Abstract Submission and Selection

Abstract guidelines

  • Word limit – 300 words
  • Minimum sections to be included – background, methods, results, conclusions
  • Abstracts may be presented as either a poster or oral powerpoint presentation, i.e. the same abstract cannot be presented in both categories. You will be informed via email after the selection meeting which category you work has been chosen for (see below)

Authors of poster presentations are expected to attend on the day

Unlike many other conferences, the South Tees Regional QIP Conference has been designed to give all submitting doctors, regardless of category, the opportunity to present to a Consultant judging panel. This means that if your work is accepted for poster presentation you will be expected to physically attend on the day to present it during a formal poster walk-around, or arrange in advance for a co-author to do so.


  • Abstracts should be emailed in an attached word document to stees.qipconference@nhs.net
  • Please title your email “QIPC Submission (surname)” and in the main text give your full name, grade and hospital
  • Late submissions will not be accepted


  • Abstracts will be reviewed by a consultant led panel and you will be informed of the outcome via email by 5pm on Friday 13 March 2020
  • All work from the across the region will be considered blind regardless of training location
