New for 2016

This year a number of posters have been selected as 'oral posters', that is, for a poster discussion session over lunchtime on 18 November 2016. This offers a great opportunity for their authors to engage in facilitated discussion with delegates about their work.

Poster prizes

Prizes will be awarded to one of the 'oral' posters selected for the discussion session, and for one of the displayed posters. The criteria for the poster prizes will be 'design', 'content' and 'innovation'.

Our thanks to BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care, an official journal of Hospice UK, for providing the prizes.
