Please join us for the 2nd Annual PCHA-UHA Research and Learning Collaborative (RLC) Conference: Practice-Based Research and Learning Networks Across the Life Course. 

This conference seeks to highlight the benefits of utilizing Practice Based Research Networks (PBRNs), which provide a realistic community-based laboratory and are instrumental in bridging the gap between recommended care and actual care for the population that stands to benefit from the recommendations.

3.5 CME credits will be issued for attendees

The conference has three objectives:

  1. Apply strategies and techniques used by established PBRNs to develop collaborative research projects between the School of Medicine and PCHA/UHA.
  2. Examine the resources available for conducting research within a PBRN and identify potential collaborative partnerships.
  3. Evaluate the advantages of collaboration on research efforts in order to bridge the gap between recommended care and actual care in a community setting.

Keynote speakers will share their experiences with PBRNS:

  • Dr. Alexander Fiks, “How to Establish and Expand Research Based Networks in Varied Clinical Settings”
  • Dr. Brenda Reiss-Brennan,  “The Adoption, Diffusion, and Evaluation of the Clinical Integration for Mental Health and Primary Care: A Team-Based Approach”


The conference is sponsored by the Stanford University School of Medicine and presented by the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Medicine.
