Submit  your Abstract Abstract

What is an  Abstract Abstract?

Literally it’s an abstract abstract. I know, esoteric. But maybe a good opportunity for you  to be expressive, creative and say something meaningful to the GPDU18 audience about peer support, advocacy or learning. And you.

  1. Start with your idea about one of the conference themes – peer support, learning or advocacy, or about how creativity helps you in medicine or helps you sustain yourself
  2. Let rip with some form of creative expression on that idea, which in its normal life may have been a boring old abstract in a paper. That expression can be anything – art, photography, apparently even interpretive dance (can’t wait).
  3. For us aesthetically challenged ones accompany your abstract abstract with a translation of some sort in 200 words or less.

Join 100s of others (10s maybe?) and submit your Abstract Abstract HERE
