Description of the Complementary Care Practice Based Research Network
Through this academic-industry partnership, formed in July 2020, collaborating researchers now have access to 25 clinical practices across the state of Florida with over 60,000 active patients.
Strengths of the Consortium:
- CC-PBRN offers investigators the opportunity to engage in research with ethnically, racially and geographically diverse populations across the state of Florida.
- Research queries can be conducted using deidentified patient records which assists with hypothesis generation and study feasibility assessments.
- Support services for implementing grant-funded research in real-world practice-based setting. CC-PBRN staff are committed to helping researchers achieve high-quality implementation of clinical trials. CC-PBRN support staff will work with researchers to embed research protocols into clinic workflow and monitor fidelity to the scientific protocol to ensure high quality research.
Existing Resources Developed by CC-PBRN:
- A data repository that tracks patient reported outcomes for medical marijuana and other complementary care approaches
- Infrastructure support for prospective studies; including participant recruitment services; provider advisory board, patient advisory board and data management support services.
- Research-based education programs for clinicians, patients and stakeholders
