Location In-person

Convened by the Australasian Injury Prevention Network (AIPN), the theme of this conference is ‘Weaving knowledges for injury prevention and safety promotion: creating a new way together’.

Weaving is a cultural practice shared amongst many Indigenous groups and is used in this theme to symbolise the coming together of multiple knowledge systems to create something new, strong, and connected. Injury is a cross cutting issue that has impacts beyond just the ‘classic’ injury prevention paradigms and is relevant to housing, climate change, urban health, suicide prevention, family violence, employment, alcohol and drug and product safety for example. Attendees are invited from all backgrounds and disciplines, across government portfolios, clinicians, practitioners, industry, researchers and communities to reimagine injury prevention and safety promotion.
