Poster competition

You are invited to submit a poster for presentation at Anaesthesia 2022.

This year we are expanding the poster competition and inviting submissions on sustainability projects as well as the two PQIP categories. If you have worked on a project which falls into any of these categories, please submit a poster for a chance to showcase your work and to win a £250 prize.

 

Categories

1) A quality improvement or research project using PQIP data and/or that addresses one of PQIP’s top five priorities from the previous and current cohorts. (2019/20 and 2021/22):

  • Individualised risk assessment
  • DrEaMing
  • Communication and multidisciplinary working
  • Individualised pain Management
  • Diabetes Management

 

2) A project which focuses on changing perioperative care services or pathways to support elective recovery

We are particularly keen to see entries which are able to describe an evaluation of a new or adapted pathway or service, in addition to describing what the innovation is. Evaluations could be qualitative (feedback from staff or patients for example), quantitative (numerical data on processes or outcomes) or both.

 

3) Sustainability project

At a time when the importance of finding sustainable solutions and reducing carbon has never been higher, we are inviting submissions on projects in your Hospital/Department on innovative ways to support the speciality in promoting sustainability.

 

Eligibility

The competition is open to all healthcare professionals or student healthcare professionals.
