Thursday 18th March 2021 Virtual Conference Back

We have now made the difficult decision not to hold a face to face conference in 2021. We feel this is the responsible course of action in the current climate with the surge in cases of COVID-19 in many areas of the UK, resulting in increased pressure on NHS staff and general uncertainty as to whether it would be possible to hold a COVID safe conference in line with government guidelines.

As an alternative, we are intending to hold, free of charge for all BADS members, a one-day Virtual Conference on Thursday 18th March 2021, with a strong focus on the importance of day surgery in the recovery and sustainability of elective surgery during COVID-19 and beyond.

Topics to be covered include:

- COVID-19 and the challenges facing elective surgery
- Why should we default to day surgery to maintain elective pathways
- Delivering day surgery during COVID-19 pressures
- How COVID-19 has changed pre assessment practice
- Recent experiences of how to achieve successful day case Orthopaedics, Gynaecological, Maxillofacial, General Surgery & Urology

Abstract submission:
BADS is encouraging the submission of abstracts (250 words), which will be peer-reviewed and scored. Accepted work will be presented in e-poster format. There will be gold, silver and bronze awards for high scoring abstracts and the top scoring authors will be invited to deliver oral presentations (pre-recorded) that will be broadcast during a prize paper session at the virtual conference.

The abstract submission window has been extended with a new deadline of Sunday 24th January 2021. Submission now closed.
