To promote practice-based research that directly informs strategies for improving health care delivery with the ultimate goal of better health and well-being for children and families. We will 1) use community-based participatory methods to engage practicing clinicians, staff, and family advisory boards to define research questions that can be implemented throughout the Nemours network of primary care practices; 2) seek to collaborate with other pediatric primary care research networks to extend research to broader and more diverse populations; and 3) nurture the development of pediatric clinician-researchers by engaging medical students and trainees in all phases of research conduct.
