Submitting an abstract

We invite you to submit your work and stimulate debate, share knowledge and enhance your portfolio.  This is your chance to present your research, audit, innovations, and clinical cases. Discuss your findings with other experts from around the world and develop your presentation skills, an essential competence for advancing your career

Successful authors will present their ePoster online via the event platform, enabling delegates to browse the digital posters and get in contact with you during the conference, and on demand for up to six months. The top 5-10 abstracts will be shortlisted and authors given the opportunity to present their work during a dedicated oral platform presentation. You can decide whether you want your abstract to be considered for an ePoster only, or for both ePoster and Oral Platform  (remember only a few will be selected for this) presentation. 


All members of the MDT - all professions, all grades, any type of student
