To help stimulate new knowledge relevant to supporting practice improvement and facilitated practice transformation, the Annals of Family Medicine (Annals) is issuing a call for manuscripts that address learning from practice transformation efforts.
Papers are being sought on successes and failures that inform future efforts to improve practice and its system supports and partnerships. Accepted papers will be published in a 2019 supplement to the Annals made possible by the American Board of Family Medicine’s PRIME Support and Alignment Network, part of the federal Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (supported by Funding Opportunity Number CMS-1L1-15-002 from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services). Articles with the potential to assess outcomes, describe methods, or otherwise translate learning from these and other practice transformation models will be considered.
Original research, methodology, and theory papers are welcome. Please include a cover letter that states the manuscript is intended for the practice transformation supplement. All manuscripts are subject to the peer review process.
Manuscripts must be submitted through the Annals’ eJournal Press system no later than Friday, August 31. “Instructions for Authors” and “Instructions for Submitting a Manuscript” are available on the Annals “author” webpage.
