Details of how to prepare and submit abstracts
The submission categories are as follows;
1. Research abstracts (£1000 of additional study budget)
2. Audit abstracts (£500 of additional study budget)
3. Quality improvement abstracts (£250 of additional study budget)
Please submit your abstracts in TWO formats with one including all details, and the second omitting authorship and institution information (to allow for anonymised marking).
1. Title of project.
2. Authors with presenting author underlined and responsible author highlighted in bold.
3. Details of the department from where the work originated.
4. Structured within 250 words or less (see below).
Research abstracts. Abstracts should take this format: ‘Introduction and aim, methods, results, conclusion and interpretation.' Please also submit evidence of research ethics approval or justification for absence (from the ethics committee). Abstracts submitted without this evidence will be rejected.
Audit abstracts. Abstracts should take this format: Audit standard and aim, methods, results, conclusion and clinical relevance’. Please also submit evidence of audit registration in the appropriate NHS Trust. Abstracts submitted without this evidence will be rejected.
Quality or service improvement abstracts. Abstracts should take this format: ‘Context, problem, assessment of problem and analysis of causes, intervention, strategy for change, measures for improvement, effects of change and lessons learnt.’ Quality improvement projects do not compare practice to current standards (audit), and do not involve interventions or measuring outcomes that are not routine practice (research). Quality improvement is about reliably applying evidence based medicine to routine clinical care. This should be achieved by applying quality improvement methodology i.e. small cycle tests of change (PDSA cycles) aiming for 95% reliability which ultimately bring about an improvement in patient safety or quality of clinical care.
The deadline for abstract submission is the 18th of July, 2014.
Abstracts should be submitted to Mr Sean Strong at Sean.Strong@bristol.ac.uk (please contact directly if further details are required.)
Trainees successfully submitting an abstract AND who attend the whole day will receive a complementary ticket to the annual dinner at Bordeaux Quay in Bristol on the 26th of September, 2014. Prize winners will be announced at the dinner.
