As national leaders in the prevention field we are committed to improving behavioral and primary health outcomes by integrating these with the science and practice of prevention across public, private, and community sectors.
The word Prevention is frequently used in the healthcare profession, but what does prevention really mean when it comes to healthcare? Does it actually improve patient, population, and community level outcomes? Or does it improve the standard of care in behavioral health and primary care?
More importantly, if behavioral and physical healthcare professionals are to incorporate prevention into integrated healthcare nationwide, how do we:
Promote conditions and plan services which improve the quality of life for individuals and communities?
Meet the needs of diverse populations?
Educate future providers?
Succinctly outline and measure the benefits of a newly developed paradigm?
These are the questions we will address during three (3) days of Plenary Sessions, Panel Discussions, and Workshops concentrated in four tracks: (1) Policy Initiatives; (2) Clinical Practice; (3) Administration & Implementation; and (4) Research, Evaluation, and Education.
