Themes and Streams
The theme for DRIVERS 2022 was open, but topics covered this year include:
- Quality improvement projects
- Innovative service delivery/patient perspectives
- Outcomes in rural and regional settings
- Translating research into clinical practice
- Digital health and technology
- Gap analysis/improving equity (from any aspect) Indigenous, CALD, LGBTQIA+, Remoteness, etc
- Clinical supervision and mentoring
- Future workforce
DRIVERS 2022 presenters are grouped into the three streams:
Scientific Presentations (3 categories)
Dynamic Oral Scientific Presentations
This presentation stream allows for 6 minutes of talking, followed by 2 minutes of Q&A and an unlimited number of slides (be realistic in including slides you’ll actually speak to!)
Rapid Fire Scientific Poster Presentations
An A0 visual poster will anchor this short presentation (we will print your poster for you - please save as a PDF and set paper size as A0 - 841 x 1188 mm.) 3 minutes of talking and 1 minute of Q&A, with a maximum of 4 slides allowed including the title slide.
Scientific Poster Display
A further set of visual posters will be on display summarising abstracts that the Scientific Committee considered suitable for inclusion on the program. (We will print your poster - please save as a PDF and set paper size as A0 - 841 x 1188 mm.)
Reflective Presentations: Vision, Innovation and Excellence
This category has two sections in the program, Stream A presenters have 6 minutes, Stream B has 4 minutes - all presenters must be ready for 2 minutes of Q&A . Presenters are able to submit an unlimited number of slides - but please be realistic in your slide deck inclusions!
Presenters can discuss prior insights or activities with a view to developing more effective approaches and improving quality in regional health care. If non-evidence-based, presentations must be based around practising medicine in a rural or regional setting.
Case Study Blitz presentations
This presentation stream blitzes through key clinical messages, with 3 minutes of talking, no Q&A and a maximum of 4 slides (including the title slide - but we’re cool if some additional, image-only slides are snuck in!) Presenters give a brief snapshot of an interesting case study which has lessons for rural and regional healthcare.
The scientific committee allocated presentations to the most appropriate stream.
