Submit your abstracts for the National Conference

Submit your abstractsHospice UK’s conference is our flagship event, bringing together everyone involved in leading hospice, palliative and end of life care for adults, children and young people.

Our two-day conference provides a unique forum to discuss the current and forthcoming issues facing our community and to discover new thinking from outside of our sector. The conference is packed with stimulating plenary and parallel sessions, and opportunities to network with peers and meet major providers of services and products. It combines high level strategic thinking, application into practice and lessons from real world examples.

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 transform palliative care.


  • The deadline for submitting an abstract is 5pm on Monday 18 June 2018.
  • During the week of 30 July, we’ll let you know whether your abstract has been accepted.
