The 7th Australasian Mental Health Outcomes and Information Conference

Call for abstracts

Abstract stream criteria

“Joining the dots” acknowledges the significant evolution of the mental health and addictions information and outcomes journey over the past 14 years, while recognising the need for bold and fresh thinking on the complex systematic challenges our sector continues to experience. 

AMHOIC 2019 is an opportunity for our sector to continue to role model unity and lead the progression of critical conversations on the use of information to drive forward improvements to achieve better wellbeing outcomes. 

It is a space to create new connections, share learnings and talk about how we break down enduring barriers to using and sharing information to make a positive difference in mental health and addiction recovery journeys. 

We invite you to submit your abstract. Abstract submissions need to take account of potential life span issues, mental health, addictions and cultural diversity where appropriate.

AMHOIC 2019 Conference streams:

  • Information for prevention – Collecting and using information to deliver interventions and initiatives that allow us to reach people early and prevent crisis.
  • Putting people at the centre – Making sense of people’s information in their context to tailor support and improve outcomes. 
  • Working together to improve wellbeing – Breaking down barriers to sharing information with the right people, at the right time to improve the wellbeing of people who experience mental health and/or addiction challenges.
  • System and delivery change – Using information to identify and drive changes in how we deliver services that meet the needs of all people. 

Abstract submissions can be for either a 30 minute paper (20 minute presentation plus 10 minutes for questions), or a symposium (equivalent of two papers).

Please note that abstracts should be no longer than 250 words. 

Abstract submissions close on Friday, 31 May 2019.

All abstracts will be reviewed by the conference programme committee. People who have submitted abstracts will be informed of the outcome of the review in June.
