Dear IPCRG Colleagues
Reason nine to submit an abstract for our 4th Scientific Meeting being held in Singapore, 28th – 30th May 2015.
Feedback and support offered for selected abstracts that are relevant but need improvement
The Abstract Committee has offered to help authors whose abstracts are relevant but need improvement before they can be accepted. This is particularly aimed at new researchers.
Tips to improve the success of your clinical research abstract:
  • Include a hypothesis
  • Include data
  • Check it is relevant to a primary care audience
  • Check it is relevant to the conference theme
  • If it is a service development consider if it should be submitted using the Implementation Science/Service Development form.
Tips to improve the success of your Implementation science/service development abstract:
  • State the problem the change is trying to address
  • Specify who: who has made/is making the change, and/or who benefits
  • Include measures: more measures, less text is a good way to think
  • Provide evidence of the change (remember we can learn from changes that are not improvements)
  • Consider how it is relevant for a wider international IPCRG audience
  • Include a final message: so what have you learned that you want to share?
  • Avoid presenting a literature review, we want an analysis of a real service change
  • If it is about clinical medicine it might be more suitable for the Clinical Research Results category
A reminder that delegates from the following countries: Pakistan, Bangladesh, South Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Philippines, Vietnam and Singapore have the opportunity to apply for a bursary to support their attendance at our 4th Scientific Meeting.
Applications to be considered for a bursary should be received by 1st February 2015. We do however welcome applications as soon as you are ready. For more information on criteria and how to apply see website and click on Bursary Programme. Applicants need to submit an abstract for the meeting by Saturday 14th February 2015.

Dear IPCRG Colleagues
Reason eight to submit an abstract for our 4th Scientific Meeting being held in Singapore, 28th – 30th May 2015.
Linguistic and structural issues do not impede acceptance
Our philanthropic mission is to build primary care research capability, which is still an under-developed field. Therefore we aim to provide opportunities for new and inexperienced researchers to reach a wider audience and receive peer review that may be difficult in their own country.
To submit your Clinical Research Results, Research Ideas on Respiratory Conditions and Tobacco Dependence or Implementation Science/Service Development abstract, please follow the links from our website.

Dear IPCRG Colleagues
Reason seven to submit an abstract for our 4th Scientific Meeting being held in Singapore, 28th – 30th May 2015.
Submit previously presented relevant research
Previously presented research is acceptable for submission because our audience is different from other respiratory or primary care conferences and so this is a chance to achieve our mission of getting research findings into the public domain. Please disclose that it has been previously presented. For example, we’ve improved the word count facility so that it matches the ERS word count.
To submit your Clinical Research Results, Research Ideas on Respiratory Conditions and Tobacco Dependence or Implementation Science/Service Development abstract, please follow the links from our website.

Dear IPCRG Colleagues
Reasons to submit an abstract for our 4th Scientific Meeting being held in Singapore, 28th – 30th May 2015.
Reason three
Choice of oral presentation or printed poster
We aim to give as many people as possible a chance to present their findings orally. However, for those who prefer posters or lack confidence eg in speaking in English, there are poster options. These would still require a short oral statement.
To submit your Clinical Research Results, Research Ideas on Respiratory Conditions and Tobacco Dependence or Implementation Science/Service Development abstract, please follow the links from our website.
Reason four
Substantial scope: include multi-morbidity
As a primary care conference with a focus on respiratory care, we welcome submissions on respiratory symptoms eg breathlessness, wheeze and cough, whatever their cause(s); tobacco dependence and its impacts, and also the relationship with mental health.
Reason five
Multi-professional scope
We welcome submissions from nurses, therapists, pharmacists and patients as well as family physicians, paediatricians and pulmonologists.
Reason six
Not just clinical research findings but research ideas and implementation studies too
We accept three categories of submission:
  • Clinical Research Results (that must include a hypothesis, method and data and be relevant to our conference audience of predominantly primary care practitioners
  • Research Ideas on Respiratory Conditions and Tobacco Dependence (that has a title and proposed method but the author seeks feedback on the design)
  • Implementation science/service development
