Health Affairs plans a thematic issue on Alzheimer’s disease in April 2014. We plan to cover a range of topics with the aim of providing “one stop shopping” for our policy-oriented audience. Topics include overview papers on the state of the science of causes and treatment, costs, screening and diagnosis, drug development, medical and non-medical management, caregiver populations, federal and state roles, and more.
Request for abstracts
In addition to the papers we have already invited, we are seeking papers on several additional topics and therefore welcome proposals for papers, analyses, and commentaries on the following topics:
- Exemplary models from around the globe (either individual countries or comparative pieces with lessons for other countries)
- Exemplary state or local approaches to care and treatment
- Opportunities for primary prevention
In order to be considered, abstracts must be submitted by August 1, 2013. We regret that we will not be able to consider any abstracts submitted after that date. Read the rest of this entry »
