Share your work at the 20th EFORT Congress in Lisbon

EFORT

Abstract submission for the 20th EFORT Congress in Lisbon, Portugal opens Monday, 10 September 2018. As is the case every year, EFORT expects many members of the orthopaedic and trauma community to access the online platform and submit studies in all categories.

Abstract submission for the 2019 Congress is the best chance to get your work integrated into the scientific program and actively join the European orthopaedic and trauma (O&T) community. EFORT aims to provide worthy scientific guidance to congress attendees via the presentation of well-established medical techniques and by highlighting new evidence for emerging procedures. Well-recognized experts will broadly discuss their preferred approaches to several conditions, the rationale for their decisions, their successes and failures, and their tips and tricks. During the congress, important international sources of knowledge and experience in the prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system are accessible of every participant.

Benefits of attendance

As an attendee, you will access critical information and data related to your specialty and gather useful recommendations to enhance your daily medical practice. Another asset when you are part of such a prominent international meeting is the shared experience. Getting to discuss onsite with a colleague who faces a patient with a medical condition similar to one of your own cases may allow you to consider a different diagnosis or treatment in a particular setting. Presenting your own successful results can significantly influence the methods and practices of other orthopaedic surgeons and health care professionals from across the globe.

Talk about your observations and share new clinical considerations that others can implement for a given diagnosis. Expand your professional network by connecting with colleagues and professional practitioners who will help you to modify research concepts and guide you to develop and publish your findings in respected publications. Benefit from the opportunity the congress provides to gain recognition from your peers.

Harmonization of clinical guidelines and standards throughout Europe has been one of the main objectives of EFORT in the past years. The extensive exchange between experts from different countries that occurs at the EFORT Annual Congress can contribute to the development of systematic reviews of clinical evidence — the main source for evidence-based care. Evaluating differing medical practices within Europe, analyzing divergent opinions and identifying common recommendations can efficiently help you better outline your treatment plan.

EFORT is the biggest European platform to share O&T knowledge and emerging scientific data. The EFORT scientific sessions are training programs with high scientific value. All authors invited to contribute to the scientific content of the congress by presenting their work orally adhere to the same standards and their contributions are vital to the success of the meeting. To be part of the program at the Lisbon congress as a specialist who seeks to foster and restore the mobility, musculoskeletal health and quality of life for the European population, send us your innovative, previously unpublished wok.

Abstract submission

The abstract should convey information that the EFORT reviewers can use to identify good quality research. Abstracts should be in English and must fit within stated parameters for length and layout. The abstract submission system is self-explanatory and online edits are easy to perform any time before the closure deadline. Please consult the complete guidelines for abstract submission and submit abstracts before Monday, 12 November 2018, 23:59 CET. No extensions will be possible.

Information within the abstract must be an honest representation of the work completed and not include estimates or projections based on data available at the time of submission. Diagrams, tables and pictures are not accepted as part of the abstract content. Nurses, physiotherapists and members of the other allied professions are invited to submit their work under the main abstract categories by using the EFORT topic tree available during submission.

All abstracts will be scored against objective criteria, according to scientific and clinical accuracy. The score also depends on the medical relevance, originality and benefit of the work. Several independent reviewers from the relevant subspecialty area will blindly assess each abstract.
