This December, individuals on the frontlines of dissemination and implementation (D&I) science will convene in-person for the first time in two years to ensure that evidence is used to inform decisions that will improve the health of individuals and communities.

Through a combination of plenaries, workshops, breakout, and poster sessions, the 15th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health, co-hosted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and AcademyHealth, supports the collective understanding of the research agenda, puts forth new findings, and identifies research priorities to set the field up for the next decade. 

To keep everyone as safe as possible, AcademyHealth will be instating mandatory health and safety protocols throughout the conference. This will be a vaccine-required event.

2022 Conference Theme

(Re)Building Better Systems: Being Proactive, Nimble, and Responsive
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.

Orientation Video

This pre-recorded session, "Orientation to the Science of Dissemination and Implementation", provides information about the Conference and an introduction to the field of D&I Science.
