How to Submit an Abstract

Abstract Submissions for SCaH 2023 is now closed.  All Rapid Fire and Poster presenters must attend the conference in-person.

‘Rapid Fire’ presentations and a Poster Exhibition will be available at the in-person Smoking Cessation and Health Conference, giving delegates a platform to showcase their work and share their learning with peers.  This year’s over-arching theme is ‘The Sustainability of Treating Tobacco Dependency’, along with the following sub-themes (tbc):

  • National policy
  • Smoking cessation within Acute Secondary Care
  • Reducing Smoking in Pregnancy
  • Smoking cessation and mental health services
  • Community smoking cessation
  • Inequalities and smoking
  • Innovation in smoking cessation practice
  • Consolidated themes including Core20plus5

A £100 prize will be given for the best ‘Rapid Fire’ oral presentation and best poster presentation.  Abstract submissions are an opportunity to present your current initiatives and work to colleagues across the UK.  You are invited to submit presentations on ‘Sustainability of Treating Tobacco Dependency ’ and how you are embedding services as well maximizing the benefits you have learned to achieve our smokefree generation.  Abstracts might be a case study, details of your own professional experience, a trial, audit or new initiative. Rapid Fire presentations should be presentable in 5 minutes or less and comprise no more than 4 slides.

Like last year, the abstract submission process is very straightforward and you will be notified by Friday 11th August 2023  if you are successful in securing an oral presentation or poster for inclusion.
