Fuse 2018 conference: Call for abstracts

16 October 2017

If you're a researcher, academic, policy-maker or health care practitioner who has grappled with, and found solutions to, the challenge of using evidence, including conflicting evidence, in policy-making, Fuse 2018 wants to hear from you.

Submit your abstract to Fuse 2018: the 4th Fuse International Conference on Knowledge Exchange in Public Health by November 27. You can prepare an oral presentation, poster, workshop or lightning talk. No matter what the format, your topic should address the conference theme (outlined below) and at least one of the subthemes of practice-based evidence, economic evidence, communicating evidence, diversity in public health policy or partnerships between researchers and policy makers.

Conference theme | Research evidence for healthy public policy: Learning across jurisdictions and sectors

Good public policy is integral to successfully promoting and protecting the health of citizens and protecting them from illness and disability. Research evidence is an ideal foundation for good policy, but it is often challenging to integrate evidence in the process because of competing priorities, constrained resources, inter-sectoral and jurisdictional barriers, ideology, changing structures, issues with data, public opinion, and increasingly complex problems.

Abstract specifications are available on the Fuse 2018 website. Abstracts must be written in English and submitted via an online form by November 27, 2017
