Abstract Submissions Open for NATSIEHC21
Abstract submissions are now open for the 2021 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Eye Health Conference: The Gap and Beyond.
The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Eye Health Conference (NATSIEHC) 2021: The Gap and Beyond will be held virtually on 20 – 22 April 2021 and we are inviting abstract submissions for Oral, Table Top, Workshop and Poster presentations in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander eye health.
We welcome abstracts from all working in or interested in improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander eye health. Topics should be relevant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander eye health and efforts to close the gap for vision and ultimately eliminate avoidable vision loss and blindness for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in Australia. This could include eye care in primary care; eye care stakeholder collaborations; community-led and cultural engagement approaches and initiatives; workforce development; challenges in coordination and case management; improving outcomes and access to services; health system changes and reform.
The conference will bring elements from the postponed Close the Gap for Vision National Conference 2020 and, in 2021, will be delivered fully online.
Closing date for abstract submission is Monday 18 January 2021. We particularly welcome and encourage submissions from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and presenters.
To submit an abstract and to view more information about the abstract submission process, please visit the conference section of the IEH website.
We hope to see you at the conference and thank you for considering sharing your experience and knowledge.
