Call for posters 

The 2019 Spiritual Care Matters Conference Committee invites abstracts for poster presentations. We welcome abstracts on any aspect of psycho-spiritual care, from both academic and practitioner perspectives, and we encourage students and trainees to submit abstracts. There will be an award for the best poster display at the Conference.

Posters will be displayed in a prominent area for viewing during the breaks. Your poster should aim to stimulate debate, raise issues of concern, or highlight good practice in psycho-spiritual care by teams or individuals.
