Conference Summary

On behalf of the WDPI 2014 Executive Committee, we would like to thank all delegates attending and presenting at the conference held in Toronto, September 29th – October 1, 2014. The calibre of scientific presentations and posters was extremely high and very competitive, which resulted in a very successful conference on Implementing WDP Knowledge. The conference hosted 270 delegates representing 24 Countries from the five continents with 78 Oral Presenters, 8 Topical Seminars with 4 Oral presentations each, 110 poster presentations, for a total of 220 pieces of research work. Delegate evaluations of the conference were extremely positive and many claimed it was not only one of the best conferences they had attended and participated in, but also they didn’t want it to end! 

Videos and presentation slides of the keynote speakers are available as well as slides from presenters who agreed to share them.

The next WDPI Conference is scheduled for September 2016 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands hosted by the Department of Occupational & Public Health, VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam and Coronel Institute, Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam. For more information: E-mail: events@vumc.nl
