Collaboration for Development.

(Grønlands Sygeplejerskeorganisation),
Grønlands
Lægekredsforening og Greenland Institute of Health Research har hermed
glæden af at indbyde til den 8. NUNA MED – en konference om medicin og
sundhed i Grønland.
Siden 1991 har der ca. hvert tredje år været afholdt NUNA MED konferencer
med 200-250 deltagere, fortrinsvis fra Grønland og Danmark. I 2003 blev
NUNA MED afholdt som en del af ICCH12 med deltagere fra hele det arktiske
område og fra de skandinaviske lande.
Formålet med NUNA MED er
• At præsentere aktuelle grønlandsmedicinske forskningsresultater.
• At sætte aktuelle grønlandsmedicinske forskningsspørgsmål til debat i et
tværfagligt forum i Grønland.
• At fremme samarbejdet om sundhedsfaglig forskning i Grønland mellem
faggrupper og sundhedsdistrikter.
Vi håber at tilslutningen til NUNA MED 2013 vil være lige så stor som ved
tidligere konferencer. Der er stadig behov for at styrke den sundhedsfaglige
forskning i og om Grønland for derved at skabe bedre sygdomsbehandling,
forebyggelse og sundhedsfremme.The Danish Greenlandic Society for Circumpolar Health, Peqqissaasut Kattuffiat (The Greenlandic Nurses Association), The Physicinas Assocciation of Greenland and Greenland Institute of Health Research has the pleasure to invite to the 9th NUNA MED – a conference on medicine and health in GReenland.

NUNA MED 2016 IS NOW OVER. SEE YOU AT THE NEXT NUNA MED CONFERENCE OCTOBER 5. – 7. 2019 IN NUUK.

Since 1991 the NUNA MED conferences have been arranged aproximately every third year in Nuuk with 200-250 participants, mainly from Greenland and Denmark. In 2003 NUNA MED was arranged as part of the ICCH12 congress with participants from all of the Arctic area and and from the Scandinavian countries. Since 2003 the number of participants from countries other than Greenland and Denmark has increased. an increasing number of participants have come from other countries Please see the history page (in Danish) for an overview of the history of the NUNA MED conferences.

The purposes of the NUNA MED conferences are:

  • To present current research results related to health in Greenland.
  • To debate current research questions related to health in Greenland across the health disciplines.
  • To improve collaboration on health research in Greenland between the health disciplines and between health districts.

We hope that the number of participants at NUNA MED 2016 will be as high or higher than at earlier NUNA MED conferences. There is still a need for strengthening of health research in Greenland to improve treatment, prevention and health promotion.

In attachment to NUNA MED 2016 a PhD school will be held with the title ‘Ethics and research in small populations in a changing environment’ September 28. – 30. Further information will follow on this page.

Last abstract submission date is August 15, 2016. For those in need of early accept of abstract, there will be an early absctract deadline April 15. Abstract submission will be possible on this page from February 2016.
