PBRNs are groups of primary care clinicians and practices working together to answer community-based health care questions and translate research findings into practice. PBRNs engage clinicians in quality improvement activities and an evidence-based culture in primary care practice to improve the health of all Americans.

AHRQ invites all interested primary care networks to register with the AHRQ PBRN Resource Center (PBRN RC). The PBRN RC provides resources and assistance to Primary Care PBRNs engaged in clinical and health services research. The PBRN RC provides support to registered PBRNs through various methods including a series of web-based seminars and offering technical assistance in research methodology and PBRN organization and development.
