PBRN Research Good Practices (PRGP)

The Practice-based Research Network (PBRN) Research Good Practices, or PRGPs, were developed for the specific context of multi-site research conducted in the clinical practice setting. This PRGP document is the culmination of a mixed-methods research project in which over one hundred researchers contributed their experience, expertise and wisdom to identify research best practices, and then to detail recommendations and strategies to support the primary care research enterprise.


Cross Border Integrated Primary Care Symposium

In 2017, a day and a half invitational event brought together senior level policy makers and clinical decision makers, as well as experts in primary care research from both the United States and Canada symposium.
