Exciting content is still being added to the Conference Programme, but you can see how it is developing by clicking here!
As part of the Conference programme, we would like to invite Healthcare Science students to attend Day 1 of the conference and take part in a student poster competition entitled “Best of British Science: Prudent Healthcare”. The competition will bring together and recognise the important contribution that students make to Healthcare Science in Wales, and will provide a unique platform for students to showcase their particular scientific interests and connect with wide range of leaders and innovators from across the profession.
Students wishing to enter the competition must submit an abstract (no more than 500 words), outlining;
(a) the reason for the study
(b) how they were going to answer the question
(c) what they found
(d) what it means, and
(e) how will it impact on patient care
Competition winners will be invited to give the audience a brief overview of their poster in the Young Scientist Poster Spot that is scheduled to take place at the end of day 1. Therefore, winning students will be notified and are expected to prepare 5 slides for this oral presentation if required covering points (a) to (e) above. Abstracts must be submitted by 14th November to firstname.lastname@example.org . Posters must be no larger than A1 in size and can be displayed in either portrait or landscape orientation. Judging will be focused on a number of areas, including the content, design, quality and clarity of the poster, and how the particular subject area has made/could potentially make an impact to Healthcare Science. Competition judges will be looking for innovative posters that are able to convey specialist scientific concepts and developments to a wide ranging audience in an accessible and engaging way.
