Poster Parade 2022: call for abstracts

Following on from the success of last year's virtual Poster Parade, this year we are once again running a virtual poster display and competition this autumn.

Are you involved in an interesting project or in an area of work that you would like to promote and showcase? If so, why not present your work at our virtual poster exhibition? This is a great opportunity to share your learning and tell others about your work. The call for posters is now open.

If you are at all interested in presenting a poster, please contact Pauline Ellison for a proposal form for completion at:

Poster abstracts/ proposals will be reviewed rapidly as soon as we receive them and acceptances confirmed continuously up until the closing deadline, Friday 09 September 2022.

Exhibitors will be asked to create their virtual poster using a twitter-friendly template and submit this no later than Friday 23 September 2022. The template and guidelines for preparing your virtual poster will be attached to your poster abstract/ proposal acceptance email.

On Monday 10 October 2022, the poster section of the SPPC website will go live for colleagues to view all the posters and to cast their vote for the Derek Doyle Poster Prize. The Partnership will also curate a day of poster sharing via Twitter.

On Thursday 27 October 2022 from 3.00pm – 5.00pm a selection of exhibitors will be invited to give brief presentations of their work and to take part in a Q&A event via Zoom.

The winners of the Derek Doyle Poster Prize will also be announced at this event.

Last year's virtual poster exhibition can be viewed here: Poster Exhibition.

Derek Doyle Poster Prize

Each year the Derek Doyle Poster Prize is awarded to the poster that gets the most public votes. As many people will know Derek was a key figure in Scotland, the UK and globally in the development of palliative care – instrumental in establishing palliative medicine as a speciality, first chair of the Association for Palliative Medicine, first Vice-Chairman of the European Association for Palliative Care and a founding member of the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care.

Last year, the winners of the Derek Doyle Poster Prize were Michael Loynd, NHS Highland and Lorien Cameron-Ross, Highland Hospice, for their poster End of Life Care Together Highland

End of Life Care Together (EoLCT) is a partnership of organisations in Highland focusing on service transformation by delivering outcomes that matter to people and their family and carers in the last year of life. This novel collaboration led by Highland Hospice and with strategic focus from NHS Highland aims to optimise End of Life (EoL) care through a population value approach with equitable access to services.
