One Mind

2016 ONE MIND summit


May 24-25 | Arlington, VA                                                                                             


The 5th Annual One Mind Summit, that focused on “Science Informing Brain Health Policies & Practice," addressed the problem of why advances in science often precede changes in clinical care by years or even decades. 

Once again, One Mind gathered an international group of 100 notable neuroscientists, policy makers and advocates, including 25 distinguished speakers and panelists, to discuss the many reasons science advances predate clinical care changes  including uncertainties about when the evidence is sufficient to justify changes in practice, challenges associated with obtaining regulatory approval, barriers to communication between researchers and policy makers, and concerns about cost effectiveness.

After examining the reasons, dialogue focused on two specific examples:

  • The implementation of science-informed screening tools for mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) 
  • Post-traumatic stress (PTS) in emergency health care settings throughout the U.S.

The successful conversation had around these two cases will serve as a collaborative roadmap to accelerate the translation of science for other brain and mental health illnesses in the future and served as the foundation to the article published in the March 2017 issue of the Journal of Neurotrauma, titled "The 5th Annual One Mind Summit: Lessons Learned About "Science Informing Brain Health Policies and Practice". Complete access to the published article is available here

Our keynote speaker, Tom Insel provided intuitive, progressive and stimulating ideas in his address, “Moving Practices to Research.”   

A big thank you to our two moderators, Mr. Stephen Johnson and Dr. Ramona Hicks. The immense success of the summit was greatly contributed to their efforts not only during, but prior to, with in-depth research and planning time put in. It was noticeable throughout the five panels.
