Tips to improve the success of your abstract

Conference Banner

Tips to improve the success of your scientific research abstract:

  • Include a hypothesis
  • Include data and check it is accurate
  • Check it is relevant to a primary care audience
  • Check it is relevant to the conference theme
  • If it is a service development consider if it should be submitted using the Implementation Science/Service Development form
  • Check it is within the allowed word count (300 words)

Tips to improve the success of your best practice/service improvement abstract:

  • State the problem the change is trying to address
  • Specify who: who has made/is making the change, and/or who benefits
  • Include measures: more measures, less text is a good way to think
  • Provide evidence of the change (remember we can learn from changes that are not improvements)
  • Consider how it is relevant for a wider international PCRS audience
  • Include a final message: so what have you learned that you want to share?
  • Avoid presenting a literature review, we want an analysis of a real service change
  • If it is about clinical medicine it might be more suitable for the Clinical Research Results category
  • In the limited time and space focus on the change not the background
  • Check it is within the allowed word count (300 words)
