Bethune Round Table 2022

The UBC Branch for Global Surgical Care, in collaboration with the Canadian Network for International Surgery (CNIS), is honoured to host the 2022 Bethune Round Table.

The annual meeting will be taking place on June 16-19, 2022 .


This meeting will be FULLY VIRTUAL AND ONLINE.

Theme: Decolonizing Global Surgery

The Bethune Round Table (BRT) is an annual interdisciplinary meeting aimed at addressing the challenges of providing accessible, high-quality surgical care to marginalized patients in low-resource settings. By bringing health professionals across a variety of disciplines together, we are able to share strategies and create solutions for improving surgical care to these under-serviced regions.


Dear Global Surgery community,

We are excited to launch our 2022 BRT meeting, with the theme “Decolonizing Global Surgery”.

  • Background

Evaluation criteria:

All abstracts will be evaluated by our reviewers following those FOUR criteria (note: not all criteria will apply to all study types)

  1. Needs assessment: A proper needs assessment taking into considerations local needs and priorities was performed
  2. Outcomes measurement: Data on locally-relevant outcomes was collected and analyzed
  3. Fair authorship: Authors from both high-resource and low-resource settings are listed on the author list, their position in the author list representative of their involvement in the project
  4. Scientific merit: Must address an area of importance to the discipline; utilize established scientific principles; exhibit alignment within the study; demonstrate how scientific knowledge will be gained from the study; and involve appropriately trained researchers.

We look forward to your submissions!
