About Us

Founded in 2010 and operating within Brigham & Women's Division of Pharmacoepidemiology & Pharmacoeconomics [DoPE], our resource center supports clinical outreach education programs across the United States, Canada, and beyond. With our trainings and ongoing program support, those educators visit front line clinicians, helping them make the best, evidence-based decisions. And those decisions improve the health of diverse populations, including underserved patients who need it the most.

Our Focus Areas:
We provide expertise and support to organizations that educate clinicians on the best evidence that's relevant to their practices and patients. ​Whether we're training new educators on effective social marketing techniques, helping organizations develop their programs, creating and refining resources and tools to strengthen educators' success rates, helping programs evaluate their impact, or connecting educators through our extensive Partner Network and annual conference series, we're always working to magnify the impact of clinical outreach education.

The National Resource Center for Academic Detailing (NaRCAD) is an initiative supported by an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality grant, and is housed in the Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and PharmacoeconomicsDepartment of Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School
