Abstracts submitted should focus on the identification, management or prevention of child abuse and neglect, or Adverse Childhood Experiences. Adverse Childhood Experiences can include but are not limited to household or community violence, poverty, food insecurity, parental or child mental health, household dysfunction and substance use. In addition abstracts that pertain to identifying or improving child or family resilience will be considered.
Two types of abstracts are encouraged:
- Research abstracts presenting original research findings (which includes case reports). These abstracts should include pilot data on either process or outcomes variables; and
- Program abstracts describing ongoing or completed projects; these can include program descriptions which are novel or innovative. Special consideration will be given to abstracts submitted and presented by physicians in training at any level.
Abstracts will be accepted for poster presentations only and will be selected at the discretion of the Abstract Review Committee. Prior publication disqualifies submission to this section however prior presentation is accepted.
Note that authors who attend the NCE must register and pay for the meeting (as well as any additional travel and housing expenses). The Council does not have funds to cover these costs for authors of abstracts.
