EAPC 2019 – Palliative Slam
No official event of the EAPC congress
Could you inspire and educate a live audience about your work in Palliative Care – in just three minutes?
In order to find the most talented Palliative Care science communicators, participants will have three minutes to convince the audience with an exiting and engaging talk that can be understood by general public, using only the props you can carry on stage with you. Each presentation will be judged according to Content, Clarity and Charisma.
Send us your application and a short abstract (max 150 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org until 17th May 2019 and be part of the „Arts in Palliative Care“ Event on May 23rd.
The content of the presentations must be scientifically accurate. If the topic chosen has controversy or uncertainty around it, then the presentation must acknowledge the opposing views. The scientific topic presented should be well chosen to suit the audience.
Clarity is critical for effective science communication. The structure of the presentation must enable the audience and judges to easily follow the talk and they should be left with a full understanding of the scientific concept chosen.
The audience and judges should be left inspired and enthused about science. The winner will be a charismatic presenter who makes the science easy to listen to, entertaining, exciting and who is not only able to communicate the science but who can share their passion for it.
