Graeme Schofield Oration 2018
19 Sep 2018 at 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Clemenger BBDO Auditorium, National Gallery of Victoria, St Kilda Road, Melbourne VIC
Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine
The Oration will focus on Injury Prevention and Public Health Research in the 21st Century. It provides an opportunity for policy makers, regulators, academics, researchers, students, and funders to be exposed to injury prevention and capacity building in the wider public health agenda.
The Oration will be given by United States based Professor Adnan A. Hyder – one of the world’s foremost injury prevention researchers. He will use his 20 years of experience and work in more than 85 countries to demonstrate the value of injury prevention to health and society and suggest opportunities for confronting challenges.
The Oration will cover a wide range of injury causes such as suicide, road traffic fatalities, violence, falls, drowning, burns, and risk factors like alcohol. It will also outline the role of international research and capacity building collaborations.
The Oration will highlight the need for national institutions to play a greater role in translational research and training in the prevention of deaths and injuries in low- and middle-income countries, which have the world’s highest rates of preventable deaths and injuries.
