Submit an Abstract

FSRH Virtual 2022: Embracing a holistic future in SRH will include a digital poster/oral competition with individual prizes up to £150. Being selected to showcase work through a short oral or poster presentation is a great opportunity to share research, case reports or best practice case studies with a wide audience of professionals and academics.

The aim of the competition is to showcase SRH cases and research, highlight SRH as a speciality and add a research element to the FSRH conference.

Doctors, academics, SAS doctors, trainees, nurses, midwives and other healthcare professionals and students can submit 250 word abstracts in the following categories.

  • Research
  • Quality improvement
  • Case report

Successful applicants will be invited to either submit a digital poster that will be available to view on the FSRH Virtual platform, or to pre-record an oral presentation. If selected, presenters will need to buy their FSRH Virtual ticket at their own cost, unless awarded a bursary ticket. Please indicate on your bursary application if you have or are intending to submit an abstract. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the conference. Please click here for the abstract guidelines and submit yours by 26 September 2022
