The Allied Health Professionals, Health Care Scientists & Nurses Research Committee is hosting its 11th Annual Research Showcase. Researchers from non-medical professions are invited to submit an abstract for the adjudicated poster session. This event is a great opportunity to network with both novice and experienced researchers, and to discover some of the many ways in which you can get involved in research across the Trust.


Selection criteria


Submitted abstracts will go through a blind peer-review process carried out by internal reviewers. The following criteria will be used to assess each abstract:

  1. Does the research address a significant or important issue?
  2. Do the methods/approach enable the question to be answered rigorously?
  3. Have the data/findings been interpreted appropriately?
  4. Are the contents of the abstract clear and intelligible?

 

Please submit your abstract to research.grants@rbht.nhs.uk by midnight on Sunday 17 September 2017 to be eligible for consideration. In the subject line please state ‘Research Poster Abstract 2017 [your surname and first initial]’. 


General information


  1. The presenting author does not have to be the first author, but should have made a significant contribution to the study.
  2. Only one author may present the abstract. If no author is available on 30 October 2017 the abstract will be withdrawn. Any changes to the presenting author will need to be notified to research.grants@rbht.nhs.uk.
  3. All proposals and presentations must adhere to the use of “people-first” language. A person must not be referred to by disability or condition, and terms that could be considered biasing or discriminatory in any way should be removed (e.g. “person with a stroke” instead of “stroke patients”). See: www.disabilityisnatural.com/explore/people-first-language for more information and examples.
  4. All presentations including research on humans or animals should ensure that reference is made to the methods/approaches for ensuring that the research was carried out ethically (ie ethics committee approval, subject consent). Where ethics committee approval was not required the reviewing Committee expects the research to have been conducted in accordance with ethical     principles.
  5. Successful applicants will be notified by 30 September.
