Primary care practice-based research networks (PBRNs) are groups of primary care clinicians and practices working together to answer community-based health care questions and translate research findings into practice. In 2002, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) awarded developmental grants of more than $3 million to 36 PBRNs.
