Call for submissions for the BSPHN 2019 Conference

As a network the BSPHN is keen to provide ample opportunities at our annual conference for members and delegates to share their work, to learn from others, and to build relationships. Therefore this call for submissions is aimed at showcasing a wide range of experiences and learning from all areas of behavioural science and public health. Importantly, submissions do not have to relate to traditional research studies, although these are welcome. Submissions could describe any project that has sought to apply and/or evaluate the impact of behavioural science in a public health context. This year’s conference provides two different opportunities to formally present your work:

Poster Presentations

Accepted posters will be displayed throughout the conference. Authors will also give a brief overview of their poster to a small group during the structured poster session prior to the lunch break. We are particularly keen to receive submissions from practitioners, commissioners and other professionals, as well as students and academics. We are also keen to include work that is still in progress. Please submit an outline of the project, in no more than 250 words, using the following headings (as appropriate).

  • Aim(s)
  • Methods/Implementation
  • Results/Impact/Learning
  • Conclusions/Implications for practice

Outlines should be submitted by email to no later than 21st December 2018. Please include ‘Poster submission’ in the email subject line.

Case Studies

A maximum of three case studies will be accepted for oral presentation (approx. 10mins) during a session on ‘Best practice partnerships in action’. The aim of these case studies is to provide exemplars of the integration of behavioural science and public health, which will generate discussion and questions from delegates during the proceeding structured discussion. Authors of accepted case studies will be expected to participate in the discussion as panel members. Importantly, the case studies do not necessarily have to demonstrate positive examples, as much learning can be derived from research and practice that does not produce the intended results. If you feel you have a case study which could be of significant interest to the audience and provide a useful kick off for discussion, please submit an outline of no more than 350 words, explaining how you have applied behavioural science in a public health context, the aims and impact of the project/service, and the key learning and/or recommendations for future practice gained from the project.

Outlines should be submitted by email to no later than 21st December 2018. Please include ‘Case study submission’ in the email subject line.
