NORA symposium 2003 working partnerships: applying research to practice.
Washington, DC: National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 2003 Jun; :1-160
2003 marks the seventh year of the National Occupational Research Agenda. This year, the Symposium will showcase some exciting research findings, educational products and interventions from the 21 priority areas of the National Occupational Research Agenda. The 2003 Symposium will offer potential solutions and promising avenues of research to meet the many of the challenges that the occupational safety and health community faces in the 21st century. Over the past seven years, the NORA partners have made much progress in advancing etiologic and interventional research, in developing excellent educational products and in establishing valuable partnerships. NORA's success is in large part due to the collaboration between the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health with its partners from industry, labor, government, academia and the occupational safety and health professions. A special feature of the 2003 Symposium is a session on assessment of the effectiveness of the National Occupational Research Agenda since its inception in 1996. This year marks the seventh year of the Agenda and it is time for all of us to join together and discuss how best to evaluate NORA's effectiveness in eliminating work-related injuries and illnesses in American workers and how best to chart NORA's course for its next decade which begins in 2006.
