Going Virtual 14th – 16th April 2021
As the COVID-19 situation continues to change rapidly, the BSCCP Executive Committee has taken the decision to deliver the entire conference virtually. The same high quality programme will be available over the original dates planned starting with the Trainers Seminar on the afternoon of 14th April and the main conference running 15th -16th April 2021 in this re-accreditation year.
Whilst there is no substitute for having a face-to-face meeting, it is expected that a virtual event will make it more accessible to a wider audience. Without the need to incur travel and accommodation expenses, delegates can also choose to view the conference at a time that is convenient to them as all presentations will be available ‘on demand’ and can be viewed for up to 6 weeks after the conference.
Delegates can take part in the same high-quality programme without leaving their home/place of work and there will be many different ways to interact with invited speakers, poster presenters, fellow delegates as well as sponsors and exhibitors.
The virtual platform will provide:
- A mixture of Live and Pre-recorded Sessions
- Facilities for interactions with attendees, speakers, and exhibitors:
- Live Q&A
- Live Polling
- Discussion Forum
- Session Surveys
- Handouts and Session Notes
- Group Conversations
- E-Poster Sessions with live poster presentations
- Virtual Exhibition with video meetings
- Attendees can see/message/arrange 1:1 live meetings with one another

We appreciate that in virtual format, this year’s BSCCP conference will be a different experience from that to which we have become accustomed, but we know there is a thirst for knowledge and learning within the community and we are committed to delivering this. We hope that you will join with us and embrace the changes that we have had to make in this ever-evolving global situation in which we find ourselves in.
