AHRQ is collaborating with Academy Health and NIH for the 9th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation.
This year’s theme, Mapping the Complexity and Dynamism of the Field, focuses on how effective interventions can be applied to a variety of clinical and community settings, with a long-term evaluation component focusing on decisions about whether interventions should be sustained or discontinued ("de-implemented"). Conference sessions will unpack the dynamism and complexity of dissemination and implementation processes.
Given the breadth of the field and the importance of maximizing opportunities for participants to follow consistent themes throughout the concurrent sessions of the meeting, we are including nine thematic tracks to organize the conference agenda.
- Behavioral Health
- Big Data and Technology for Dissemination & Implementation Research
- Clinical (i.e., Primary, Specialty, Hospital, etc.) Care Settings
- Global Dissemination & Implementation
- Health Policy Dissemination and Implementation
- Models, Measures, and Methods
- Precision Medicine
- Prevention and Public Health
- Promoting Health Equity and Eliminating Disparities
Submit an abstract to be considered for presentation at the 9th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation. In the current environment of rapid change, the field of dissemination and implementation research is challenged with the limits of short-term goals and the complex variety of health and health care delivery settings. The concept of dynamism encourages us to think about how to provide the best possible health information and services over the course of constant and rapid change, to meet individual needs, preferences, and local environments. In addition, new expectations and opportunities exist to make large-scale gains in health at a population level but only if we understand the application of scientific discoveries to diverse contexts, and give attention to the complex fit between evidence and evidence-based interventions and the variety of community and clinical settings where health and health care is delivered.
Abstract Submission Deadline: August 4 at 5:00 pm ET
