2009 PBRN Conference Information
PBRNs are groups of primary care clinicians and practices working together to answer community-based health care questions and translate research findings into practice.

AHRQ provides PBRNs with grant funding and supports PBRNs through a national resource center, an annual national conference, peer learning groups, an electronic PBRN search repository, public and private listservs, and a dedicated private community extranet. See About for more information on AHRQ and PBRNs and the History of PBRNs.
