Call for Abstracts

The Call for Abstracts is now closed and the submissions received are with the Abstract Reviewers. Results will be issued in early April 2018. Thank you for your submissions

The Society and Faculty of Occupational Medicine invite the submission of abstracts for either oral or poster presentation*
(*Please ensure that you specify which format you prefer.)

We are keen to receive abstracts relating to any aspect of Occupational Health, from both academic and practitioner delegates. The theme of Occupational Health 2018 is “Research, Practice and Policy” and abstracts relevant to those topics are especially welcome, as are submissions from overseas. Case reports will be also be considered.

A session within the programme has been set aside for oral presentations (free papers) and posters will be located in an easily-accessible area for viewing during all break times.

All delegates are encouraged to present material that will stimulate debate, raise issues of concern or highlight quality work being carried out by teams or individuals.  This is an excellent opportunity to present to a large audience (around 250 participants) from the UK and abroad.
