"Mystery of the Blue Highway"

Patients and providers can play an important role in translating medical discoveries into everyday clinical practice. How can engaging patients, providers and practices make our research more relevant? Engaging providers through practice based research networks (PBRNs) is one way. Patient and community advisory councils are another way? How does it all work? KU Medical Center School of Medicine alumnus and Chief Medical Officer for the Colorado Health Cooperative Jack Westfall, M.D., MPH, explains in his talk "Mystery of the Blue Highway."
