Exhibition Centre Station is the SEC’s own dedicated railway station allowing easy access from the city centre and the suburbs. Six trains an hour (around every 10 minutes) from Glasgow Central Station (Platform 17 on the lower level) will bring you to Exhibition Centre Station.

Call for abstracts

Submission deadline is  11am - 19 June 2017

In support of the BOPA Research Strategy the 2017 conference will have a greater focus on the practice-based research of its members. To achieve this, members will be chosen to present their work at an extended plenary session during the conference with the best overall oral poster presentation (voted by all attendees) receiving a prize worth up to £2,000 to attend an international conference. Delegates are invited to present results of their clinical and technical work as a poster with some selected as an oral presentation.

The author/s should submit to Succinct Communications by 11am on Monday 19 June 2017, an abstract of the work to be presented. Abstracts will be reviewed and marked by the BOPA Audit and Research Sub-Committee, and chosen authors wil be invited to display their poster for the duration of the conference, with the posters achieving the highest marks selected for oral presentation.

New for 2017:

All successful abstracts will be published in a supplement to the Journal of Oncology Pharmacy Practice (JOPP), providing authors with a citation in a peer reviewed journal.
