Call for Abstracts Now Open!

This is your chance to share your work with people who are passionate about improving health care!

Year after year, we look forward to highlighting all the excellent work taking place across the health system at the Quality Forum. We’re now accepting abstracts for rapid fire and storyboard presentations during the main Forum programming.

In 300 words or less, tell us how you’re improving the quality of care for patients, families and communities, fostering a high-quality health system, or creating better environments for those who work within it.

The deadline for submissions is September 6, 2024.

Submit Your Abstract

Abstracts can be submitted in one of two categories, depending on the stage of your work. You can submit as many abstracts as you’d like by completing one or both of the online submission forms below. Be sure to review the scoring and selection criteria carefully, as they are different for each category!

Review the submission checklist to ensure you have what you need to submit your abstract before entering the submission portal.

Outcomes are initiatives underway or complete with demonstrated results and lessons that can be shared. Projects do not have to be considered a success – there are always valuable learning opportunities!

Ideas describe innovative thinking, promising practices or emerging ways of how to improve care that are too young to have results. You can seek input, inspire collaboration or spark action at an early stage.

Presentation Formats

You can choose which presentation format(s) you would like your abstract to be considered for during the submission process.

The Quality Forum receives hundreds of abstracts each year and doesn’t have room to offer presentation opportunities to all the excellent projects that are taking place across the province! The Abstract Review Committee will only consider abstracts for the formats they were submitted under, so we encourage you to select all presentation formats that you are interested in – not just your top choice! – to increase your chances of being accepted.

Both presentation formats are limited to a maximum of three presenters for inclusion in event materials.

Engage with participants using slides, video, or other media in a 12-minute oral presentation that will be scheduled as part of the main Forum programming. Each rapid fire session is comprised of three 12-minute presentations, followed by a Q&A period during which all speakers will have an opportunity to interact with the audience.

Display a 44” x 44” poster throughout the main two days of the Quality Forum. You’ll have the opportunity to network and receive feedback on your work from other participants during breaks and lunches, as well as the annual Storyboard Reception on the first evening of the main Forum.

If you or your team has an idea for a session that does not fit within the presentation formats listed above, now is the time to let us know! Send a short description of your idea to during the abstract submission period so our Steering Committee can consider it for the broader Quality Forum program.

Review Process

Abstracts will be anonymized and scored by a group of abstract reviewers consisting of clinical and non-clinical experts from across the province. Your abstract will be reviewed twice, with each reviewer assigning a score out of 50 for a total score out of 100.

The Abstract Review Committee will then work to develop a balanced program that includes a variety of topics related to improving health quality.

All abstracts will be notified of the status of their submission by October 2024.
