A Decade of Progress and the Path Forward
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.
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.
This year's theme, A Decade of Progress and the Path Forward, will reflect on the accomplishments of and challenges to the field, and will focus on opportunities ahead. To make large-scale gains in health at a population level, we must consider the application of scientific discoveries to diverse contexts and populations, the power of partnerships, the value of engagement, and the complex fit between evidence and evidence-based interventions and the diversity of community and clinical settings where health and health care is delivered. This conference intends to support collective understanding of the research agenda to incorporate these challenges into D&I research through a combination of plenaries, concurrent and poster sessions that will present research findings and identify the next set of research priorities, setting the field up for the next decade.
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.
