8th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation: 

Optimizing Personal and Population Health

December 14-15, 2015 | Marriott Marquis Washington DC

The call for abstracts for the 8th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation is now open. Submit your abstract by August 20.


Dissemination and Implementation Science seeks to promote and rigorously evaluate strategies for integrating evidence-based approaches into clinical and diverse community settings via public health practice, healthcare delivery, and healthcare policy. As still emerging fields, the definitions of dissemination and implementation and the type of research they encompass may vary according to setting, sponsor, mechanisms of action, and target.


The intent of this research is to investigate and address social, behavioral, economic, and organizational factors and policies that impede effective dissemination and implementation of evidence-based clinical, public health, and organizational findings, test new approaches to improve health programming, and determine causal relationships between the strategies to implement interventions and the impacts of their use. Dissemination and Implementation Science is also characterized by a focus on variations in dissemination and implementation processes (e.g., how evidence/interventions are integrated) and how the context (e.g., setting, population, and economic drivers) leads to heterogeneity of results.


The conference seeks novel research or conceptual papers that address any of the topics included within the thematic tracks, with an emphasis on empirical findings for how best to integrate evidence-based interventions within clinical and community settings and/or how to recast the nature or conduct of the research itself to make it more relevant and actionable in those settings.


Abstract authors must select a session type and a track that best fits the subject of their abstract.


Session Types:

  • Individual Oral presentations
  • Panel presentations
  • Poster presentations

Abstract Tracks:

  • Behavioral Health
  • Big Data and Technology for Dissemination & Implementation Research

  • Promoting Health Equity and Eliminating Disparities
  • Health Policy Dissemination and Implementation
  • Prevention and Public Health
