Clinical papers & posters


Clinical Papers

Abstracts to be presented at the combined ANZCVS / EVA session on Monday 20 July, 2020 are now being accepted. Please note that accepted abstracts will be printed in The Australian Equine Veterinarian and The Proceedings of the ANZCVS Science Week. The abstracts can be recent research, clinical projects, or alternatively a case series or report involving any aspect of equine veterinary science.

Submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by a panel appointed by both EVA and the equine chapter of the ANZCVS, and if accepted, the author will be invited to present their abstract on Monday 20 July 2020 at the Pullman Melbourne Albert Park on Day One of the Bain Fallon Memorial Lectures 2020. A submission form should accompany every abstract, and multiple abstracts can be submitted.

The presentation time is 12 minutes with an additional three (3) minutes for questions and discussion. The purpose of the clinical papers is to inform attendees of clinical research or case experience that they can use in their own practices, for the benefit of clients and their horses. You will be notified by email by the 22 May, 2020, if your abstract has been accepted. A number of prizes will be on offer by both organisations for the best presentations. A presenter can only receive one EVA prize, although they can receive an EVA prize and the ANZCVS prize. Please see Clinical Papers Guidelines for further information.

Poster presentations should be loaded on to the computer in the main lecture room with IT during one of the breaks during the day on 20 July. It is suggested that three (3) slides will be enough.
