KPPEPR is a practice-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.
KPPEPR works to forge partnerships between clinicians, patients, public health professionals, community organizations, and academic researchers. All partners participate actively in the development, planning, implementation, and dissemination of relevant research. 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 build research partnerships between clinicians, patients, public health professionals, and academic researchers.
"Collaboration is the key to transforming healthcare.
KPPEPR's inter-professional approach has put Kansas on the map as a leader in practice-based research."
