The 8th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation is a forum for discussing the science of dissemination and implementation, the 8th Annual Conference aims to grow the research base by bridging the gap between evidence, practice, and policy in health and medicine.

Researchers, evaluators and implementers who are interested in identifying opportunities, challenges, and strategies for disseminating the findings and implementation of research to key stakeholders should attend the meeting to discuss, debate, and explore in-depth approaches to advance dissemination and implementation science. 

The Planning Committee selected the theme, 'Optimizing Personal and Population Health,' for the 8th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation to reflect the twin challenges to the field in this new era of health and health care. First, the concept of precision (or personalized) medicine encourages us to think about how to provide the best possible health information and services to meet individual needs, preferences, and local environments. Second, new expectations and opportunities exist to make large-scale gains in health at a population level. As a result, the integration of evidence-based practices and service delivery has the capacity to improve healthcare delivery and population health. This imperative exists for stakeholders in the US and globally.
