Abstract SubmissionShare your research findings!

The ARTP Annual Conference is a premier meeting to present your research and we invite authors to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations at the 2019 Conference in Glasgow.

Abstract submissions have been increasing over recent years in number and quality, and so we would encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible. They can consist of scientific presentations (such as presenting new theories, techniques, clinical research, etc), clinical presentations (such as case studies, new therapeutic approaches, etc) or innovative systems of work (such as new patient care pathways, audits, etc).

You are invited to present it at our forthcoming conference in a friendly, supportive and educational atmosphere and by doing so it will help you gain recognition for your work and boost your profile among the UK's leading respiratory experts.

ARTP Abstract Categories

Abstracts should be submitted in one of three categories:

Word Cloud

The decision as to whether a presentation is to be a poster or oral communication will be solely that of the Abstract committee, whose decision will be final. The abstracts committee will review all abstracts submitted by the closing date using an anonymous version. Each abstract will be scrutinized and amendments requested where required to ensure the high quality and scientific worth of the conference and the 'Inspire' journal.

An abstract, which may be an Oral (Spoken Poster) or Poster Communication is a means of communicating work in progress or completed work and may include interesting case studies, research or audits.

 Abstracts should be submitted in one of three categories – 

  1. Respiratory
  2. Sleep
  3. Quality Improvement and Patient Safety

The decision as to whether a presentation is to be a poster or oral communication will be solely that of the ARTP Research Abstract committee.

The abstracts committee will - 

  • Review all abstracts submitted by the closing date using an anonymised version.
  • Require that an abstract that does not conform to these guidelines be amended before acceptance in order to maintain the high quality and scientific worth of abstracts published in Inspire.

Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QIPS) 

The ARTP Innovation Award is changing. This will now be named the ARTP Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QIPS) award. The format of this award will be similar to the current awards that are presented to the best Respiratory and Sleep Abstracts.

We are kindly inviting Hospital Departments and Services to submit QIPS abstracts to the ARTP Annual Conference 2019 in order to raise awareness and to promote QIPS within Healthcare Science.

QIPS strategies may include but are not limited to the following areas of clinical practice with the key theme of Inspiring Quality, Safety and Productivity into Healthcare Science:

  • Implementation of new medical device (s) and/or technology (ies)
  • Service redevelopment to include patient pathways, increasing outpatient capacity, public patient involvement, community respiratory/sleep services, cost saving techniques)
  • Strategies/Initiatives to improve patient outcomes
  • Strategies/Initiatives to improve patient safety

QIPS abstracts should be submitted and presented in the same way as Research abstracts. A panel of judges will mark each QIPS Abstract during the conference programme and the one that receives the highest score will be presented the ARTP QIPS Award during the Gala Dinner.  

In addition the QIPS abstracts will be published in the ARTP Inspire Journal.
