In the 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 health care.

As a part of that bridge, research presented at the meeting is featured in a special supplement of Implementation Science, an open access journal that aims to publish research relevant to the scientific study of methods to promote the uptake of research findings into routine healthcare in clinical, organizational or policy contexts.

This supplement has compiled the abstracts for presented papers, panel sessions, and lunchtime discussions from the 9th Annual Meeting on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health: Mapping the Complexity and Dynamism of the Field. It includes research spread across the following nine tracts:

  • Behavioral Health,
  • Big Data and Technology for Dissemination and Implementation Research,
  • Clinical Care Settings,
  • Global Dissemination and Implementation,
  • Promoting Health Equity and Eliminating Disparities,
  • Health Policy Dissemination and Implementation,
  • Prevention and Public Health,
  • Models, Measures and Methods, and
  • Precision Medicine.

Next year’s D&I meeting is scheduled for Dec. 4-5, 2017, in Arlington, Va. The 2017 Call for Abstracts is now open. Submit by July 25, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. EST for the opportunity to showcase your research at the meeting and beyond.
