Thank you for joining us as we marked the 10th birthday of the National Prevention Conference at the Sheraton Athlone Hotel on the 23rd and 24th of November. We were booked out a month in advance, with a long waiting list, and we were overjoyed to share our biggest conference programme ever with a full house.
We opened with a special pre-conference symposium ‘5 x 3 x 5′ – Hot Topics in Cardiometabolic Disease and Circulatory Health. It was fascinating to hear from our panel of global experts as they shared their insights on cardiometabolic disease. There was standing room only for this session and it was great to see hundreds in attendance online. A recording of the session can be found HERE.
This year we had a wonderful mix of national and international expert speakers from interdisciplinary backgrounds that all shared their visions on prevention matters. We had more workshop options than ever before; making it hard for delegates to choose just one workshop to attend. We will share as much as we can from all the workshop sessions on the NIPC Alliance Platform.
Prevention really does matter and we were excited to see so many new and familiar faces at the conference. Covering a wide range of topics such as, climate change, health-related legislation, access to latest interventions and therapies and an array of psychosocial determinants, plus risk factors themselves and the bigger picture causes underpinning all of these factors, we hope that the 10th National Prevention Conference helped inspire you, to realise that we can all make a difference.
During the conference we delved into the very latest science, clinical guideline implementation and person-centred approaches applicable to multiple intricately linked long-term conditions. The ever-growing body of data highlighting the interplay between the cardiovascular, renal and metabolic systems strongly supports the call to apply integrated approaches to preventive practice and chronic disease management.
Congratulations to Marwa Said, on winning best poster award for her abstract ‘A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW ON THE EFFECTS OF SEDENTARY BEHAVIOR ON PATIENTS WITH PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE’. Patricia Hall received the runner-up award for her abstract ‘REDUCING RISK BEHAVIOURS AFTER STROKE: AN OVERVIEW OF REVIEWS INTERROGATING PRIMARY STUDY DATA USING THE THEORETICAL DOMAINS FRAMEWORK’. Congratulations to Aishling Clancy for winning the inaugural People’s Choice Award.
A special congratulations goes to Norma Caples, Prof John G. Harold and Dr Joe Gallagher on being presented with Honorary Fellowship Awards 2023.
Presentation slides (that we have permission to share) from the conference are available HERE. These slides are only accessible to Alliance members so remember to log in or register to access.
We thank all our speakers, delegates, sponsors, exhibitors and supporters for their continued support and we hope to see you all again for the 11th National Prevention Conference in the Tullamore Court Hotel, Tullamore, 8th November 2024.
