Dear IPCRG Colleague,

10th IPCRG World Conference, Breathing & Living Well: The Importance of Primary Care, Croke Park, Dublin 28-30 May 2020
Conference Session Submission:
We will be announcing the programme at the end of January 2020 and those who submitted proposals will know the outcome on January 27th 2020.

Abstract Submission for Oral Presentation and Poster Display:
Now that the deadline for session submissions has passed, there is still plenty of time to submit an abstract for either an oral presentation or poster display and the deadline for this is 2359hrs GMT on January 27th, 2020.  
Submit your abstract
There are three different categories for abstracts that can be submitted for the 10th World Conference and they are as follows:

Clinical Research Results Abstract 
IPCRG campaigns for patient care to be evidence-based but using evidence from real life using representative populations. This category is for applied clinical research or implementation science that contains qualitative and/or quantitative data related to a study involving patients with respiratory disease or problems commonly found in primary and community care settings.

Implementation Science/Service Development Abstract 
This category is an opportunity for you to share your learning about improving a service or implementing the evidence in a new setting. For example, you may have tackled variation in emergency hospital admissions for children with asthma in your area.  These abstracts must also include data.

Research Ideas Abstract on Respiratory Conditions and Tobacco Dependency
We are aware that there are few academic centres of primary respiratory care and access to academic expertise to guide and mentor their research is not easy to find.  Therefore IPCRG accepts abstracts that describe a research question and a methodology that would benefit from peer discussion and challenge.
Short ‘TAPAS’ Presentations 
In addition to the above, at the 9th IPCRG World Conference in Porto we introduced another option for delegates to share their work outside of the usual Oral Presentation/Poster Display option. This was a session of 12 short oral presentations of 5 mins’ each. Both delegates and presenters enjoyed this session and are repeating it in 2020. We are looking for ideas in this session rather than evidence-based research. The idea could be based on a single practice or on a larger scale and cover, for instance the best use of appointment times or medicines optimisation using a Practice Pharmacist.
Remember the deadline for submitting an abstract is 27 January 2020 at 2359hrs GMT.
