Best Practice / Service Development Abstracts

The PCRS Respiratory Conference is an opportunity to showcase your work, share your experiences and discuss the outcomes

Submission Deadline: 30th June 2023

Share your work
Whether you have implemented guidelines in your practice or locality, done the basics well, or have introduced an innovative approach to delivering respiratory care in a primary or community care setting, the PCRS Respiratory Conference is an opportunity to showcase your work, share your experiences and discuss the outcomes. Other healthcare professionals will undoubtedly be able to learn from your experiences and benefit from seeing what you have done to help them improve the care, outcomes and experience of their patients with respiratory disease – so don’t hold back, make sure you submit an abstract. If you want to discuss whether your work is suitable for sharing or you don’t feel confident to write an abstract contact and we will put you in touch with someone who can help you.

Abstract submissions
Abstracts are invited on any projects in primary or community care, such as a new service or new way of working or results of audits, which have the potential to improve outcomes for our patients in primary and community care. We are particularly keen to hear from those who have developed innovative programmes and new ways of work as a result of COVID-19 that you feel are important areas of development for future practice.

All abstracts will be subject to peer review. Authors of all abstracts accepted for the conference will be invited to prepare a poster (PDF) for display throughout the conference in the virtual poster lounge and conference app and also invited to submit a 4-5 minute video to accompany the work.

Corresponding authors will be notified by 22nd July if their abstract has been accepted and will be offered one discounted registration, provided they register by 4th September.

Publication of abstracts
All abstracts accepted for the conference will be published on the PCRS website and all abstracts that have not been published elsewhere will be published in the PCRS membership publication Primary Care Respiratory Update.

Abstract awards
