Abstracts and Products Addressing the Disparity in High-Risk Populations
One of the key features of the 2013 Forum will be the presentation of promising practices that can be applied to community efforts aimed at reducing disparities in diabetes care, i.e., prevention, diagnosis and treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes in high risk populations. These abstracts or products should be specific to diabetes care with key focus on cultural competency, health equity or health literacy as it relates to health care and how this can combat social determinants of health in high-risk populations such as African Americans, Hispanic/Latinos, American Indian/Alaska Natives, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, women, older adults, low income and uninsured persons.
We are seeking abstracts or products that show or address the following as it relates to the Forum's key focus on how cultural competency, health equity and health literacy combats social determinants of health:
- Delivery of Care or Effective Tools for Delivery of Care
- Access to Care
- Research applied with documented results of improved outcomes
- Innovative Research/Hot Topics (Young Investigators are welcome.)
Abstracts should be developed to meet the following review criteria:
- Importance and relevance to Forum goals and objectives
- Compliance to the Forum's purpose to increase attendees' diabetes care knowledge and awareness as it relates to cultural competency, health literacy and/or health equity, to impact populations at highest risk for diabetes
- Innovation and contribution to knowledge base
- Clarity and completeness
- Measurable outcomes
- Capability of replication and sustainability
Submissions must be sent using the "2013 Abstract Submission Form" link below and must be received no later than Friday, July 19, 2013.
All submissions will be reviewed by the Forum Review Committee and notification of acceptance will be sent via email no later than Tuesday, August 20, 2013.
