We’re excited to announce that NaRCAD is accepting applications to present at the 5th International Conference on Academic Detailing on November 6th & 7th, 2017. We encourage you to submit proposals highlighting work that advances the field of academic detailing and clinical outreach education, describing your successes and challenges, and presenting data, results, and best practices to share with conference attendees and our larger Partner Network community.

B. Panel Discussion: Panel sessions will be presented to the entire conference audience and will run 60-90 minutes, depending on number selected. Panels should include a moderator and 3 panel participants. See what our previous conference panels have focused on and how our panels are run by clicking here.
C. Breakout Session: Breakout sessions take place once on each day of the conference, usually in the afternoon. A chance to really approach challenges in a hands-on, small group environment, our breakout workshops are an opportunity to connect with others and use solutions-based approaches to problem-solving! The average breakout group size is anywhere from 15-35 participants, depending on enrollment, and breakout sessions run for 90 minutes.
Breakout sessions should include substantial interaction between presenters and participants, encouraging attendees to think creatively and work together. Don't forget to include your ideas about supplemental materials, such as visuals, handouts, and more--but please, no Powerpoints! Check our previous workshop materials here.
