Best Poster Competition at the PIF Annual Conference – Wed 25 May 2016

The Power of Partnership: Working in collaboration to deliver high-quality health and care information and support

Posters-14We are delighted to announce that we are now taking entries for the PIF Annual Conference 2016 Best Poster Competition.

‘The Power of Partnership: Working in collaboration to deliver high-quality health and care information and support’ will be the 11th Annual Conference held by the Patient Information Forum. The conference will be held on Wednesday 25 May 2016, at the Royal College of Physicians in London.

The conference brings together individuals and organisations working in patient and health information in the NHS, voluntary, commercial, academic and freelance sectors.

Last year the conference attracted over 200 delegates, and 16 Best Poster competition entries.

What is a Poster?
The purpose of a poster is to outline a piece of work in a form that is easily understood by the reader, and which stimulates interest and discussion. The work presented can be a project, piece of research, evaluation or new information service or resource.

Submitting an entry for the PIF Best Poster Competition provides an opportunity to showcase your work or project. The topic of the poster must relate to health information for patients and the public and, in keeping with the theme of the conference, demonstrate partnership working.  Poster entrants will be required to be available on the 25 May 2016, and pay a delegate fee to attend the conference.

Poster viewing and judging
Posters will be available for delegates to view, and discuss with their authors, during a dedicated, timetabled morning session on the programme. A short summary of the poster will also be included in the conference delegate pack.

The best judged poster on the day, as voted for by delegates, will win a prize, and be featured on the PiF website and in our weekly e-newsletter, PiF Aware.
