The argumentation presented in both types of submissions must be clearly written, coherently developed and backed with concrete experiences and/or data. Please ensure that issues addressed are relevant to the congress topics (see below), reflect current challenges, show originality and will spark the interest of congress participants.

Abstract written according to the traditional scientific format should be preferably organised as follows: Introduction, Patients and Methods, Results, Discussion. However, such headings should not be indicated in the text. A short interpretation of the data is required. Conclusions such as: “Results will be discussed” will not be accepted.
Essay summaries can be freely organised.

Hello! If you are a young healthcare professional or a medical or biomedical student, you may probably be asking yourself these same questions as we do while we work in the health field: How can I prevent scientific and technical development from prevailing over the human meaning of health care professionalism?·How can I face extreme situations such as severe disabilities, end of life or loss of consciousness?· How can I confront the dilemma between patient’s choices and the ethical duty of each healthcare professional?·How can I give my best without running the risk of burnout?·How can I manage conflicts of interest, always hidden behind our work?
