2016 World Safety Conference Call for Abstracts
Abstract submission for the 12th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion, Safety 2016, is open. The main theme for Safety 2016 is ‘From Research to Implementation’. Injuries and violence, including suicides and self-harm, are one of the greatest challenges in global health. While experts in injury prevention and safety promotion recognize the need for action, knowledge and practice are not consistently applied to policies and programmes in the field.
If you have the latest research information, experiences on successful models or some suggestions on how to tackle this global problem, please submit an abstract via conference website. HIPRC looks forward to getting a number of submission in for this conference. Who knows, maybe you can enjoy a Finnish sauna after you present! The deadline for submission is November 1, 2015.
