Date/Time: June 24, 2017

The PHSR IG Annual Meeting is intended for the display of the most rigorous science. The IG welcomes research that investigates the linkage between public health system inputs and population health outcomes and/or that demonstrates innovation in its methodological approach.

The PHSR IG call for abstracts is now closed. In 2017, the IG will present papers that focus on: Research methods, including quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods techniques and new methods, for measuring the impact of public health systems and other factors on population health determinants and outcomes; the impact of collaboration between actors that influence population health, including governmental public health agencies, health care providers, insurers, purchasers, community based organizations, and non-health sectors; and research that evaluates the role of public health as a neutral convener among health-related community partners.

Submissions will have undergone a blind peer review and will be evaluated by the following criteria: Quality and originality; use of rigorous research methods; policy relevance; implications for practice; timeliness; clarity of writing and presentation; and completed or nearly completed research. In choosing among the best abstracts organizers will have also considered how the topics complement one another and provide an array of issues of interest to members.
