Submission Deadline: May 5, 2021, 12:00 PM ET
The Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR) will be hosting its first ever virtual research Forum in October 2021. As a result of the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to ensure the safety of all CIMVHR stakeholders, our in-person event scheduled for October 25-27, 2021 in Halifax will instead be held from October 17-19, 2022 in Halifax.
We realize the importance of Forum and in an effort to continue the conversation related to the health needs of military personnel, Veterans, their families, and other related populations from both a research and impact perspective, CIMVHR will be moving to a virtual Forum in 2021.
The CIMVHR Virtual Forum will provide researchers with the opportunity to showcase their research to our stakeholders and the public at large. Researchers are encouraged to submit abstracts on emerging research opportunities in many research areas in health and well-being. CIMVHR will offer an opportunity to submit on emerging research including, but not limited to, knowledge translation, peer support, mental health, prevention and management of chronic pain, battlefield medicine, gender diversity, women’s health, musculoskeletal disorders, families, public safety personnel, artificial intelligence, and COVID-19.
The program will enable participants to discuss (via chatroom) and understand key research activities that can influence research development, policy development, programs, clinical practice, and implementation.
CIMVHR will accept Research and Program/Intervention Evaluation abstracts for Poster and Oral presentations in early April 2021 until May 5, 2021. After May 5, 2021 we will no longer be accepting submission.
