About the D&I Conference
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. 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, bridges the gap between research, practice, and policy in health and health care.
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.
