Annotation

Are there better ways to organize, finance and deliver local public health services? Join us for a presentation of “real world” studies of local health departments in states of Connecticut and Massachusetts, two states with highly decentralized public health systems, that explore just that question. Learn about how practice-based research networks (PBRNs) are bringing together researchers and practitioners across the nation to identify strategies that work to maximize population health impact, cost effectiveness and health equity of public health systems.

Learning Objectives

• Describe the primary objectives of Public Health Systems and Services Research.

• List at least three reasons why local health departments should be interested in the work of PBRNs.

• Recognize how findings from CT and MA PBRN studies could be used to impact.

• Recall how local health departments can learn more about PBRN research or participate in PBRN studies.
