26th Annual NPN Research Conference
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK
Call for Proposal Information
Thank you for your interest in presenting at the upcoming 26th Annual National Prevention Network (NPN) Prevention Research Conference. The conference is dedicated to Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug (ATOD) prevention research and focuses on prevention theory and science; prevention research findings and practical application; as well as innovative approaches and emerging trends. We also value an emphasis on communities in transition; culturally relevant and responsive prevention; sustainability through partnerships, infrastructure, and policies; and a focus on the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Model and Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF).
As previously, the conference is open to presentations on the entire spectrum of topics and issues comprising the substance use disorder prevention field. In addition, the conference plans to feature several topical tracks, and we particularly encourage submission of presentation topics that address these topics. The proposed topical tracks for the 2013 conference are:
If your presentation does not fit into one of the aforementioned topical tracks, please select “other” when completing your submission online.
Every presentation should indicate how cultural relevance and competence are addressed. NPN believes that cultural relevance and competence are essential to the development and delivery of effective prevention tactics and strategies, and these should be integrated into each workshop. Thus, in addition to technical/research merit and topical relevance, presentation proposals will also be evaluated for cultural relevance and competence.
Special consideration will be made for individuals that have not recently presented at NPN if several proposals are received in the same topic/core area.
Proposals that are deemed to be selling products will be asked to present process and findings only and be asked to make use of our exhibit hall for product demonstration and review.
• Prevention Practitioners
Given this diversity, presentations that are targeted for the beginning, intermediate, and/or advanced prevention professionals are all welcomed. When submitting your workshop proposal, you will be asked to note which of these three levels best fits your presentation.
Thank you in advance for your submission. Selections will be announced no later than April 19th, 2012.
