NELA sponsored trainee poster prize

NELA will be sponsoring a trainee poster prize at WSM 2021. This is for the best abstract and poster that uses your hospital’s NELA data to bring about an improvement in care.

Submitters will be informed of the outcome of their submission in late-September 2020.

The criteria for a successful abstract and poster will be judged on:

  • Whether it demonstrates use of local NELA data
  • Whether it uses established QI methodology
  • Has multidisciplinary involvement (ideally)
  • Whether it demonstrates an improvement in care, which could be improvements in process or outcome
  • The extent to which public and patients are involved in design and delivery of improvements to care for their project

All accepted abstracts in the above categories will be published in Anaesthesia in the form of a fully referenceable online supplement (NB Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to refuse publication, e.g. where there are major concerns over ethics and/or content).

For more information on submitting abstracts please refer to the abstract submission guidelines and Frequently Asked Questions.

Assessors of submitted abstracts are blinded to the authors and required to highlight any competing interests during assessment. Association Board/Education Committee members and Faculty are excluded from assessing/judging any abstracts, and from chairing/judging sessions that include any abstracts, of which they are a co-author.
