This session is presented by the Canadian Primary Care Research Network (CPCRN) as part of the CPCRN Learning Series 2024.

#Session Description

A common problem faced by all is that it takes an average of 12-15 years before the research is taken up into practice. The Canadian Primary Care Research Network is taking leadership to create momentum to learn from and more quickly apply evidence to primary care practice and delivery. This session explores shared solutions for practice-based research and  learning networks to: a) use data to study and understand the nature of the problem (advanced analytics and population insight gear) and b) engage with patients, caregivers and clinicians in co-designing solutions using informed local data and high-quality evidence syntheses (patient, caregiver and provider codesign gear).
