A Practice-Based Research Network Learning Community
COIN develops research capacity by engaging and recruiting practices, identifying and collaborating with investigators, and by training network-members and academics in PBRN methods.
Research is done by transdisciplinary teams that span institutional boundaries and have access to CTSA resources. New knowledge is disseminated through steering committees, at network-wide meetings and convocations, through learning collaboratives that translate research into practice, through Ohio’s unique NetWellness web vehicle, and by innovatively linking practice-based QI and research to maintenance of certification. COIN’s work is undergirded by the research infrastructures of three CTSAs that are invested in COIN’s success.
The Collaborative Ohio Inquiry Network (COIN) is a PBRN learning community that develops the capacity of PBRNs for research, conducts high-impact practice-based research, and translates research into practice.
COIN’s PBRNs are affiliated with 4 academic health centers, 3 of which have Clinical and Translational Science Awards that support PBRN development.
COIN has 8 PBRNs across the 4 sites:
