Scientific Poster Session

IPPA and the Summit Advisory Committee welcome all Summit delegates to participate in the Annual Intergovernmental Poster Session. The Summit Advisory Committee is an independent advisory group comprised of members from the Intergovernmental Panel Physician communities, partner organizations, partner government department representatives and other experts, as appropriate. The Committee provides expert feedback, advice, and information in the preparation and planning of the Panel Physician Training Summits held annually by the governments of the Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States, in partnership with the International Panel Physician Association (IPPA). In addition, the Committee assists in the development and execution of Training Summit events and activities.

Purpose of the Poster Session:

  1. To disperse information about important elements to the participants.
  2. To convey ideas in a manner that allows readers to grasp key concepts in a short time period.
  3. To present findings from authors’ daily practice and research which have been useful to improve panel site operations, clinical activities, functions, and/or procedures. Authors can generalize findings or data to support the best practices presented.
  4. To include material that is relevant to the poster category scope below.
  5. To present information that is visually pleasing and text that is easy to read.
  6. To present material that is understood by and relevant to diverse audiences who will attend the Summit.

The Poster Session will be held during the 2019 Intergovernmental Panel Physicians Training Summit. The Summit will take place April 9-12, 2019 at the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast in Accra, Ghana. During day two of the Summit (April 10), authors will have the opportunity to provide a guided tour of their posters and answer questions with the judging committee. Posters will remain on display through the last day of the conference. The Poster is a graphic presentation of authors' ideas and/or research. The authors illustrate their findings by displaying graphs, photos, diagrams and text on printed posters.

The suggested poster session topics are broadly defined below, however the SAC welcomes all topics related to Panel Physician practice including presentations on Electronic Record Management, Refugee Health, Risk Management, Regional Challenges and Solutions, Mental Health Guidelines, Outbreak Response Strategies and Vaccination Protocols.
