Presenters: 
David Gustafson, PhD and Kim Johnson, PhD; Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies (CHESS), University of Wisconsin - Madison
Description: 

The AHRQ’s Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN) Resource Center is hosting a research methodology webinar on September 9, 2015 at 1:30-3:00PM ET.  Drs. Gustafson and Johnson will discuss a recently published AHRQ Resource Document, Using Rapid-Cycle Research to Reach Goals: Awareness, Assessment, Adaptation, Acceleration (PDF - 1.96 MB) which provides resources and advice for conducting rapid-cycle research.  Drawing on the experience of PBRNs, this document describes methods for identifying problems that need to be solved, solutions that work in real world settings and study methods that can accelerate the research cycle. 

This Live series activity, AHRQ Practice-Based Research Network Resource Center National Webinars, from 07/28/2015 - 07/28/2016, has been reviewed and is acceptable for credit by the American Academy of Family Physicians. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. This webinar has been approved for 1.25 elective CME credits

Moderator: Rebecca Roper, MS, MPH, Director, Practice-Based Research Network Initiative, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
