20TH NOR­DIC CON­FER­ENCE ON FORENSIC MEDI­CINE - Helsinki, Finland

This joint event comprises the 20th Nordic Conference on Forensic Medicine (NCFM) and the 4th Annual Meeting of the Nordic Association of Forensic Toxicologists (NAFT). The conference will present the latest developments in forensic medicine, toxicology, genetics, odontology and related disciplines.

The theme of the conference, "Getting ready for new challenges in the society", represents new thinking within forensic medicine. In the rapidly changing society, the role of highly educated forensic experts is increasingly important. The experts are needed for the investigation of the consequences of terrorism and the refugee matter as well as for the everyday casework on cause of death and crime.

A challenge within forensic medicine is the continuity and progress of research and education while occupied university posts are decreasing in number. Consequently, the present conference strives to promote networking of professionals from the academia, national institutions, private sector and vendors, in order to make innovations possible together. Numerous lectures, posters and workshops encourage sharing new research results, but the enjoyable social programme is equally important for mutual contacts.

We are happy to host this Joint Conference in the lively city of Helsinki with more than two hundred participants from all the Nordic Countries, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, as well as from other countries. In addition, we have eleven exhibitors/sponsors supporting our conference with their products and know-how.

This conference provides a forum for nurses, social workers, counselors, physicians, advocates, community activists, policy makers and researchers to share their work and engage in dialogue about innovations in research, practice, education and policy that support action to create a violence-free world.  

Special Areas of Focus Include:

The mission of NNVAWI is to eliminate violence by advancing nursing education, practice, research, and public policy

The Nursing Network on Violence Against Women International (NNVAWI) was formed to encourage the development of nursing practice to address the health and social effects of violence in women's lives. NNVAWI was founded in November of 1985 during the first National Nursing Conference on Violence Against Women held at the University of Massachusetts/ Amherst. When international members joined the network, the name was changed to reflect this broader membership (NNVAWI).

Our Mandate

The abuse and exploitation of women is a social problem of epidemic proportions which adversely affects the health and quality of life of millions of women each year. The Network's ethic fosters the ideal of nursing practice designed to provide assistance and support to women in the process of achieving their own personal empowerment. The ultimate goal of NNVAWI is to provide a nursing presence in the struggle to end violence in women's lives.

Priority Goals

 Provide leadership and outreach to nurses and others in the sharing of knowledge and ideas and in generating support for nurses in their work on violence against women.

 Create supportive strategies to mitigate the effects of violence, abuse, and exploitation of women in our society.

 Sponsor international nursing conferences to link researchers, educators, providers and advocates who work in the area of violence against women.

 Network at other major conferences attended by nurses, especially those that focus on women's health and issues of violence.
