Submitting your abstract

Are you an early career pharmacist or healthcare researcher? Then why not join us at the RPS Annual Conference to showcase your medicines safety research with a poster presentation?

We welcome submissions on any of the following sub-themes:

  • Reducing medicines harm
  • Leading in medicines safety
  • Performing under pressure
  • Social prescribing
  • Medicines use and personalised care
  • Behavioural health and substance misuse
  • Medicines management: supply and regulation
  • Technology: opportunity or threat?

Early career researchers (undergraduate or postgraduate students, or those up to five years post-PhD), this is the opportunity for you!   

If you fall outside of this bracket, however, don’t panic! You can submit your research to the RPS Research Summit in June 2020. Email [email protected] to find out more.

Remember that successful submissions will be printed in our conference proceedings booklet, giving you the flexibility to submit your abstract for other events and publications.
