The AHRQ’s Practice-Based Research Network Resource Center hosted a webinar on Wednesday, May 27th from 1:30pm-3:00pm EST. Presenters discussed (1) how to distinguish between clinical research and quality improvement (QI), (2) how to identify the need for IRB approval in the grey zone between QI and clinical research, and (3) how bulleted fact sheets and Q&A sessions for patients enrolled in clinical trials can be applied to quality improvement efforts.
