Core tenets:

  • Priority will be given to presenters who have lived experience of complex health and social needs, and presenters from underrepresented and/or marginalized communities.
  • Presenters are encouraged to ground their content in relevant complex care frameworks, including the Blueprint for Complex Care, the complex care ecosystem, and the complex care core competencies.
  • Presentations should recognize the complexity of systems and institutions, including the impact of structural racism.
  • Recognizing the diversity of the audience, presentations should be appropriate for attendees from different sectors, disciplines, and professions.

Beehive submission guidelines

The Beehive is the innovation and semi-structured networking space at the conference. The goal is to share emerging knowledge, experience, strategy, and challenges with and among attendees, and secure new allies and potential collaborators. Watch this video to learn more.

Beehive presentations should aim to raise relevant issues, showcase research and innovation related to complex care, and facilitate exchange and conversation with a diverse audience of practitioners and people with lived experience from across the country.

Presentation topics may span:

  • care delivery,
  • data and evaluation,
  • policy and advocacy,
  • program design and operations,
  • leadership and collaboration,
  • and/or community engagement and consumer partnership.

Beehive presentations should be 1:1 or conducive to small group conversations, and can highlight:

  • research,
  • evaluation findings,
  • best practices,
  • tools and resources, and
  • other discussion prompts

There are two ways to participate in the Beehive:

  • Poster presentations: Posters are physical displays highlighting patient cases, programs, research, and case studies of interest to conference attendees. Posters should be educational in nature and not promote a particular product or service.
  • Tabletop presentations: Participants share an open-source resource, model, tool, technology, or program they have developed and/or implemented that other attendees can apply in their programs and organizations.
