IAPAE welcomes the submission of Abstracts for the following categories of Presentations to occur during the 3-day IAPAE conference:

  • Oral Scientific Paper Presentation
  • Poster Scientific Presentation
  • Pecha Kucha Presentation
  • Palaver “stories under the tree” (also called Camp Fire Presentations) and
  • Workshops

Abstract Presentations submitted for one of these five categories should align with the Conference Theme: “Can global physician associate (PA) and PA comparable education adapt to the changing world? Responding with Collaboration, Innovation and Mutual Respect” and fall under one of the five Tracks, including:

  1. Global PA education changing to global needs
  2. Artificial Intelligence and digital literacy in PA education
  3. International ethical competencies for PA educators and students
  4. Crossing international borders for PA education and clinical practice
  5. Developing international curricula and accreditation standard

Ideally the Abstract has links to PA and PA Analogue health science education and clinical practice.

Structure of the five Presentations during the conference:

  • Oral Scientific Paper Presentations will be a 12 minute presentation by the author followed by 3 minutes for questions for a scientific research study
  • Poster Scientific Presentation will be the authors standing by their scientific research poster for delegates to walk around, view and ask questions for 15 minutes, followed by a facilitated group discussion of the posters with the authors and delegates for 10 minutes related to a Conference Track. Posters will also be open for viewing throughout the conference.
  • Pecha Kucha Presentation is a 6 minute 40 second presentation by the author with 20 power point slides, each slide set to display for 20 seconds, automatically moving to the next slide without text, including only images or photos to tell the story along with the narration. The presentation is followed by 6 minutes for questions and discussion. The Pecha Kucha is meant to provoke thought, imagination, humour or insight and can be any topic related to the Conference Theme and/or Tracks. More info at Pecha Kucha website.
  • Palaver “stories under the tree” (also called Camp Fire Presentations) is a 15 minute presentation by the author followed by 5 minutes of questions and short discussion. The presentation can be any situation, experience, idea, activity or story by the author related to the Conference Theme and/or Tracks. This can single or multiple presenters.
  • Parallel Workshops are 1 hour 30 minutes long providing hands-on experience for delegates to learn from the workshop facilitator(s) on any relevant practical educational activity.

The Abstract submission for the presentations should follow the Conference Theme and/or Tracks and be relevant for global PA and PA Analogue education.
