Transcript

  • 1. NIDCR - Sponsored Practice-Based Research Networks (PBRN) Designed to gather “real-world” evidence for the prevention and treatment of oral diseases Donald J. DeNucci, DDS, MS Program Director Practice-Based Research Networks National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research
  • 2. Dental Practice-Based Research Networks - Purpose
    • Answer questions facing general dental practitioners in the routine care of their patients
    • Strengthen knowledge base for making clinical decisions
      • Observational studies
      • Clinical trials
      • Establish/use a flexible, adaptable electronic network/platform for connectivity, data sharing, & communication within and between dental and medical networks
  • 3. Dental Practice-Based Research Networks-Objectives
    • Stimulate research proposals from practicing dentists and dental hygienists (i.e., practitioner-investigators)
    • Primary objectives:
    • • Conduct 16-22 short-term clinical studies over 7 years
    • • Emphasis on effectiveness of oral health treatment & disease prevention
    • • Clear & clinically meaningful outcomes
    • Secondary objective: Provide data on disease and treatment trends and obtain estimates of the prevalence of less common conditions
  • 4. Dental Practice-Based Research Networks-Outcomes
    • Draw on experience & insight of practitioners to help identify and frame questions
    • Establishes partnership between practitioners and experienced researchers
    • Rapid translation of findings into clinical practice
    • May reduce costs for certain types of studies when compare with traditional research models
  • 5. General Dental Practice-Based Research Networks
    • Cooperative Agreements
    • Awarded 5/01/2005
    • $75 Million over 7 years
    • Awardees

    • Universities of Washington / Oregon NW PRECEDENT Network
    • TransPBRN entity comprising all three networks CONDOR Network
  • 6. Dental Practice-Based Research Networks-Goals Year One
    • At least 100 dental practices per Dental PBRN will be recruited to participate during the first year of operations.
    • Each PBRN will involve large numbers of practitioner-investigators in at least two population centers.
  • 7. Dental Practice-Based Research Networks-Present Status
    • Presently over 600 dental practices participating after 3 years
    • Each PBRN involves large numbers of practitioner-investigators in at four population centers.
  • 8. Snapshot of PBRNs’ Current Membership, by State

      • submission to Protocol Review Committee
  • 12. Dental Practice-Based Research Networks – Practitioner Profiles
    • PBRN trained and certified dentists and dental hygienists engaged in daily practice
    • From more than one state and population center
    • Representative of gender / racial / ethnic
    • distribution of PBRN region
    • Limited number may be from outside U.S. if
    • standard of dental care is comparable to that in U.S
