Please join us for the 2nd Annual Packard Children’s Health Alliance-University HealthCare Alliance (PCHA-UHA) Research and Learning Collaborative (RLC) Conference: Practice-Based Research and Learning Networks Across the Life Course.  The conference will be held on Monday, June 4th from 7:30 am – 12:05 pm the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center, McCaw Hall in Stanford, California.

This conference seeks to highlight the benefits of utilizing Practice Based Research Networks (PBRNs), which provide a realistic community-based laboratory and are instrumental in bridging the gap between recommended care and actual care for the population that stands to benefit from the recommendations.

3.5 CME credits will be issued for attendees

The conference has three objectives:

  1. Apply strategies and techniques used by established PBRNs to develop collaborative research projects between the School of Medicine and PCHA/UHA.
  2. Examine the resources available for conducting research within a PBRN and identify potential collaborative partnerships.
  3. Evaluate the advantages of collaboration on research efforts in order to bridge the gap between recommended care and actual care in a community setting.

Keynote speakers will share their experiences with PBRNS:

  • Dr. Alexander Fiks, “How to Establish and Expand Research Based Networks in Varied Clinical Settings”
  • Dr. Brenda Reiss-Brennan,  “The Adoption, Diffusion, and Evaluation of the Clinical Integration for Mental Health and Primary Care: A Team-Based Approach”

An optional, non-CME networking session will take place from 1:00 – 3:00 pm.  

We look forward to seeing you!
