BSAVA appeals for clinical abstracts

The BSAVA is aiming to assemble a record number of clinical abstracts – particularly from GPs – to be presented at congress 2019.
Clinical abstracts can be on any veterinary subject – such as announcing the preliminary results of a new study, describing interesting cases or discussing new techniques – and you could share your research with more than 6,000 members of the profession at the four-day BSAVA Congress in Birmingham in April 2019.

Broad range

Some 122 abstracts were presented at congress 2018 across a broad range of topics and interests.
BSAVA Congress programme chairman Sue Murphy would like to see more clinical abstracts submitted by those working in general practice in particular.

Evolving programme

Dr Murphy said: ‘’Clinical abstracts are an integral part of an evolving programme of CPD, where researchers – alongside vets, vet nurses and practice staff – share the latest research, unusual case reports and novel procedures; they are a great opportunity to influence veterinary practice and presenting at BSAVA Congress means your research is open to a large and receptive audience, which enhances its impact.”

Submission deadline

The BSAVA has produced a step-by-step guide to presenting an abstract at congress 2019. Submissions are open until 24 October.
The BSAVA Congress 2019 programme has recently been announced, including keynote speaker, “black box thinker” and former Olympiad Matthew Syed.
