Call for Oral & Poster Abstracts: Society for Medical Decision Making 36th Annual North American Meeting
Medical Decision Making Among Diverse Populations: Advancing Practice, Policy, and Science
October 18 - October 22, 2014 Miami, Florida
Building upon our successful first Asia-Pacific SMDM Singapore meeting, our increased activity to global and international health, the growing interest of our members in cross-cultural research in decision making, and our location in the culturally diverse and vibrant city of Miami, Florida, the theme of the 2014 meeting is Medical Decision Making Among Diverse Populations: Advancing Practice, Policy and Science. In addition to oral abstract and poster sessions for the presentation of original research, special thematic sessions will address issues pertaining to decision making in populations diverse in age, race, ethnicity, as well as region of the world. Special symposia, invited speakers, and debates will address how clinical practice, health policy, and research methods compare across populations, affect health equity, and reveal differences in values and preferences of diverse groups. Attendees will gain an broad perspective on clinical practice, health policy, and decision science as it pertains to diverse populations.
