Hospice UK’s national conference is the flagship event for the hospice and palliative care community. We bring together people from a range of disciplines and settings, within and beyond hospices, to share learning and to facilitate debate.

If you would like to display a poster at conference or give a short talk about any aspect of your work, you should submit an abstract. Before you do so, take a look at the Frequently Asked Questions which tell you more about why and how to submit an abstract, and the timeline.

We’d like to hear about work which will be completed this year or about work in progress and which proves, describes or aspires to influence care and reflects the conference title ‘Leading, Learning and Innovating'.
