Entry criteria: this competition is open to BSPD members and seeks entries from non-consultant grade (or equivalent) clinicians. Projects submitted under this category must demonstrate the key aspects of an area of clinical governance – this includes clinical audit, patient safety and patient experience. If you are not already a member of the Society, you can join at the same time as submiiting your abstract.
Entry details: An abstract should be submitted electronically to the BSPD Conference Abstract and Prize Committee (CAPC) by 31 March of the year in which the paper is to be presented. Abstracts should adhere to the format required for conference abstracts as described in the submission process.
Judging process: Abstracts will initially be appraised by the CAPC and up to six entries, which best meet the entry criteria and standards, will be invited to present their work at the annual scientific meeting (see appendix E for mark sheet). Participants will give a 10 minute oral presentation which will be followed by five minutes of questions. Presenters will be assessed by three members of the CAPC according to standard criteria. The winner will be announced at the conference dinner. Applicants who are not selected for this prize will be invited to present their paper as a poster (non prize category) at the conference.
