Safety 2022 – Abstracts welcome


Reconnecting, reinvigorating and reimaging Injury Prevention at the Safety 2022 conference to be held in Adelaide from 27 to 30 November 2022. From 10 January 2022, abstract submission is open, via the conference website.  Abstracts relevant to the conference themes are welcome: these can relate to injury prevention policy, research or programmes. Guidelines for abstracts can be found here.


Following two years of pandemic-related changes to how we live, work, exercise and play, it is time to take stock and rethink injury prevention priorities, reach, process and implementation. Safety 2022 is a great opportunity to reconvene, in person or virtually.


The conference scope will cover a range of topics such as falls prevention, farm safety, suicide prevention, safe communities, road safety and poisoning prevention, and many others. There will also be workshops and satellite events, making your travel to Adelaide a worthwhile and rewarding experience.


Most importantly, Safety 2022 provides a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with the injury prevention community, internationally; meeting old friends and making new ones.


Looking forward to seeing you in Adelaide in 2022!
