Findings - Describe outcomes, data, and statistical tests if appropriate. For example, for randomised controlled trials, the actual numbers and percentages for the primary outcome/s, and estimated effect size (e.g., odds ratio) and its precision (eg, 95% CI).

Discussion and conclusion


Symposia are designed to capture a coherent set of three to four individual presentations that center on one theme within health psychology. The speakers address in depth an issue or a question of particular relevance. Symposia typically place individual experiences or research results in a broader context and allow time for interaction between the presenters and discussion amongst the group.

Round tables

Round table sessions can be used for a more interactive sessions-involving the audience. For example, for setting up a research network for an innovative methodology, or to determine a research agenda on a specific topic.

Oral presentation:

Oral presentation abstracts may describe research projects on any subject within health psychology. Oral presentations will be organized in thematic sessions.

Poster presentation:

Poster presentation abstracts may describe research projects on any subject within health psychology. Poster presentations will be organized in two poster sessions.

Technology & E-health demonstration:

Specific sessions will be organized for innovative presentations using advanced technology to highlight some aspect of research work in health psychology. Authors are invited to present their content using technology to highlight a technology-based intervention, app or website.
