Our abstract competitions form a key part of the RCR Annual Conference, with shortlisted applicants invited to present an ePoster or oral presentation. In 2022, we welcomed submissions for the following competitions:
- Clinical Radiology George and Vera Ansell Abstract Competition
- Clinical Radiology Audit ePoster Competition
- Clinical Radiology Quality Improvement ePoster Competition
- Clinical Oncology Wormald Abstract Competition
- Clinical Oncology Audit and Quality Improvement ePoster Competition
In the lead up to and during the conference, top submissions will be displayed as ePosters on our online conference platform by specialty, covering a wide range of scientific and quality improvement projects, giving attendees the opportunity to learn from others, takeaway innovative ideas and see what approaches other organisations are demonstrating to improve patient care.
Details about how to view these ePosters will be added to this page from late September. In-person delegates will also be able to view the ePosters on large screens at the conference venue (the Eastside Rooms, Birmingham) on 13-14 October.
In addition to our ePosters, oral presentations will be delivered by up to five entrants of the Clinical Radiology George and Vera Ansell Abstract Competition on Thursday 13 October, 13:00-14:00, and by up to five entrants of the Clinical Oncology Wormald Abstract Competition on Friday 14 October, 12:30-13:30. Held in Ashstead rooms 1 and 2 at the Eastside Rooms, Birmingham as part of the Trainee stream, these presentations will also be streamed online:
