How can I claim CPD points for this event?
The BSH 2022 ASM has sought accreditation with the Royal College of Pathologists. Attendees at the Pitfalls Day will be accredited with up to 6 CPD points. The main conference has up to 28 points accredited for face-to-face attendees. Unfortunately as per previous years, we cannot accredit on-demand attendance due to the nature of the content, but any livestreamed sessions watched via the online platform will be accredited.
Certificates will be processed and shared with attendees who complete the post-event survey by Wednesday 20 April 2022.
When will I be able to watch the sessions virtually?
The majority of content from the ASM will be presented face-to-face in Manchester. However, all plenary sessions will be livestreamed to our online audience, in addition to some exclusive online-only sessions and presentations.
All main conference sessions are planned to be recorded and made available on-demand on the virtual event platform within two weeks of the conference closing for all attendees to watch.
The Pitfalls Day is a highly interactive day within the ASM, and as such will not be livestreamed online, and will only be available in a face-to-face format.
I have been allocated an oral presentation of my abstract, can I complete this virtually?
For anyone with an oral abstract presentation allocated to their successful submission, it is preferred that you attend the face-to-face conference, as there is currently not an opportunity for virtual oral abstract presentation.
Will the Therme Manchester Marathon affect my visit on Sunday 3 April?
The Therme Manchester Marathon is due to take place on Sunday 3 April and there will therefore be some road closures taking place to make way for the route. Therefore please allocate plenty of travel time, and if you intend to join the ASM on Sunday, we recommend you travel into Manchester on the Saturday to have minimal impact on your travel. the route map can be viewed here Route Map - Manchester Marathon

For those attending face-to-face, Manchester Central is designed for maximum accessibility. Most of their exhibition space is on the ground floor/street level and can be easily accessed via the main entrance. Their entrances are fully accessible and foyer entrances are sensor-activated. Sessions on the first floor can be accessed via stairs or lifts.
