AFHTO 2018 Conference: Call for presentation & poster abstracts

You’re doing the work. Each and every day.

Now it’s time to share it with everyone.


Present your ideas and initiatives at the AFHTO 2018 Conference:
“Relationship Design with Starfield in Mind”

Thanks to the 4 Cs of primary care, interprofessional teams are dedicated to providing excellent care for their patients on a daily basis. Primary care teams are tireless in their mission and their rewards are healthier patients and healthier communities. But in this complex health system, sometimes more is needed.

What if that little program you’re quietly doing, achieving great results, delivering more efficiencies, relieving patients of unnecessary complications, could spread? What if your peers in other small towns could learn more from your trial and error and go straight to better outcomes? What if this happened all across Ontario?

It can, if you submit an abstract to present a concurrent session or poster in 6 core themes at the AFHTO 2018 Conference on October 24 & 25, 2018.

The deadline to submit abstracts for concurrent sessions and posters is
May 4, 2018 at 5:00 PM (EDT)
