The Canadian Practice-Based Research and Innovation Network
The Canadian Practice-Based Research and Innovation Network (CP-BRaIN) is a collective of practice-based researchers and innovation leaders across Canada.
The Value of Practice-Based Research
While individual practice-based programs have been successfully established across the country, members agreed that there was immense value in establishing an overall Canadian network to advance practice-based research. As a network, these individual programs are enabled to share knowledge, best practices, resources and successes (e.g., educational seminars, templates, literature, approaches to measuring impact, etc.)
The network allows individual members to share ideas for new initiatives that enable healthcare professionals to engage in practice-based research. Finally, having a collective network with shared goals will also facilitate the potential for future evaluation of the larger impact of practice-based research.
