Bevin K. Shagoury, Communications & Education Director @ NaRCAD
We’ve just wrapped up our Spring Academic Detailing Training here in Boston, and we're excited to share a recap of an important event. With each new class of trainees, we see new ways that academic detailing can improve health outcomes for a variety of topics and populations.
This May 16th & 17th, the NaRCAD team hosted 18 trainees from across the U.S. and Europe. Our trainees represented programs looking to increase STD screening and sex education in Philadelphia, reduce overmedication of elderly long-term care residents across Indiana, teach safer opiate prescribing in Wisconsin, and implement other quality improvement initiatives in Ireland, Denmark, Georgia, Rhode Island, and North Dakota.
Everyone at NaRCAD would like to thank our fantastic, enthusiastic class of trainees for participating. We’ll be keeping in close touch as they go out into the field to implement important academic detailing interventions.
For other members of our community, we hope you’ll consider joining us this Fall at our next 2-day course on September 19th & 20th, 2016--it's the core of what we do. If it helps to convince you, 100% of our trainees from this week's course said they'd recommend our course to a colleague, so save the date, and be sure to register early as space is limited and seats fill quickly.
Registration opens on June 15th-we're looking forward to seeing you there!
Until then, remember: "Good information doesn't disseminate itself."
