Successful public health practice-based research networks (PBRNs) will require organizational, financial, and intellectual resources that allow practitioners and researchers to mount relevant studies in real-world public health settings. This brief outlines characteristics likely to be important to the success of public health PBRNs, based on the experience of PBRNs in other practice settings
The Public Health PBRN Initiative is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
