We are thrilled to extend you a warm invitation for the 2024 Successes and Failures in Telehealth (SFT-24) conference, hosted by The University of Queensland’s Centre for Online Health (UQ-COH).

Taking place from 13 – 15th November, 2024 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, SFT-24 promises to be a premier event in Australia's healthcare landscape, fostering collaboration and innovation in the dynamic field of telehealth and virtual healthcare.

Since its inception in 2001, the SFT conferences have been at the forefront of showcasing the transformative potential of telehealth and virtual care. With a long history of bringing together stakeholders – including clinicians, researchers, policymakers, educators, industry leaders, and consumers – SFT-24 provides an unparalleled platform for knowledge exchange and networking.

The call for abstracts is now open, and we encourage you to submit your work for presentation at SFT-24.  We invite abstracts which represent original research (formal evaluation of telehealth and virtual care); and/or clinical case reports (describing your telehealth service and experience from a service provider perspective). SFT-24 abstracts are due before Monday 27 May 2024 and SFT-24 abstract submission guidelines are now available here.
