on a national scale, as well as how new approaches can reach the most vulnerable people in our communities.
Building Capability and Leadership
To implement a new revolution in quality of care, organisations need to empower individuals at every level to be agents for change. Abstracts in this stream should consider how we can disseminate learning and knowledge, build networks, optimise teams and scale up ideas from individual projects to international programmes.
Any successful quality improvement strategy needs to be underpinned by a robust methodology and framework so that results can be measured, evaluated and shared. Abstracts in this stream should consider how we analyse these methodologies, and what new models and approaches could transform the way we take ideas through to successful implementation.
Integrated Care – NEW for 2022
Integrated care is about bringing together local councils, healthcare providers, and other partners to support patients within their homes and communities. It removes traditional divisions between hospitals and family doctors, as well as those between physical and mental health to improve outcomes for all. Abstracts in this stream should demonstrate examples of leading integrated care in practice, and submissions are welcome from those working across the health and care sector.
