About CNPRM 2017

Objectives

The primary objectives of the meeting are to foster collaborative research in Canada and help train research leaders for tomorrow. Practitioners, research investigators and trainees learn about the latest discoveries in maternal, fetal and newborn health research for application to maternal and newborn care and policy.

This year’s program promises to be a unique mix of interdisciplinary collaboration as well as an opportunity for discipline-specific sub-groups to share the latest developments in their own fields. Our conference boasts outstanding national and international guest speakers and provides considerable time for oral and poster presentation of original work from attending participants.
