The Representativeness of Practiced-based Research Networks: The Case of the American Academy of Family Physicians National Research Network
Study Description and Methods
This study consisted of analyses across five separate national surveys conducted between 2001 and 2004 by the AAFP NRN in distinct clinical areas (bioterrorism preparedness, hepatitis C, hyperlipidemia, pharyngitis, and immunization). Each survey collected data from NRN and non-NRN family physicians. Descriptive analyses and applicable tests were conducted on the survey data in comparisons between NRN and non-NRN family physicians. Additional analyses were also conducted to determine the degree of statistical comparability of AAFP survey respondents to the population of AAFP active members.
