Professional conferences are a traditional way to share knowledge, whether you are presenting or attending. Here are some NHS Scotland options to consider.
NHS Scotland Event poster abstract submissions are usually due late January/early February, and the conference is held in June every year in Glasgow. Various members of library staff have attended and presented posters at this event. They will be happy to share their experiences with colleagues if you would like some advice.
"Every year, [this] Event provides the opportunity for those working in and with the NHS in Scotland to come together to consider the challenges, to share best practice and the most innovative approaches to delivering the highest quality of care and to take away tools and techniques that will support them in their various roles."
NHS Research Scotland
"Scotland’s leading clinical research conference, bringing together delegates across NHS, academia, industry and third sector". As well as its own annual conference, NRS promotes other smaller/specialty-specific events on its calendar.
NHS Education for Scotland (NES)
NES hosts the annual National Scottish Medical Education conference in April each year. It is described as being "of interest to all those involved in medical education, training and appraisal, including students, trainees, trainers, appraisees, appraisers, managers, those working in primary care, secondary care, Universities, Deaneries and Medical Royal Colleges".
In addition, NES promotes other events on its calendar and through its education and training pages for individual disciplines.
You may also wish to consider any conferences organised by your Professional Organisation; these are often held annually. Some examples include; Royal College of Nursing Congress, Royal College of Psychiatrists International Congress, and the Royal College of Occupational Therapists Annual Conference.
