EWMA 2024: Abstract submission

We want to encourage high quality research and educational papers and support the many healthcare professionals who want to improve clinical practice and share implementation of innovation

Abstract submission for EWMA 2024 closes 6 December!

To present your research, case study or product evaluation as a poster or oral presentation, you need to submit an abstract to the EWMA organising committee by the given deadline, 6 December 2023. Your submission will be reviewed by a member of the executive committee and if successful, you will be notified by February 2024 and invited to attend the conference as an oral or poster presenter.

If you’re submitting for the first time, it may seem daunting, so the Society of Tissue Viability Trustees are here to help!

The Trustees ran a live workshop on 21 November “How to write an inspiring abstract, poster or free paper presentation – An interactive guide for Healthcare Professionals” which is now available ON DEMAND. They shared their experiences, discussed ideas and gave practical hints, tips and tools to help people have the confidence to give it a go.

The speakers on the webinar were:

And they have made a FANTASTIC offer for Society members!

They are happy to answer questions or review your abstract if you email hello@societyoftissueviability.org by 30 November.
