2nd Annual Virtual Injury Prevention Center Research Symposium

Using Technology to Advance Injury Prevention Surveillance, Interventions, and Training


 

Join us for the 2nd Annual Virtual Injury Prevention Center Research Symposium: Using Technology to Advance Injury Prevention Surveillance, Interventions, and Training

 

The University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center has organized a unique event for researchers, post-doctoral fellows, and students to disseminate research, facilitate new collaborations, and explore new ideas for injury prevention research.

The theme of this symposium is “Using Technology to Advance Injury Prevention Surveillance, Interventions, and Training.

DATE/TIME: Friday, November 12, 2021 from 12:30 pm – 5 pm ET (with an optional in-person networking event from 8-10am contingent of COVID-19 guidelines)

LOCATION: Online Event (Links will be provided to registrants before the event)

An in-person Injury Prevention Research Networking Breakfast will be held on the morning of the symposium from 8am-10am (Contingent on COVID-19 guidelines). Please join us for breakfast and networking, if you are able.

The event is free but registration is required.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Although the theme of the symposium is using technology to advance injury prevention work, we are accepting abstracts that focus on all aspects of injury prevention. These could include:

  • Opioids and Overdose
  • Suicide
  • Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)
  • Older Adult Falls
  • Motor Vehicle Crash
  • Concussion
  • Violence (youth violence, peer violence, dating violence, sexual assault, firearm violence)

We are accepting abstracts that will describe: innovative strategies to expand and enhance injury prevention research and prevention, adoption of new evidence-based injury prevention practices, translation and communication of injury prevention science and information, effective partnerships among organizations in developing new collaborative injury prevention approaches, injury prevention efforts in the context of COVID-19, or injury prevention in relation to social justice and/or vulnerable populations. Submissions highlighting research or practice are welcome. After review, authors will be notified of the planning committee’s decision by email.

If accepted, abstract presenters will be asked to give a 5-minute flash science presentation accompanied by no more than 4 slides during the virtual event. Abstract presentations will be held in breakout rooms, and attendees will be able to ask questions and have further discussion.

Abstract Guidelines:

  • Abstracts will be accepted beginning now until Wednesday, September 15, 2021 11:59 pm ET.
  • Abstracts are limited to 300 words (including header titles).
  • At least one author on the abstract must attend the symposium and present the abstract.
  • Abstracts must address one of the injury focus areas described in the Center for Disease Control Injury Research Agenda (https://www.cdc.gov/injury/pdfs/researchpriorities/cdc-injury-research-priorities.pdf). Examples include, the prevention of opioid overdose, suicide, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), older adult falls, motor vehicle crash, concussion, or violence (youth violence, peer violence, intimate partner/dating violence, sexual assault).
  • Abstracts should include the following headings:
    1. Statement of Purpose
    2. Methods/Approach
    3. Results/Conclusions
    4. Innovation & Significance to the field

 

FREE CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS (LIVE EVENT ONLY)

NOTE: Individuals interested in continuing education credits MUST attend the entire live event in order to earn the credits (no partial credits will be awarded) AND complete the online evaluation survey which will be sent out to all attendees after the event.

Continuing Medical Education (CME)

Expected Results: Clinicians, other healthcare professionals, and social workers will be able to recognize and understand injury risks and apply this new knowledge into practice by intervening to prevent injury.

Learning Objectives: Clinicians, other healthcare professionals, and social workers will be able to identify the latest evidence-based injury prevention research. Participants will be able to translate the new knowledge from science into practice for injury prevention.

Accreditation and Credit Designation:

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the University of Michigan Medical School and the University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center. The University of Michigan Medical School is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University of Michigan Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of XX AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
