The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Integrated Substance Abuse Programs and the RAND Corporation co-hosted the annual Addiction Health Services Research (AHSR) Conference in Santa Monica, Calif., on October 25–26, 2005.
The annual conference is a forum for presenting updates on research and practice in the fields of drug/alcohol abuse and health services. It enables both junior and senior researchers specializing in addiction health services research to:
- Share current research findings.
- Interact in an informal setting.
- Speak with national representatives about the current status of priorities and funding initiatives for addiction health services research.
- Review current work and sharpen ideas for future research.
The 2005 conference—The Substance Abuse Services Ecology—focused on:
- The relevance of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) roadmap for health services research.
- Issues in continuity of care and system-level coordination of health services.
- Approaches to cost effectiveness analysis in health services.
- Models of effective research-community partnership.
- Approximately 155 participants attended the conference.
- The conference included:
- Presentations now available on the conference website.
- Breakout sessions with panel presentations of research findings.
- Poster sessions with approximately 30 posters that covered a wide range of health services research.
- A special session for junior investigators to meet with staff from the NIH and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and to explore potential funding opportunities.
- The project staff developed a special journal issue based on the conference themes and proceedings, published in the Journal of Behavioral Health Services & Research in April 2009. Christine Grella, PhD, of the UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs served as guest editor along with M. Douglas Anglin, PhD.
