Call for Abstracts


The following conference themes have been developed in collaboration with the AIPN Indigenous sub-committee, Executive Group, Conference Organising committee and Conference Scientific Committee. In line with the overarching conference theme ‘Weaving knowledges for injury prevention and safety promotion; creating a new way together’, these abstract sub themes have been developed to align with the conference guiding principles and in the spirit of celebrating diverse knowledge systems coming together.  

We recognise that your work might fit into and across multiple themes which is congruent with the weaving metaphor.


For the purpose of abstract submission, please choose one theme that most aligns with your work.
