On May 11-12, 2010, NIHCM Foundation hosted a meeting of experts in Arlington, VA.
Building a Stronger Evidence Base for Employee Wellness Programs
In the interest of helping to strengthen the evidence base for employee wellness programs and with funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, NIHCM Foundation brought together nearly 40 experts in wellness and research methods to discuss the current state of the evidence and identify new directions for research. The resulting research agenda is intended to guide future research and other activities to encourage and assist employers to implement evidence-based wellness interventions.
