Practice-based research is an effective way to better understand our current public health systems and where opportunities for improvement exist. In this one hour webinar, which is part of the Hot Topics series, Glen Mays, PhD, MPH, provides a brief overview of the history and current rationale for practice-based research, an examination of topics and methodologies currently used in the field, and a perspective on where practice-based research should move. He will also talk about how findings from prior studies of public health systems and services can be applied within real-world practice settings, and help identify gaps in the public health evidence base that can be informed through systems and services research.
