Abstract information

Abstracts will be accepted based on:

  • Relevance to patient-centred global surgery
  • Originality
  • Scientific rigour 
  • Preference will be given to research that adheres to the 'Handshake Rule',* meaning that at some point in the implementation of the research programme, the researcher will have directly interacted with patients and/or the community.

*Note that this is not limited to clinical research. Other examples of research programmes that could adhere to the 'Handshake Rule' include, but are not limited to, patient preference elicitation, narrative or qualitative research involving patients and their community, burden of disease assessments, ethnography, and phenomenological analysis.

We strongly encourage authors based in low and middle income countries to submit abstracts for consideration. 

The deadline for submission is now closed.
