The Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network

Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN)

The CSPC Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN) is one of Canada's largest practice-based primary care research networks and includes membership of family doctors across the South East Local Health Integration Network (SELHIN) region.

The emphasis of our PBRN activities is on chronic disease management and prevention, and on providing family doctors practice level information on their patient population to facilitate improved care and quality of life. Many of our PBRN projects are conducted through the regional Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network (CPCSSN), Canada's first multi-disease chronic disease management data repository.
