The North American Primary Care Research Group (NAPCRG) is a multidisciplinary organization for primary care researchers. Founded in 1972 and oriented to family medicine, NAPCRG welcomes members from all primary care generalist disciplines and related fields, including epidemiology, behavioral sciences, and health services research.
The North American Primary Care Research Group (NAPCRG) is a volunteer association of members committed to producing and disseminating new knowledge from all disciplines relevant to primary care. NACPRG has bi-national governance (US-Canada) and international research vision and outreach. NAPCRG’s Annual Meeting is the premier international forum for presenting new knowledge in primary care and advances in research methodology. NAPCRG is committed to a nurturing, informative and inspiring environment for all members.
NAPCRG will maintain its safe, nurturing, informative and inspiring environment in the face of continued growth while attracting high quality research from all disciplines related to primary care and attracting clinicians and decision-makers.
NAPCRG will increase its financial diversity to improve our ability to carry out the mission of the organization and reduce dependency on the members’ dues and registration income.
NAPCRG will promote primary care research by championing a primary care perspective in research agendas and promoting the science of primary care and advocating for funding for primary care research.
Relationships with other Primary Care Organizations
NAPCRG will define and solidify its strategic alliances with selected national and international organizations to minimize competition and allow organizations to focus on complementary areas of strength and to collaborate effectively in the advancement of primary care.
Application of Research/Transformation of Practice
NAPCRG will be a key organization supporting and providing a forum for presenting new knowledge to guide the ongoing practice redesign and improvement of primary care.
