The Health Services Research Network Symposium, now in its sixth year, is the field’s premier knowledge event. It features presentations and discussion at the leading edge of UK and international health services research. Building on a very successful event in 2012, the Symposium will again bring together researchers, practitioners, senior managers and policy makers. You are invited to submit abstracts for presentation and/or poster display.

We are keen to receive abstracts on the following: 

  • Patient experience

  • Keeping people out of hospital
  • Self-care and self management

The Health Foundation invites abstracts on the theme of Improvement Science, that is new approaches to achieve measurable and timely improvement in care processes; development of the underlying theory and evaluation of methods to improve quality, safety and value; implementation of evidence-based healthcare.

The HSRN welcomes submissions relating to both quantitative and qualitative research and embraces work across all health care professions including nursing, pharmacy, medicine, management, physiotherapy, midwifery and all relevant disciplines including sociology, economics, epidemiology, health policy, statistics, psychology, history.

The scope of the Symposium covers all aspects of services including primary care, community care, social care, hospital care, health promotion and disease prevention, through curative services to long-term, rehabilitative and custodial care.
