Reports of completed studies are preferred, and will be given preference in selecting oral presentations, especially over abstracts which do not report results but indicate that they will be reported at the meeting or descriptions of trial methodology. Results of research will be given preference over descriptions of services for presentations.

Abstracts reporting quantitative studies should contain the planned accrual target and the actual number of patients recruited, levels of significance and confidence intervals of results. Abstracts of qualitative research should indicate how they chose their sample size (e.g. data saturation) and the methodology of analysis.

When you submit:

  • Save the file as a Microsoft Word document (PDF files not accepted)
  • Use the filename “Lastname_Initials”, e.g. Smith_AB

Upload the file according to the instructions on the website

Maximum text length allowed is 300 words in length including sub-headings. To assist your preparation, abstracts may be structured under the sub-headings Aims, Methods, Results, Conclusions. The sub-headings must be concise, with only the first word starting with a capital letter.
