Abstracts will be shared securely with a judging panel for the purpose of review. Successful abstracts will be kept on file until after the conference has taken place. 

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 5pm 30th September 2022  

Individuals may submit any number of abstracts as first author and/or appear on any number of abstracts as a co-author. You should only submit an abstract if the first author is able to and intends to attend the event to present the poster. Presentations must clearly relate to the abstract as submitted and the research described (where appropriate). Once an abstract has been accepted, if circumstances arise that prevent the first author from presenting you must inform us.

  • the abstract is written so as to be understandable to delegates who may not have a research background; 
  • the significance of the poster outcome is clearly stated in the abstract; 
  • the methods appear to be adequate 
  • the results of the study are described in adequate detail and the conclusions in the abstract appear to be justified by the results presented.

  • the abstract highlights new information, or a unique treatment or management process, clinical governance structure or service delivery model; 

On submission of the abstract, the first named author must ensure that he/she has the approval and a copyright assignment from any other authors and contributors involved in the work.

Judges appointed will assess and judge scientific abstracts for poster presentations. To avoid any conflict of interest, a “blind” review process will be used. The decision is final.
