PCDS National Conference 2024: Request for poster abstracts

Poster abstract submissions are invited for the 20th National Conference of the PCDS, which will be held on 6 and 7 November.

Posters should provide examples of good practice or innovation in diabetes care within the primary care setting, highlighting work that is of relevance and, ideally, practical significance to other primary care teams. Accepted posters will be displayed in the exhibition hall during the conference and will be judged by the PCDS Committee. An award will be presented for the entry that reflects the best contribution to diabetes care within the primary care setting.

Entries are also open for the Roger Gadsby Award recognising an outstanding audit in diabetes primary care, with a cash prize of £500 for the winner. See below for more information about the entry requirements for the award.

For your chance to win the £500 prize, enter a poster describing your diabetes primary care audit.

An audit is a proven method of quality improvement, giving practices a systemic way to look at what they should be doing, what they are doing and how to make improvements to benefit patient care. When deciding what to audit, there are a few things to consider:

  • The diabetes-related condition being audited should affect large numbers of people.
  • There should be an evidence base for the condition and the interventions being audited.
  • At baseline there should ideally be variations in care.
  • The audit cycle should include data collection at baseline, the intervention or change in practice, and re-audit after a pre-agreed time to measure change.

Entries must be made electronically by 17.30 on Friday 30 August 2024.
