Injury Prevention Network Group

Do you find you’re the only person working on injury prevention in your area? Are you looking for like-minded people to network with?

If you answered yes, then Injury Matters Injury Prevention Network Group might be just what you need!

The Injury Prevention Network Group is a group of injury prevention workers from all over Western Australia who meet four times a year on a Friday morning to share knowledge and information about upcoming projects and issues. Attending the meetings is a great opportunity to connect with other practitioners in every region of Western Australia.

As of 2015, Injury Matters have made some exciting changes to the group dynamics. Every meeting now has an exciting guest speaker who provides professional development and capacity building on a variety of topics from how to use data in your projects to effective advocacy strategies. Group members are also encouraged to bring along guest colleagues to the meeting who they think will benefit from these professional development snapshots.

Got something to say? Contact Injury Matters here if you would like to attend the meeting as a guest.
