Call for Abstracts: EUPHA-HWR second midterm Conference: Event Cancelled
When: 10 Jun 2021 - 11 Jun 2021
Organiser: EUPHA Health Workforce Research (HWR) section

It is highly unlikely that the COVID-19 pandemic situation will permit a meeting in June in Lisbon, and with the EPH Conference in November EUPHA-HWR already has another virtual event.

Under these conditions EUPHA-HWR decided to cancel the midterm conference.

EUPHA-HWR invites you to re-submit your abstract for the EPH Congress, Dublin/virtually,

Deadline for abstract submission: 28 February (no extension!) for the 2nd midterm conference of EUPHA Health Workforce Research (HWR) section, Lisbon (hybrid), Portugal, 10-11 June 2021 in collaboration with the Institute of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in Lisbon, the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, WHO Regional Office for Europe, ASPHER, and EUPHA. Reduced fees for PhD students and LMIC available. Further information and abstract submission;

Health workforce research has never been more important. The COVID-19 crisis reminds us that human resources for health are the backbone and the 'heart and soul' of every healthcare system. The pandemic revealed both the system weaknesses and the opportunities for innovation. The EUPHA-HWR second midterm Conference provides a unique forum for exchanging knowledge and expertise on how to create a better prepared and protected health workforce and more resilient healthcare systems.

The EUPHA-HWR midterm Conference also contributes to the WHO International Year of Health and Care Workers (YHCW) in 2021 in recognition of their dedication to providing care during and despite the COVID-19 pandemic that has challenged health systems worldwide.

Do not miss to submit your abstract and join the EUPHA-HWR midterm conference!
