Building the Research Community
AHRQ offers many resources to enable and encourage a growing primary care research community.
The Academy for Integrating Behavioral Health and Primary Care serves as a national resource and a coordinating center for people committed to delivering comprehensive, whole-person healthcare. Behavioral Health integration is the care that results from a practice team of primary care and behavioral health clinicians, working together with patients and families, using a systematic and cost-effective approach to provide patient-centered care for a defined population. A special section of the Academy's Web page is dedicated to collaboration.
Practice-based Research Networks (PBRNs) are groups of primary care clinicians and practices working together to answer community-based healthcare questions and translate research findings into practice. PBRNs engage clinicians in quality-improvement activities and promote an evidence-based culture in primary care practice to improve the health of all Americans. Sign up to join the PBRN listserv by emailing the National Center at NCEPCR@ahrq.hhs.gov.
