The Australian Injury Prevention Network (AIPN) are pleased to invite you to the premier injury prevention conference for Australia and the Asia Pacific, the 14th Australasian Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion Conference, to be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, Australia, 25 – 27 November 2019.
With a theme of Pushing the Boundaries, this conference will challenge the traditional injury prevention paradigms to examine future disruptions and opportunities for injury prevention. This will be explored through innovative technologies and changing digital societies, and new multisectoral strategies for partnerships across government portfolios, clinicians, practitioners, industry, researchers and community.
The 3rd GrassRoots Falls Festival will be held 19-20 September 2019 on the Fremantle Esplanade, WA. Abstract submissions are now open.
The festival, themed “People, Partners and Purpose 2020 & Beyond”, provides an opportunity for health professionals and other staff across all settings, managers, educators, policy makers, and others with an interest in reducing the risk of falling among older people to enjoy sharing the latest ideas and innovative approaches in practice, research and falls prevention at the GrassRoots level. The festival focus is to support the broad falls prevention community to access current research, practice innovations, cutting edge work in falls prevention and management and other exciting GrassRoots falls prevention initiatives that are happening in Australia and overseas. The program will feature presentations from across the residential aged care, hospital and community settings.
