2016 Montreal


Fifteenth International Conference

The Fifteenth International Conference on Shaken Baby Syndrome/Abusive Head Trauma was held on September 25, 26, 27, 2016 in Montreal, Quebec.

Presenters from twelve countries shared the latest medical research, prevention efforts and investigative techniques. The program featured keynote presenter Ranny Cooper. As the former Chief of Staff for Ted Kennedy, Ranny shared her knowledge and experience in crafting an appropriate message when working with the media. Additionally, three physicians discussed the importance of clinicians sharing their experiences with others not only as a message for prevention but also as a way to process the realities of dealing with these devastating cases.

New at the conference was a Basics Track. Designed for individuals new to the field, experts provided an overview of important topics such as biomechanics, skeletal injuries, mimics of AHT, and investigative basics. This feature was highly successful.
