Call for Abstracts
Submit an abstract to be considered for presentation at the
7th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation
(December 8-9 in Bethesda, Maryland) co-hosted by AcademyHealth and the National Institutes of Health.
The Planning Committee selected the conference theme of “Transforming Health Systems to Optimize Individual and Population Health” to reflect the opportunity, excitement, and charge to the field that we have in 2014.
Now, more than ever before, the integration of evidence-based practices and service delivery has the capacity to impact healthcare delivery and population health. Therefore, the abstract submission topics and conference structure have been planned to focus our thinking and discussion on the highest priority science - current and future - to help realize this goal.
Abstracts are encouraged for three types of scientific sessions:
- Individual Oral Presentations
- Poster Sessions
Learn more and submit your abstract at www.academyhealth.org/DIconf2014.

Great Member Benefit!
The Personal Continuous Quality Improvement Work Book by Duncan Neuhauser, Sylvia Myhre, and Farrokh Alemi has been used all over the world to teach health professional students about quality improvement. Typically students are given a copy of the work book and asked to use the quality tools to improve some process in their life. Typical choices include more exercise, diet change, watching less television or improving study habits, but many other topics are possible.
