Health Services Research 1-3 July 2014

Health Services Research: Evidence-based practice

BioMed Central, in association with its portfolio of health services research and policy journals, is pleased to announce the first international conference, Health Services Research: Evidence-based practice, that will take place 1-3 July 2014 at King’s College London, UK.

As health services research is a multidisciplinary field, this meeting will have a broad scope and address topics from many viewpoints, with a focus on international health policy but including local health care systems.

With health policies often dictated by politicians, integrating evidence into health service practice remains challenging.  Changes to health services and health policies are all too often implemented without reference to available research evidence.  This conference considers the latest health services research findings, and how the evidence should and can be translated into practice.

Each session will be led by a distinguished leader in the field, and will include both invited speakers and a number of talks by participants selected from the submitted abstracts.

Registrants for the ‘Health Services Research’ conference are entitled to a 15% discount on article processing charges for publications in the BMC Health Services Research, Implementation Science, Human Resources for Health, Health Research Policy and Systems and all other BioMed Central journals. Please email events@biomedcentral.com to receive the APC discount code first before submitting your article. The offer will apply until 3 October 2014  

Conference topics

Topics covered will include:

Covering both high-income and low/middle-income countries.
