The British Trauma Society was founded in 1989 to bring together everyone involved in the care of the injured from roadside to rehabilitation. Today we are going strong as the oldest multi-disciplinary trauma focussed Charitable Society in the UK and are glad to say that we represent a diverse, multi-disciplinary spectrum, including medical and allied healthcare professionals.
ASM 2022 – Deadline EXTENDED for Abstract Submission –
As a Society we appreciate the pressures faced by colleagues over the last couple of years compounded by the back log and chaos around college exams and applications to specialty training being faced by those in and prospecting for training pathways.
The DEADLINE for submitting a provisional abstract has been extended until 31 AUGUST … However, this does not need to be in final completed form…
The BTS executive have agreed to accept ‘provisional’ abstracts which allows an abstract (submitted by 31 August) to be ‘provisionally’ accepted as a poster or podium presentation and allows the Author to update the abstract to a final version up until 1 month before the annual scientific meeting on the 23rd November 2022. Registration deadlines for the meeting will still be adhered to and all presenters will be expected to register for the meeting 6 weeks before the meeting
