Using the Pragmatic-Explanatory Continuum Indicator Summary (PRECIS) Model in Clinical Research: Application to Refine a Practice-based Research Network (PBRN) Study William G. Elder , Niki Munk The Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine Nov 2014, 27 (6) 846-854; DOI: 10.3122/jabfm.2014.06.140042 Copyright © 2008 American Pharmacists Association. Each resident submits five required research products: abstract, grant, poster, podium presentation, and research manuscript. The HPRN consists of 58 practices, 120 primary care clinicians and 145 000 residents. Design, setting and participants The High Plains Research Network (HPRN) is a community and practice-based research network spanning 30 000 square miles in 16 counties in eastern Colorado. The National Dental Practice-Based Research Network provides the ideal research context for such a study. 4 This work represents 1 of several studies that investigated the association between the characteristics of teeth with cracks and a variety of conditions, such as tooth symptoms and crack progression.5, 6 ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. Practice-based research network as a research training model for community/ambulatory pharmacy residents. Results: Over a decade, the program has produced 37 graduates, 50 abstracts, 15 grants, and 12 peer-reviewed publications. Defining Practice-Based Research Networks. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), PBRNs are, “…. The group works collaboratively to meet training goals. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality defines a practice-based research network (PBRN) as a “group of ambulatory practices devoted principally to the primary care of patients, and affiliated in their mission to investigate questions related to community-based practice.” 1 PBRNs are arguably promoted as an optimal model to improve frontline health care. The practice-based research network as a model for end-of-life care research: challenges and opportunities The work of PFs is funded from a vari-ety of sources, including academic grants and renewable contracts with … Journal of the American Pharmacists Association. groups of primary care clinicians and practices working together to answer community-based health care questions and translate research findings into practice. Acknowledgments: To Milap Nahata for departmental support of the Ohio State University College of Pharmacy Ambulatory and Community Care Residency Programs; to Kristin Casper, Ruth Emptage, Christopher Green, Tara Green, Phyllis Grauer, Laura Hall, and Jason Kimbrell for their service as preceptors in the program; and to Katherine Kelley for her consultations and research support for the community/ambulatory residents. Program sites participated in both Patient Self-Management: Diabetes and Project ImPACT: Hyperlipidemia demonstration projects sponsored by the APhA Foundation. Practice-based research networks (PBRNs) enable the collection of large amounts of clinical practice data from geographically diverse locations and different practice settings that can be used to accurately characterize patient variables and the practice patterns of providers within the network. The phrases in this definition bring into focus three aspects of quality: services (interventions), targeted health outcomes, and consistency with current knowledge (research evidence).It expresses an underlying belief that research produces the most reliable knowledge about the likelihood that a given strategy will change a patient's current health status into desired outcomes. A Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN) Practice Based Research Network is the group of practitioners and their patients that are devoted to supplying information to a PBR study.
