Wisconsin Research & Education Network (WREN)

The 2019 WREN Conference will be a thought-provoking afternoon on the importance of practice-based research in the primary care setting, followed by physicians providing their perspectives on adding meaning to your practice through program development. Topics will include intellectual curiosity as the basis for practice to research, maintaining work-life balance, and a residency experience with an innovative research project. Next, a panel of practicing physicians and a medical student will discuss how they wove research activities into their professional lives.

Please join us to learn:

  • Why practice-based research is needed to create the best evidence to care for patients.
  • How participation in practice-based research adds value to your practice experience and can help avoid motivational burnout.
  • The role of practice-based research in creating meaningful and lasting relationships with communities.

Hope to see you there!
