2015 WREN Convocation of Practices: Developing a Road Map for Optimum Patient-Partnered Chronic Condition Management

We know that you get conference announcements all the time. And since your time is valuable, you have to pick and choose carefully how you will spend it. We’re hoping you will choose to spend your time with WREN for a couple of days this fall. Why? Because it’s an opportunity for you to be part of the process of determining which research questions in managing chronic conditions WREN should prioritize.

You see, this conference is not just about telling people what we know. It’s about identifying what we don’t know, and what are the most important things to find out. And we want to do this in a way that is inclusive of all of the individuals with a stake in the matter: patients and caregivers, the clinicians who treat them, the insurers who pay for their care, and the researchers who design the approaches to asking and answering these questions. As a primary care Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN), WREN is ideally suited to bring these voices to the table to develop and answer the research questions that really matter.

There are no registration fees for this conference, and your hotel stay will be covered. Most meals are included too. You just have to get yourself to beautiful Oshkosh, WI, where the Fox River meets Lake Winnebago, and come prepared for an open dialogue on the issues that matter to helping patients manage their chronic conditions.
