Director's Letter, Summer 2016
Mike Fischer, MD, MS, NaRCAD Director
Summer is in full swing, but we’re already looking ahead to #NaRCAD2016, our 4th International Conference on Academic Detailing, which we’ll host this fall on November 14th & 15th in Boston. We received a wonderful response to our first-ever call for proposals, with submissions from across the country and around the world, making the 2016 conference our most exciting and community-informed meeting yet.
Our team was inspired by the innovative and diverse proposals we received. Following in the footsteps of previous conference series programming, this year’s applications demonstrated a dedication to improving the quality of care and patient outcomes. #NaRCAD2016 applicants showcased success across a broad spectrum of AD interventions: in outpatient and inpatient settings, in public and private systems, and for a wide range of clinical topics.
We’re thankful to all who applied for #NaRCAD2016, and we encourage those who are just beginning to roll out an intervention to consider applying for next year’s conference.
Along with presentations from our selected applicants, this year’s program will include carefully designed content from leaders in the field, interactive learning sessions, and networking opportunities, including an evening reception.
This year will be your chance to learn about cutting edge interventions being implemented across the globe, to share your unique perspective and experiences, and to collaborate with a thriving community of clinical outreach education colleagues.
In that spirit of collaboration, we’re always eager to hear from you, the members of our learning network. We can support your AD programming with expert techniques training, materials development, evaluation, or by highlighting your work. We’re also dedicated to personally connecting our network members to one another, working to amplify our community’s knowledge, tools, and impact. Take a minute to tell us what resources you need, to explore our Learning Center, or to join the conversation—either virtually, or in Boston in November.
We’ll see you at #NaRCAD2016—registration is now open, and space is limited!
If you have questions, let our team know.
