Health and Wellbeing in Developmental Disabilities Conference: Call for Abstracts

The Health and Wellbeing in Developmental Disabilities Conference will take place on October 27-28, 2015. The goal of this conference is to engage health care providers and students from a variety of disciplines in professional knowledge transfer and discussion, in order to improve the health and wellbeing across the life span for persons with a developmental disability.

The conference planning group invites abstract submissions for 45- or 90-minute interactive workshops and for poster presentations. Submissions from students are strongly encouraged. Presentations can address any stage across the life span for persons with a developmental disability and should address one or more of the following areas:

  • Effective practices to help improve health and wellbeing
  • How interprofessional collaboration can improve the
    delivery of health care
  • Innovative and emerging practices and outcomes in the
    assessment and treatment of complex needs
  • The role of community health care in providing appropriate care
