Expanding Delivery System Research in Public Health Settings: Lessons from Practice-Based Research Networks

This study examines the approaches used by public health practice-based research networks (PBRNs) to expand delivery system research and evidence-based practice in public health settings. Although some networks have already made progress in translating PBRN research findings into policy and delivery system changes, many additional opportunities exist for PBRNs to move research into meaningful public health action.
