Professor Zulf Mughal
Despite PIER 2020 moving online we are very keen to continue with the submitted abstracts part of the conference. Clearly there will be some changes but we are confident of delivering high quality presentations and ePosters, as in previous years.
- The top abstracts will be selected for 15-minute online presentation. This presentation will be through the virtual conferencing software, with slides and limited discussion still possible.
- Any other accepted abstracts will be as ePosters, visible on the PIER website
- We would be especially interested in the ways people within the PIER network have innovated during the COVID-19 disruption, these include topics such as-
- Moving education online
- Research on COVID-19
- Changes in clinical practice and innovative ways of dealing with new challenges
