Evidence Based Medicine and Social Investigation Conference
2013 will mark the third year for this conference. I have attended both of the last two and I am hoping to take in the next one as well. The information that I share now is intended to interest you in this opportunity and to explore the Conference website and possibly to register for it. You should bookmark the Conference url and schedule the dates into your personal calendar.
August 2,3,4 2013 http://evidencebasedmedicineandsocialinvestigation.org/
The third annual E.B.M.S.I. conference is designed for both families falsely accused of child abuse and the professionals and paraprofessionals who work with child abuse cases. The faculty includes physicians and attorneys, expert witnesses and advocates and social service professionals. These experts come ready to work with and learn from each other and the attendees.
The conference curriculum covers the fundamentals of evidence-based medicine and its role in improving how investigators and decision makers handle suspected abuse cases. The goal is to help child protection services truly meet the needs of children and their families.
A service to increase accessibility was offered in 2012 and will be repeated and that is an online broadcast of Conference speakers. You will register and then be given a code so you can listen online if in-person attendance is impossible for you.
The venue once again will be Pacific Life Bible College located at 15030 – 66 A Avenue , Surrey, BC V3S 2A5 CANADA.
It is a convenient venue with adequate facilities for this conference and with some residence facility. The College is located on a 42-acre campus in Surrey, B.C. about 30 minutes from Vancouver, B.C., and 15 minutes from the Canada/U.S. border (Peace Arch Border Crossing). It offers a peaceful, wholesome, suburban setting that’s conducive to study; yet Canada’s third largest city, is readily accessible.
