Practice Based Research Program
The Practice-Based Research Program fosters collaborative research between community-based practitioners and Northwestern University full-time faculty. The program provides assistance and coordinates activities across Northwestern's two primary care, practice-based research networks:
- The Pediatric Practice Research Group (PPRG), directed by faculty at Children’s Memorial Hospital,
- The Research and Education for Academic Achievement (REACH) Network, directed by faculty in the Feinberg School of Medicine Division of General Internal Medicine.
What are Practice-Based Research Networks (PBRNs)?
PBRNs are groups of primary care clinicians and practices working together to answer community-based health care questions and translate research findings into practice. PBRNs engage clinicians in quality improvement activities and an evidence-based culture in primary care practice to improve the health of all Americans.
