AHRQ to cosponsor second annual meeting for child health services researchers

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality is cosponsoring the Second Annual Child Health Services Researchers Meeting: The Role of Partnerships (CHSR 2000), to be held in conjunction with this year's meeting of the Association for Health Services Research in Los Angeles, CA. CHSR 2000 will build on the success of last year's CHSR meeting which attracted over 200 participants. CHSR 2000 will be held June 27 from 12:30 to 6:00 p.m., at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel, the main hotel for the AHSR meeting.

In addition to AHRQ, other cosponsors for CHSR 2000 are the Ambulatory Pediatric Association, the American Academy of Nursing, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Health Resources and Service Administration's Maternal and Child Health Bureau, and the National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions.

CHSR 2000 will open with a plenary luncheon, followed by eight breakout sessions. Two of the breakout sessions will focus on getting started in CHSR and cover grantsmanship and other aspects of CHSR career-building. Another two sessions will focus on advanced methods in CHSR. Four other sessions will address social inequalities and their implications for CHSR and children's health care, errors in pediatric medicine, adolescent health services research, and children's mental health and health services research.

Registration for CHSR 2000 is $70. For updated information on CHSR 2000, select Child Health. Or, you may send an E-mail to Joyce Garrison at, or Kim Bastian at
