The EULAR Health Professionals aim to focus on high quality research, clinical practice and the development of HPs to improve outcomes for people with RMDs and improve the quality of care they receive. The committee of HPs is also actively involved in liaising with HPs across Europe to support the development of roles and encourage good clinical networking.
If you are interested in contributing, you are welcome to submit an abstract.
The electronic abstract submission system will be open from 1 October 2016 until 31 January 2017. Abstracts received after the deadline will not be accepted.
Health professionals can choose to submit their abstracts either for practice and clinical care (HPR topics A1-A5) or for clinical research work (topics 11-34). Please note that when submitting to topics 11-34, your work will be scored by rheumatologists, whereas the HPR topics A1-A5 are scored by health professionals.
From 2012 onward, EULAR grants three awards for submitted abstracts by health professionals as first authors.
In addition, EULAR awards a number of travel bursaries to the first/presenting author of a health professionals abstract that has been accepted for oral or poster presentation. Please apply for a travel bursary as soon as you have submitted your abstract but note that this is a separate process and requires a separate application!
