Call for Abstracts for Journal Supplement on Health Outcomes Methods in Rare Diseases
AHRQ’s Effective Health Care Program is sponsoring a special journal supplement on research methods for evaluating health outcomes in patients with rare diseases. Authors are invited to submit abstracts for manuscripts that describe original research or systematic reviews on methodologies for studying patient-centered health outcomes. Abstracts are due by May 31. Submissions must be original and show how the approach applies to one or more problems in the design, analysis, or conduct of rare diseases research. However, manuscripts may derive from studies examining either rare or common diseases. Authors with abstracts that are highly rated by an expert panel will be invited to submit a manuscript for peer-review and potential publication in a 2014 supplement to the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
