Director's Letter | Mike Fischer, MD, MS
NaRCAD has jumped right into action in 2016! We’ve been getting out of Boston, working with colleagues across the country in a range of settings. As we’ve partnered with state and local public health agencies, long-term care providers, primary-care networks, and other organizations, we’ve seen how the principles of AD can be adapted to fit the needs of different clinicians and patients. The work of our colleagues teaches us how we can best support clinical outreach education, raise its visibility, and improve health outcomes together.
We want to hear how all of you are tackling these challenges, and we hope you’ll share your successes with us. We’re featuring best practices on our blog and connecting partner organizations, and we know that in-person connection at our annual conference is a highlight for many in our field. As we begin preparing for the 4th International Conference on Academic Detailing, we’re inviting you to submit your work for presentation at NaRCAD 2016. We hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to share your successes and challenges—the deadline is approaching fast, so get those submissions in, and feel free to contact the NaRCAD team with any questions about the process. And Save the Date for November 14th & 15th here in Boston—we’d love you to join us at the conference to exchange ideas and strategies with colleagues from across the country and around the world.
At NaRCAD, we’re always expanding the range of services we provide, including our core training series on the techniques of AD, specialized workshops and seminars, and consultation on materials development for AD interventions. Let us know what we can do to strengthen your program and highlight your program successes this year.
Highlighting Best Practices
We highlight what's working in clinical education through interviews, features, event recaps, and guest blogs, offering clinical educators the chance to share successes and lessons learned from around the country & beyond.
