Abstract submission

Please read our guidance on submitting abstracts before sending in a form. Forms that are incomplete or not completed correctly will be sent back and will not be included in the marking unless completed satisfactorily.

This year there are TWO forms. One for those wishing to give an oral presentation (free paper or rapid-fire free paper) and one for paper posters (there are no electronic posters).

To support orthoptists with the cost of producing a paper poster, BIPOSA will give a grant of up to £50 to reimburse the cost of private printing a poster only on production of a receipt. We will not cover hopsital / university medical illustration or departmental printing costs (only private printing costs)

Evaluation and Certificates

CPD has evolved to focus on self-reflection not collection of evidence.
