PHGR was a workforce development activity of the Academic Health Department.
Year 1 (2011-2012). PHGR began as a series of 4 one-hour collaborative learning sessions intended to improve the public's health. Faculty presented an area of their research to health department and community practitioners with a goal of increasing knowledge and practice improvements. The majority of participants increased knowledge. A little over half reported they made a practice improvement.
Year 2 (2012-2013). To increase relevancy to practitioners, PHGR focused on practice-based research to improve the public's health. Research questions initiated from within the health department. Through Grand Rounds, faculty and practitioners refined research questions and engaged in the research process together. The goal was to complete and report at least one practice based research project per year.
