Come to Vancouver!

Safe Communities Canada, Safe Kids Canada, SMARTRISK, the Canadian Red Cross and ThinkFirst Canada are pleased to announce the …
2011 Canadian Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion Conference

November 16 – 18, 2011. Westin Bayshore Hotel, Vancouver, B.C.

The theme of the 2011 Canadian Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion Conference is Be Visible, connecting Evidence to Action in Injury, Violence and Suicide Prevention. This conference offers you a unique opportunity to connect the dots between your specific interests and the outcomes you seek, whether in transportation, home, school, community, sports, public health, violence or self inflicted injury and more.

The conference will:

* Highlight the latest science and best practices in policy and programs;
* Actively bridge the gap between research and practice by highlighting specific policy and practice recommendations;
* Encourage networking and collaboration between different sectors to promote action and policy change;
* Facilitate participation from stakeholders representing vulnerable populations.

Who Should Attend?

This conference will interest those working in urban, rural or Aboriginal settings, as a community worker, volunteer, first responder, researcher, manager, policy or program specialist, from the public, private or non-governmental organizational sectors.

Your specific interest may lie in public health, transportation, sports and recreation, child protection or social services or community and public relations. Or, your focus may be on policy, research, education, or on the front line, as a first responder, social services or community worker, or a police or fire professional.
Who’s Speaking?

Hear from world-renowned leaders in the field of injury and those who have been personally touched by injury, on the sub-themes of: Shed Light and Raise Awareness; Stand Up and Speak Out; Organize and Mobilize; and Be Seen.

Here are a few of our confirmed speakers to date:

* Sheldon Kennedy, a former NHL hockey player who broke his silence about his years of abuse at the hands of a hockey coach, encouraging others to do the same;
* Dr. Jeremy Shiffman, an Associate Professor of Public Administration and Policy at American University, who will share with delegates his research into why some issues receive priority while others are neglected, and how to ensure yours gets on the public agenda;
* Dr. David Sleet, of the U.S. National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, whose work has led to changes in child-proof lighter standards, BAC levels for drinking and driving and who helped bring attention to the issue of airbags and child safety;
* Dr. David Meddings, of the World Health Organization’s Department of Violence and Injury Prevention and Disability, who coordinates WHO work on child injury prevention, burns, drowning prevention and falls;
* Dr. Jamie Kissick, a sport medicine physician whose main clinical interest is concussions in athletes and who is the former head team physician of the Ottawa Senators;
* Dahna Sanderson, a marketing professional and former figure skating coach who started the Donald Sanderson Memorial Fund, in honour of her son who died after falling into a coma, as a result of a head injury sustained during a hockey game;
* Kelly Lendsay, the President and CEO of Aboriginal Human Resource Council, one of Canada’s foremost innovators and social entrepreneurs dealing with Aboriginal diversity in Canada.
