Commentary on The 15th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health
The 15th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health is right around the corner on December 11-14 in Washington, DC. This year’s theme is (Re)Building Better Systems: Being Proactive, Nimble, and Responsive, and overall, the focus is on creating new dynamic models for conducting D&I science that respond to the shifting needs of diverse settings, systems, and populations. To this end, there are several sessions aimed at the promotion of equity in implementation science through use of anti-racism and equity frameworks and methods, as well as the incorporation of specific implementation strategies and efforts to promote sustainability. In addition, there are many sessions and posters examining the intersection of COVID-19 and implementation science, for example through the implementation of multi-component interventions, novel methods for public health surveillance, and the dissemination of information (and misinformation). As always, there continues to be a focus on global dissemination and implementation as well as the intersection of health policy and implementation science and the implementation and evaluation of interventions at the patient and system levels. The speakers will also address the future of implementation science and what we can build in the next 15 years of D&I research.
We are excited that the 15th Annual D&I Conference is back in person in Washington, DC and we look forward to connecting with you all there!
