Abstracts will be accepted until January 20, 2020 for the Canadian Healthcare Navigation Conference on April 30-May 1, 2020 in Toronto, ON.

Applicants will be notified by February 7th, 2020.


The abstract should be no more than 300 words in length. Abstracts should be written using lay language (with no jargon).

There are no limitations on the number of abstracts an author can submit; however you can only be a lead author (presenter) for two selected abstracts.

We encourage clinicians, students/trainees, researchers, and other collaborators such as individuals with lived experience to submit an abstract to present their research related to health navigation, to share insights on navigating the system, or lessons learned from delivering a navigation program at the first-ever Canadian Healthcare Navigation Conference!

To facilitate peer review, please include the following information:

  • Introduction/background
  • Design (research methods, or specific details of proposed presentation)
  • Results (may include preliminary findings or lessons learned if no final results are available)
  • Conclusion (may include implications for the field of healthcare navigation related to research, practice, education, or policy/administration)
