The School of Health and Social Work at the University of Hertfordshire is pleased to announce their forthcoming Health and Social Work Conference. A stimulating and broad range of oral papers and posters will be presented by research students registered on PhD and DHRes health related Doctorates within the University of Hertfordshire.
The call for abstracts, for an oral presentation and/or poster, is open to all HSK based post-graduate research students who are undertaking health and/or social work related research (whatever the programme and wherever it is being studied). Eligibility will also be extended to those who have completed a post-graduate research programme within the preceding 12 months.
In addition, all post-graduate research students within the School of Life and Medical Sciences [LMS] will be invited to submit an abstract for a poster (however, if an LMS student has an HSK supervisor, an abstract for an oral paper will be considered).

You may submit an abstract based on your literature review or research design/protocol for example, or on your study findings and implications. Papers may focus on empirical research, policy or practice, or be concerned with an underpinning theoretical framework. You are eligible to submit if you:
