Be a part of Cabrini Research Week 2019

Share your new ideas, results and outcomes of your research and quality improvement projects with your peers, visitors and the community.

Abstracts are invited from any area of health research or quality improvement programs involving Cabrini.

  • Projects do not need to be completed in order to present them, present an abstract and gain important feedback to guide your work.
  • Just starting out with a project? Present an abstract to gain feedback and ideas.
  • Presented your work recently? Submit an abstract so that we can hear about your work too.

No matter what stage you are at in your career – novice, early career or an experienced investigator, we want to hear from you.

Make sure you submit your abstract by COB Friday 19th July 2019!

** Please note, Research Week will run at Cabrini Malvern from Monday 7 October to Friday 11 October.

If you are not available as the presenting author on the day allocated to your presentation, you can nominate someone else to present on your behalf.
