10th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health

Quality research generates the evidence needed to optimize health and health care in the United States and elsewhere. However, the full potential of evidence can only be realized if it is effectively incorporated into health practice and policy.

A decade since its inception, the Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health (D&I), co-hosted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and AcademyHealth has become the pre-eminent event to bridge the gap between evidence, practice, and policy in health and medicine.

Join over 1,000 of your peers on the frontlines at the 10th Annual D&I conference to address priorities in the field, grow the research base, and ensure that evidence is used to inform decisions that will improve health and health care.

This year, in an extended two and half day conference, we will be celebrating both the 10 year milestone of D&I, and all attendees in the field, working each day to improve the health of individuals and communities.

The call for abstracts is expected to open in late May and will remain open until late July.

Session Types:

  • Individual oral presentations
  • Panel presentations
  • Poster presentations

Additional information about abstract submissions will be made available in May.

Global Implementation Conference 2017

The biennial Global Implementation Conference (GIC) was launched in 2011 with a focus on “What is Implementation?”. GIC 2013 then moved from the “What” to the “How” of implementation with conference sessions related to the process and tools used to implement effectively in community-based settings. GIC 2015 then expanded this focus further by engaging presenters and delegates in a discussion about the impact of implementation at scale.

For GIC 2017, we are excited to announce the conference theme: Expanding Implementation Perspectives: Engaging Systems”. Specific conference program tracks related to this theme of Systems and Implementation are currently under development and will be announced soon. For more information, click here
