Welcome to the BACP Research online poster exhibition. For more than 25 years the BACP annual research conference has supported researchers at all levels in disseminating their work. Alongside this year’s online event, we wanted to give a flavour of the conference experience in terms of variety of research and types of presentation.
Poster presentations are an important aspect of our annual research conference and are often a researcher’s first experience of sharing their work at an event. Poster presentations can be a showcase for student work, though also include research undertaken at different levels of experience. All the content in this exhibition has been peer-reviewed for the BACP Research Conference 2020, where submissions need to demonstrate quality and relevance to practice.
