Registrations for ICOH 2018 in Dublin are now open
The 4th Student Poster Competition at the ICOH Congress 2018 is a forum where students in occupational health will have the opportunity to showcase their original research, meet other students involved with occupational health and safety, and interact with occupational health professionals.
We have an exciting line-up of speakers for: the opening address - who will provide a great start to the conference; keynote address - who will set the context to this diverse meeting; conference dinner - a highlight during last night of the conference; and the Hugh Denehy Oration - an oration in honour of one of ANZSOM's founding father.
This year's theme of "Better Together" recognises the diverse nature of the occupational health community and focuses on bringing health professionals together for an exciting learning and networking experience! Working "better together" will be explored throughout the conference.
ANZSOM strives to provide topics and activities relevant to our occupational health nurse members and this year's Annual Scientific Meeting offers a great hands-on educational experience which includes: a dedicated nursing stream, workshops such as the mental health first aid officer course and CPR update, unique site visits and much more!
The June edition of the member newsletter includes an announcement on nominations for Federal Executive committee positions; ASM2017 session highlights; upcoming branch events, courses, and conferences; and professional opportunities available.
