Colleagues in Early Years Team at NHS Health Scotland, organisers of the national Maternal and Early Years Conference, have let us know that they are looking for abstract submissions under the theme of ‘The Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014′.
Ashleigh Oates, Senior Health Improvement Officer, told me that they are seeking creative, innovative and challenging practice examples to be presented as parallel sessions or at marketplace stands at the event.
This year the emphasis is on sharing examples of work that improves health and wellbeing, and reduces the inequalities of the most vulnerable children and families. Of particular interest is work that is undertaken in partnership with colleagues in other agencies and services.
Full guidance and a submission form, including indicative parallel session themes, can be found on the Maternal and Early Years website.
The deadline for submissions is 12 noon on Thursday 19 March. All submissions should be completed using the formal submission form and sent via email to Lynn Soutar, Programme Assistant, Early Years Team. You can email Lynn.Soutar@nhs.net for further informatation and with any further enquiries.
More information and details of how to register for the conference will follow soon.
The Conference will held at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium on 21 May.
