Call for Abstracts: 2018 AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting

The 2018 AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM) is a great opportunity to showcase PCORnet research. ARM, which will take place Jun. 24-26 in Seattle, Washington, is now accepting abstracts for panels on critical and emerging issues in health services research, policy roundtables, research panels, student posters, and abstract sessions. The abstract submission deadline is January 11th.

One of the themes highlighted in ARM’s call for abstracts is “Patient-Centered Research,” including:

  • Sharing best stakeholder engagement strategies to successfully conduct patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR).
  • Generating PCOR/comparative effectiveness research (CER) evidence within PCORnet: Challenges and Opportunities.
  • Developing new PCOR/CER methodology and strategies.
  • PCOR influence on policy and national research directions.
  • Reporting on patient-centered interventions in clinical trials.
  • Designing and testing of individually tailored interventions in research.
  • Engaging patients and families as partners in research studies.
  • Determining value of engagement in dissemination and implementation.
  • Learning lessons from PCORI research.

We hope that many PCORnet networks and studies have the opportunity to highlight their work at this conference. If your abstract is accepted, please contact Jenny Cook on the PCORnet communications team so we can highlight your work. Good luck!
