The Poster Exhibition forms an integral part of best practice, learning and sharing at the Event. With over 500 individuals and teams submitting their projects in 2016, this is a networking opportunity not to be missed.

This year’s poster exhibition will feature over 200 projects that are happening across NHSScotland and partner organisations to support our journey towards the 2020 Vision.  These will represent the shortlisted entries from the Poster Abstracts submitted.  

Who can submit a poster abstract?

Submissions are welcome from NHSScotland employees, our voluntary and partner organisations, and other public or private sector organisations on any aspect of work they are undertaking in, with or on behalf of NHSScotland.  

Why present a poster?

Don’t miss this opportunity to raise awareness of your project, showcase your achievements, gain recognition, share best practice and make new contacts. Posters will be judged at the NHSScotland Event and a winner will be chosen in each poster category. There will also be a People’s Choice Poster Award. This award will be voted for by the delegates at the event. 

The Scottish Government has committed to delivering a range of improvements and reforms to modernise the way we provide care and ensure it is fit for the future.  Once again this year, there will be a special award presented to the poster that is displaying work that is transforming the way care is provided in Scotland through for example, cross-boundary working, innovative approaches to managing unscheduled care, out of hours care; patient flow or delayed discharge as well as measures to tackle preventable ill health.  

If you want your abstract to be considered for the Transformational Change award, please ensure you illustrate this in your abstract (and poster if your poster is selected for display).

All winners will be presented with a trophy during the poster awards presentation in the main auditorium.

Poster Categories

The seven poster categories are based on our priority areas for action stemming from the Quality Ambitions and the ‘triple aim’ as described in the 2020 Vision for Health and Social Care:

  1. Quality of Care: Person-Centred
  2. Quality of Care: Safe
  3. Quality of Care: Effective
  4. Quality of Care: Infrastructure
  5. Health of the Population
  6. Value and Sustainability
  7. Integrated Care

Please ensure that your abstract is linked to at least one of these poster categories. If your abstract cuts across more than one poster category, please choose the category you think is most relevant and submit only under one poster category.
