Call for reviewers

Hospice UK’s national conference is the flagship event for the end of life care sector. Offering inspiration, creativity and lively debate, the programme offers revitalising opportunities to connect and share.

This year we invited you to help shape the content of our conference, by applying to join the review panel in assessing abstracts submitted via our call for papers. We also had exciting new mentoring opportunities to support those who are less familiar with writing abstracts.

Applications closed on 4 March. Thank you to all who applied. We are delighted with the responses and will contact applicants soon.

Operations Guide

Help shape the content of our conference

Would you like to join our panel in reviewing abstracts submitted in response to our call for papers? We are seeking expressions of interest from those who can offer their experience, expertise and time as we decide which abstracts should be selected for an oral presentation or display poster.

If you have not been part of such a process before but are interested to do so please do contact us. We may be able to team you up with a more experienced partner.


Hospice UK’s national conference showcases a stimulating array of ideas and approaches. The call for papers is critical in shaping the content for oral or poster presentation as we seek abstracts to encourage debate and discussion. 

We are delighted to receive abstracts from current and future leaders, thinkers and ‘doers’ and from those new to presenting their work, along with those who are more experienced. 

In recognition of the support, the names of those taking part in the review panel will be listed in the conference programme.

What's involved?

Reviewers are allocated a partner and each pair will receive c. 20 abstracts for anonymised peer review. An abstract scoring sheet will be provided alongside associated guidance. This activity takes place between 17 May and 21 June. One reviewer from each pair will be asked to provide feedback to a selection panel in June.

Our reviewers

Our qualified reviewers offer their experience to the abstract review process and help inform our conference. 

The closing date for applications was 4 March. Thank you to all who applied. We will be in touch with applicants soon.

If you have any further queries about your application please contact us.
