From Disparities Research to Disparities Interventions: Lessons Learned and Opportunities for the Future of Behavioral Health Services (April 6-8, 2011, Arlington VA).
To emphasize the need to prioritize research examining behavioral healthcare disparities, this conference seeks to examine investigative efforts focused on
1) Disparities in behavioral healthcare service access and delivery;
2) Innovative strategies to decrease disparities in diverse populations (gender-based, racial/ethnic minorities) and settings (rural vs. urban; primary and mental healthcare);
3) Disparities in general health care access occurring as the result of the presence of a behavioral healthcare condition;
4) Issues of stigma and cultural salience as they impact service access and delivery, and
5) Healthcare policy and legislative changes impacting behavioral health service disparities.
Deadline: December 3, 2010.
