SHOWCASE CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Short Call for Abstracts -Closed
We invite abstract submissions for long oral presentations, rapid fire, conversation starter and e-posters at the Virtual Pre-Conference Global Injury Prevention Showcase, being held from Monday 22 to Friday 26 March 2021. The Showcase has been established to maintain momentum of the 14th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion which was postponed from 2020 to 2022, and ensure that there is an opportunity between events to engage, network and continue knowledge sharing for the global safety community.
The Virtual Showcase will continue the with theme developed for Safety 2020 - ‘Innovation, Engagement, Action: for a safer future’.
The world sits at a nexus with technology changing the way we work, low and middle income countries faced with addressing a growing injury burden especially around road traffic and the need for new innovative solutions to help provide action for a safer future including addressing violence and self-harm issues. More and more evidence is being generated, adding the greater need to translate research into action, to translate pilot projects to large scale projects.
For injury prevention and safety promotion to be effective and create a safer future engagement will be key; this will include engaging with communities, politicians, researchers, people and other stakeholders. While research is important for developing the evidence base there is an ongoing need for action to ensure appropriate evidenced-based policy development, program delivery, increased funding, collaboration and development of future generations of injury prevention experts for a safer future.
