2 - 5 December, 2024

Call for Speakers

Abstract presentations at Digital Health Week NZ 2024 will be a combination of 15-minute in-person presentations (includes 5-minute audience Q&A) and digital poster presentations.

We actively encourage submissions from both public and private hospitals, nursing, primary care, Māori or Pasifika, aged care, community care, NGOs, and allied health services. Making a submission for Digital Health Week NZ is an ideal way to showcase critical insights and learnings from digital health projects currently transforming Aotearoa’s health sector and enriching the patient healthcare experience.

Interested in submitting an abstract for the eHealth Nursing & Midwifery workshop? Please refer to the eHealth Nursing & Midwifery workshop details on the Pre-Conference website page for their abstract submission guidelines. (DO NOT submit your workshop abstract through the links below).

In-Person Presentations

Our concurrent conference presentations are single blind peer reviewed by a committee of leading digital health experts from across healthcare, IT and business and are curated to align with the chosen topic streams for this year’s conference. This offers our delegates a unique conference experience exploring the latest academic research, technology trends, innovations, and transformation successes and failures across the sector.

Timing: 15 minutes (includes 5-minute group audience Q&A)

Maximum Presenters: TWO (2) and only ONE (1) for group audience Q&A

Digital Poster Presentations

Digital poster presentations offer authors the opportunity to present their abstracts in a digital format that can be accessed by conference delegates in their own time or during a dedicated poster session. We also offer digital poster presentations for abstract authors who do not receive a speaking slot, but we would still like to give the chance to share their work. Digital posters will be displayed in a dedicated digital poster area within the expo hall. They will be displayed on accessible screens for people to view and discuss, also enabling you to share your work with colleagues who gather to view it.

Timing: 3-5 minutes

Maximum Presenters: TWO (2)

Abstract Submission Categories

There are six overarching topic categories to choose from this year. Submitters can also pick one or more keywords to further categorise their submission.

The aim is to provide practical insights into the application of the latest thinking, innovations and emerging initiatives. We want to hear about realistic digital health initiatives and projects. Your idea/project should solve a problem/challenge in the healthcare system through the use of technology and/or information. Ideally, your idea/project should have been partly or fully implemented. If your idea/project is still in the planning phases you may still submit it; however be sure you have validated it with research and evidence and can clearly articulate the practical aspects or learning the audience would get.

Not sure which category to use? If you aren't sure, please submit into the 'Data & Analytics' category. That is the catch-all category that will consider any topic angle that doesn't obviously fit within the other categories.
