PRACTICE-BASED RESEARCH NETWORKS (PBRNs) AND THE TRANSLATION OF RESEARCH INTO PRACTICE: The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) seek research proposals from new or established primary care practice-based research networks (PBRNs) to (1) evaluate scientifically-based strategies for translating evidence into sustainable improvements in clinical practice and outcomes, and/or (2) develop, improve, and/or validate research dissemination methods applicable to cancer control in primary care practice. A PBRN is defined as a group of ambulatory practices devoted principally to the primary care of patients, affiliated with each other in order to investigate questions related to community-based practice. This definition includes a sense of ongoing commitment to the research endeavor, and an organizational structure that transcends a single study. This program announcement builds on earlier RFAs from AHRQ (Translating Research Into Practice I and II; Quality Improvement Strategies in Health Care; Partnerships for Quality) and NCI (Research Dissemination and Diffusion Supplement to R01, P01, U01 and U19 NCI cancer control research grants) by focusing on approaches for promoting the translation of research evidence into practice that are effective specifically in community-based primary care settings. In the context of this announcement, research translation encompasses the use of evidence-informed approaches to primary care practice change (e.g., the systematic but as yet untested application of recommendations from the Guide to Clinical Preventive Services;, testing the impact of primary care practice tools developed by AHRQ (e.g., Put Prevention Into Practice;, and evaluating the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based primary care practice tools previously tested and found to be effective and/or efficacious in peer-reviewed research. PBRNs are invited to apply for funds to modify or adapt evidence-based and/or evidence-informed tools and strategies for implementing sound research evidence and to test their use, sustainability and replicability in diverse primary care practices and among various patient populations. Evidence-based tool refers to a tool whose use has been shown to impact practice through systematic testing and/or evaluation in research. Evidence- informed tool refers to a tool where the content is based on science but the use (and therefore the impact) of the tool has never been systematically tested or evaluated in research. Applicants will be required to develop projects that use rigorous scientific methods to determine the impact of the translational effort and to assess the influence of contextual factors on their findings. Project evaluations should include an assessment of appropriate outcomes related to quality of care. A particular interest of AHRQ is the use of information technology (e.g., hand-held devices, electronic medical records, internet applications) in translating research findings into policy and care. NCI is interested specifically in supporting exploratory/developmental dissemination and diffusion research applications that focus on the adoption of evidence-based cancer control interventions within primary care practices. An additional interest of NCI is to explore the applicability of different theories on the dissemination and diffusion of innovation [e.g., Rogers, 2003; Glasgow, 2003] to primary care cancer control practice, using tools developed in controlled trials (e.g., smoking cessation approaches, reminders, motivational telephone calls, etc.). AHRQ and NCI are strongly committed to supporting research in priority populations, which include women, children, elderly, minority, rural, urban, and low-income populations, as well as patients with special health care needs and disabilities. It is expected that results generated from these projects will serve as a basis for planning future, larger-scale (R01) research. The long-term goal of this initiative is to improve the capacity of primary care practices in the U.S. to establish mechanisms to assure that new knowledge is incorporated into actual practice and that its impact is assessed.
