The Mayo Clinic Health System Practice-Based Research Network (MCHS PBRN) offers a variety of resources. For instance, we can help you:
- Identify collaborators
- Develop a research question
- Work with a regionally based MCHS PBRN clinical research coordinator
Have an idea for improving practice or health outcomes in your patients or community?
- Contact the MCHS PBRN early in the planning process to increase the likelihood that we can help.
- Prepare a short summary that includes:
- A description of your idea
- Any related work that has already been done by you or others
- How you would like to be involved in the development of the idea
- How you would like the MCHS PBRN to assist you
- Contact Lisa M. Schrader or your local clinical research coordinator, who will then bring your idea forward for review.
The ability of the network to assist with your idea will depend on the nature of the project and the types of resources necessary. If the MCHS PBRN isn't the right resource to meet your needs, staff can connect you with other resources.
If you plan to be involved in conducting research, you will want to make your physician and administrative leadership aware of this commitment. Note that before research can be conducted, your study will need to be reviewed by the Mayo Clinic Institutional Review Board (IRB).
