    * Word limit for the abstract (Background to and including Conclusion) is 300 words.  The word count does not include abstract title, category, author names or affiliations.
    * Format: all abstracts (oral and poster) should follow the format below: 
    ·       * Title.  If your poster represents work in progress, please add “WIP” to the title.
    ·       * Category: please state one category, selected from the list of categories above.

As space is limited, the selection of abstracts is competitive, but the SSAHPF conference committee will score abstracts anonymously and independently, and aim to ensure that the programme reflects both the conference theme and the wide-ranging interests of the Forum.

Abstract submission deadline: 12 midnight, 15th April 2019. 

Submitting your abstract: Please email your abstract to: emmacoutts@nhs.net  stating “SSAHPF abstract” in the title of your email.

We look forward to receiving your abstract!
