Faculty of Old Age Psychiatry Annual Conference 2024

Event Information

The Faculty of Old Age Psychiatry is inviting poster submissions for our conference in April 2024. All submissions will be reviewed ahead of the conference and successful authors will then be invited to have their poster displayed at the conference.


1. Abstracts must be in English. Abbreviations may be used only if they are defined (spelled out in full text at first mention) followed by abbreviation in brackets.
2. The abstract must not exceed 300 words including sub titles (see No 4) and formulas.
3. The abstract must not contain bibliographical references, tables, diagrams or appendices. If accepted for presentation at the conference these can be added at a later date.
4. Abstracts must be presented in five headed paragraphs in the following order:
Aims and hypothesis, Background, Methods, Results, and Conclusions.
5. Abstracts could present either novel findings or new interpretations of existing data; Quality Improvement
projects; Education and Training projects or other types of service evaluation, audit or case reports. They should include brief details of the rationale for the research and the methods used, including, if appropriate, the statistical approach. The major findings should be stated; it will not be acceptable, for example, to state merely that the "results will be discussed"

The title of the abstract must be clearly coherent with the data included in the abstract and the conclusions must be warranted by information included in the results section.  Submissions are accepted on the understanding that the work has been performed with the permission of any relevant ethical or legislative body. The authors should therefore ensure the work was conducted with appropriate ethical and governance safeguards.
7. Authors are encouraged to state their hypotheses and frame their conclusions accordingly.
8. For studies of service users, patients or populations, the number of people studied should be explicitly stated in the methods section.
9. Submissions are accepted on the understanding that the work has been performed with the permission of any relevant ethical or legislative body. The authors should therefore ensure the work was conducted with appropriate ethical and governance safeguards.

He was subsequently appointed senior lecturer at St Charles Hospital. A popular, committed, caring old age psychiatrist with a good sense of humour, he contributed much to psychiatric training. He died suddenly at the age of 44, leaving a young family.

The prize will be awarded for the best short scientific paper presented by a trainee.
