Practice-Based Research Networks
Each provincial/territorial PIHCI network works very closely with their respective Practice-Based Research Network(s) (PBRN).
- Southern Alberta Primary Care Research Network (SAPCReN) supports research relevant to the primary care setting, with a wide range of studies relating to topics such as disease prevention and health promotion, screening and early diagnosis, surveillance, and management of various health conditions.
- Northern Alberta Primary Care Research Network (NAPCReN) supports research relevant to the primary care setting, with a wide range of studies relating to topics such as chronic condition surveillance, management, prevention and screening.
- The Primary Care Ontario Practice-based Learning and Research Network (POPLAR) securely collects and de-identifies electronic medical record (EMR) data to provide information on the vital work primary care does, and to support practices in delivering optimal care across Ontario.
- POPLAR supports seven Ontario Practice-based Learning Networks.
Réseau-1 Québec (R1Q) supports four PBRN networks (Réseau-1 Québec/ Réseau de Connaissances sur les Soins Primaires). Each PBRN has an individual page on R1Q’s website:
- RRAPPL Université Laval
- RRAPPL Université McGill
- RRAPPL Université de Montréal
- RRAPPL Université de Sherbrooke
Each PBRN also has their own website:
- Chaire de Recherche du Canada – Décision Partagée, Application des Connaissances – Université Laval
- Practice Based Research Network – McGill University
- Réseau de recherche en soins primaires (RRSPUM) – Université de Montréal
- Département de Médecine de Famille – Recherche – Réseau de recherche axée sur les pratiques de première ligne (RRAPPL) – Université de Sherbrooke
- The Maritime Family Practice Research Network (MaRNet-FP) conducts and supports primary care research in practice-based settings to directly benefit patients, providers, and the Maritime provinces.
Newfoundland & Labrador
- The Atlantic Practice Based Research Network (APBRN) is a network of primary care providers in Newfoundland and Labrador who collaborate with the Primary Healthcare Research Unit (PHRU) of Memorial University.
