About Us

Founded in 2010, NaRCAD’s innovative, service-delivery model connects busy clinicians to the best evidence through an engaging synthesis of integral clinical information, improving health outcomes. We’re leaders in the “how-to” of establishing new academic detailing programs, as well as evaluating and improving existing ones. The academic detailing programs we partner with serve diverse patient populations, including vulnerable and underserved patients likely to benefit the most.

  • We provide training and support to health care organizations to establish effective academic detailing programs. We’ve trained over 175 health professionals from over 80 organizations.
  • We connect detailers through our Partner Network of programs by sharing best practices in academic detailing–highlighting what works, and what challenges are faced along the way.
  • We provide specialized, highly-interactive training sessions on social marketing, techniques of academic detailing, and the management of academic detailing programs. We stay connected after trainings to ensure that programs have the personalized support they need.
  • We work carefully with each partner organization to evaluate its academic detailing program across multiple dimensions, including measuring the impact of their academic detailing programs.
