Call for papers
The call for papers for our 2016 conference has now closed. Thank you to everyone who has submitted an abstract for consideration.
Hospice UK’s annual national conference is a key feature of the hospice and palliative care calendar. We bring together people from a wide range of disciplines and settings, within and beyond hospices, to share learning and facilitate debate.
Timetable for next steps
We’ve had a fantastic response to the call for papers and the review panel will be hard at work in the coming weeks. We will be in touch with lead authors in early August to advise on the outcome of the selection process. Those invited to present will be asked to confirm acceptance by 5 September. The accepted abstracts will be published by BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care, an official journal of Hospice UK.
Our Frequently Asked Questions page explains how abstracts will be reviewed and scored and expectations for authors’ attendance at conference.
New for 2016
This year we are introducing a new oral poster presentation opportunity. This new feature sees a number of posters selected as the topic of a poster discussion session at conference on 16 November at a pre-arranged time. This offers a great opportunity for those authors to engage in facilitated discussion with delegates about their work.
Prizes will be awarded to one of the posters selected for the discussion sessions, and for one of the displayed posters. The criteria for the poster prizes will be 'design', 'content' and 'innovation'.
