NELA sponsored trainee poster prize

NELA will be sponsoring a Trainee poster prize at the WSM. This is for the best poster that uses your hospital’s NELA data to bring about an improvement in care. 

 The criteria for a successful poster will be judged on:

  • Whether it demonstrates use of local NELA data
  • Whether it uses established QI methodology
  • Has multidisciplinary involvement (ideally)
  • Whether it demonstrates an improvement in care, which could be improvements in process or outcome
  • The extent to which public and patients are involved in design and delivery of improvements to care for their project

All accepted abstracts in the above categories will be published in Anaesthesia in the form of a fully referenceable online supplement (NB Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to refuse publication, e.g. where there are major concerns over ethics and/or content).

Abstract submission is now closed.
