Translating Evidence into Practice
How can public health agencies and their partners most effectively and efficiently keep people healthy and safe, particularly in this era of fewer dollars and people to support public health services?
Public health services and systems research (PHSSR) aims to find those answers - and turn them into results by providing policy-makers and practitioners with information they need to make decisions. PHSSR examines questions that relate to the financing, organization and delivery of public health services – and how those factors translate to population health.
Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the National Coordinating Center for Public Health Services and Systems Research and the Public Health Practice-Based Research Networks (PBRN) National Coordinating Center, both housed at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Ky., collaborate to explore the impact of specific public health strategies on the quality and performance of the United States public health system. Explore PHSSR, from research to results, by learning more about funding opportunities, research findings, resources for information, the field's agenda for the future and how the PBRN program promotes "on the ground" research in the field.
