Collaborative, community-based research to promote health and enhance primary care
KPPEPR is a practiced-based research network (PBRN). Traditional PBRNs are composed of a group of clinics or practices working together to solve problems of health care delivery in their communities. The members focus on research that helps determine whether treatments and systems proven to be effective in controlled clinical situations continue to have validity in the real world of community practice. Although the findings of KPPEPR research will have broad application, special attention will be given to projects that concentrate on populations and patients in rural and underserved communities.
The KPPEPR team believes that questions of real-world validity should include active participation of patients and families in all phases of research projects. In fact, KPPEPR is one of the first such networks in the nation to forge research partnerships between clinicians, patients, public health professionals, and academic researchers.
