NNVAWI Conference: call for abstracts

With a renewed emphasis on the role of nurses and doctors in the fight against domestic / family violence, the 21st NNVAWI Conference in October 2016 will play a very timely and major role in bringing experts,     practitioners and policymakers together to share their wisdom and learnings.

Call for abstracts is now closed

Domestic and family violence is in epidemic proportions in Australia and globally. It threatens the health, well-being and quality of life of women, children and families at tremendous economic and social costs. Successful responses to violence against women, children and families must be undertaken  in collaboration with stakeholders across many sectors and consider the complexity and diversity of women's lives and the communities in which they live.

The health care system and those who work in it have a vital role to play in preventing violence and abuse and reducing its impacts. Progress is being made in identifying effective practices and policies to address violence against women, children and families, both within health care and more broadly.  And yet, there is much more to do.

The Nursing Network on           Violence Against Women International and the Judith Lumley Centre are delighted to present the 21st NNVAWI Conference.
The conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia, from 26 – 28 October           2016.

Abstracts for presentations that focus on research, innovations, educational initiatives, policies and programs that advance a vision of a violence free world will be accepted until April 1, 2016.
