May 13, 2019: JGIM Issues Call for Papers on Implementation Science and Quality Improvement

The Journal of General Internal Medicine (JGIM) has announced a call for papers that report findings from research at the intersection of implementation science (IS) and quality improvement (QI). Submissions are due September 3, 2019, and should focus on providing information that healthcare delivery systems need about strategies to improve patient and population outcomes. The research should involve multiple settings or systems and apply rigorous scientific methods to test the effectiveness, quality, or utility of QI/IS methods in routine care.

“These articles will illustrate how foundational knowledge and skills from QI and IS help general internal medicine clinicians, educators, and researchers achieve evidence to anchor high quality and reliable care in a learning health system environment.” — JGIM Call for Papers
