Expanding Delivery System Research in Public Health Settings

Delivery system research to identify how best to organize, finance, and implement health improvement strategies is focused heavily on clinical practice settings, with relatively Iittle attention paid to public health settings where research is made more difficult by wide heterogeneity in settings and limited resources of existing data and measures.

This study  examines the approaches used by public health practice-based research networks (PBRNs) to expand delivery system research and evidence-based practice in public health settings.
