Regular readers of the Injury Prevention blog are well-aware of my passionate support for conferences: not only do you get to learn about and share cutting-edge research, networking with peers can be invaluable for many, many, reasons, not least of which is sparking new collaborative research and practice efforts. This quick blog is to let you know about an opportunity to participate in a conference here in sunny Australia. I hope to see you ‘down under’!
