Bridging the Gap in Primary Care Research

The Two Dozen Curated Articles to Shape Primary Care Policy and Practice is a product of PCC’s Bridging the Gap in Primary Care Research project, funded by a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award (19760-PCPCC). This two-year project (2021-2022) addresses, in part, shortcomings in the dissemination of primary care research, which can slow down the adoption of research results that can improve care. The project aims to identify important primary care patient-centered outcomes research/comparative effectiveness research and health services research results and engage key stakeholders in disseminating these select, high-impact results in different ways.

PCC is partnering on this project with the North American Primary Care Research Group (NAPCRG), which has vast experience in primary care research and dissemination strategies, including getting input from patients about research priorities and an annual process for crowdsourcing the highest-impact research results (research “pearls”). The 24 research articles on the list were curated by two different groups of experts and leaders, described below.
