What is a PBRN?

Practice Based Research Networks, or PBRNs, are defined by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) as "...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."
