Safety 2016 World Conference in Tampere
Safety 2016 – the 12th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion will be held in Tampere, Finland, on 18–21 September 2016.
Injuries – intentional and unintentional – are a major burden on public health worldwide. While experts in injury prevention and safety promotion recognize the need for action, the state-of-the-art knowledge and practice from these fields are not consistently applied to policies and programmes in the field.
The main theme for the Safety 2016, “From research to implementation”, seeks to provoke new ideas and experiences to address this gap. The conference brings together over 1000 researchers, practitioners and policy makers to Tampere.
UKK Institute in Many Roles in the Conference
Safety2016 is hosted by the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) and several partners and colleagues from Finland, Europe and the international community. The conference is co-sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO).
– UKK Institute also plays a role in the conference. Institute is a co-operator of THL and will keep many oral and poster presentations at the conference, says Development Director Anne-Mari Jussila from UKK Institute.
The experts giving presentations in sports injuries are Jari Parkkari, Kati Pasanen, Mari Leppänen and Anne-Mari Jussila. In the field of fall prevention for elderly, our speakers are Pekka Kannus, Saija Karinkanta and Radhika Patil.
