Agenda at a GlancE

Over the course of three engaging and exciting days, the 2017 Brain-Child-Partners Conference will bring together all stakeholders touched by childhood neurological disabilities to chart a course to promote a better health system, better health outcomes, and promote the transformative impact of brain and child health research in Canada.

Day 1: Monday, November 6, 2017

An exploration of different themes in brain-based developmental disability research through an engaging mix of formats, including talks with "responders," interactive workshops, a Knowledge Translation Innovation Incubator, and a dynamic Marketplace. This will be an opportunity to feature CHILD-BRIGHT's 12 new research projects, research themes, training initiatives, and engagement strategies.

Day 2: Tuesday, November 7, 2017

A day for collaboration and convergence as we look at how patients, researchers, trainees and other stakeholders can work together and create a better future for families and patients with brain-based developmental disabilities through thought-provoking panel discussions, lightning talks, capped off with a fun poster and networking reception. 
Learn more about Day 2 programming.


Day 3: Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Day 3 will showcase cutting-edge insights into the origins and treatment of brain-based disabilities and effective strategies for family support, reflecting the priorities identified by families and other stakeholders that now shape the questions we explore as a community. Our trainees will share their latest research findings along with the programs, projects and cores that form KBHN.

Network partners and interested parties are invited to join Kids Brain Health Network for a discussion about effective partnership and collaboration between investigators and organizations, geared towards improving outcomes for kids with neurodevelopmental disabilities and their families. Join us to explore practical applications for addressing the needs of stakeholders, and how to best engage with the country’s top researchers in developmental neurosciences.
