The LIME Connection Scientific Committee is calling for abstracts that address the theme: Pouhine Poutama: Embedding Indigenous Health Education.

The LIME Connection Scientific Committee, Suzanne Pitama and Tania Huria sought the support of Te Marino Lenihan (Ngai Tuahuriri, Ngati Huirapa, Ngait Huikai)  to help  developed the whakatauki (proverb). Pouhine Poutama into a conference theme that speaks to vertical and horizontal integration of knowledge, understanding and perspective (i.e. curriculum) and expresses, through deliberate juxtaposition, the complimentary and essential union of Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives, knowledge and understanding. Vertical integration refers to the continuum of teaching and learning from Universities to Specialisation, while horizontal refers to connection and collaboration across all Health Sciences.

The Scientific Committee will consider submissions about projects across all areas of Indigenous health and health professional education and Indigenous student recruitment, support and graduation, within universities, specialist colleges and health professional organisations, including:

  1. Research Projects: Papers or posters focused on evidence-based research;
  2. Projects of Interest: Papers or posters highlighting new projects and innovations which may not be research based;
  3. Workshops: Interactive sessions with a focus on clear learning outcomes.

The Committee encourages submissions from:

Abstracts due: 5 April 2019
