NCNC presents at NAPCRG PBRN 2016

NCNC is pleased to announce our presentations for the 2016 North American Primary Care Research Group (NAPCRG) Practice-based Research Network (PBRN) conference July 11-12, 2016 in Bethesda Maryland.NAPCRG PBRN 2016

We will be presenting a workshop:

  • “Survey Methods in Practice-Based Research Networks: Tailoring Best Practices to the Survey and your Network

We will have several oral presentations from several of our research projects including the Heart Healthy Lenoir Study which was a collaboration between the PBRNS from UNC and ECU and the ADAPT-NC study which used different dissemination strategies to help practices implement a shared decision making tool for asthma patients which was a collaboration of all the PBRNs in the consortium across the state of NC.

  • Genetic variation associated with blood pressure change among a cohort of African American adults in the Heart Healthy Lenoir trial
  • Race-Specific Patterns of Treatment Intensification among Hypertensive Patients using Home BP Monitoring: Results from the Heart Healthy Lenoir Study
  • Patient’s and Provider’s Perception of Asthma Care from a Statewide RCT for an Asthma Shared Decision Making Dissemination Intervention
  • Strategies for Dissemination of a State-wide PBRN project: Dissemination of Asthma Shared Decision Making by the North Carolina Network Consortium (NCNC)
  • Raising Awareness … Starting the Conversation, Using Shared Decision Making to Treat Vulvovaginal Atrophy
  • Clinical Trials Redesigned: A Novel Approach to PBRN Integration
  • Patient Centered Approach to Identifying Provider and Patient Level Barriers to Care for Sickle Cell Disease: A Qualitative Study
  • Sharing and contextualizing the experiences of 6 practice and community based research advisory boards supporting research at UNC Chapel Hill

Additionally we will present three posters including two of our research studies. The ADAPT-NC project and the Monitor Trial at UNC which compares non-insulin dependent type II diabetics who were randomized to monitor their blood glucose daily with those who do not.

  • Does Facilitated Implementation of Shared Decision Making improve Health Outcomes for Asthma patients? Preliminary Results from a Statewide RCT for an Asthma Dissemination Intervention.
  • Health Literacy and Frequency of Home Blood Glucose Monitoring among Patients with Non-Insulin Treated Type 2 Diabetes
  • Challenges to Engaging Providers in Research Teams: A Glance at Patient Volume
