Call for Papers: 15th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation

11-14 December, Washington, DC
The 15th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) will reflect on the accomplishments of and challenges to the field and focus on opportunities ahead. This year’s theme, (Re)Building Better Systems: Being Proactive, Nimble, and Responsive, will build upon lessons learned about rapidly changing community health and clinical settings to envisioning new models for conducting D&I science that respond to the shifting needs of diverse systems and populations, and use flexible and rigorous methodologies to anticipate challenges and ongoing change. To make large-scale gains in health at a population level, we must consider the integration of scientific discoveries within varied contexts and populations, in the face of dynamic evidence, competing demands, and diverse stakeholder priorities. This conference intends to support collective understanding of the D&I research agenda to address these challenges through a combination of plenaries, concurrent and poster sessions that will present research findings and set the field up for the next decade.

The abstract solicitation and conference structure have been designed to focus our thinking and discussion on the highest priorities for dissemination and implementation science now and in the future to help optimize health and health care in the U.S. and globally. 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.
