Network article highlighted by the American Dental Education Association (ADEA)
The network was highlighted by ADEA in its February 2013 issue of the Journal of Dental Education. The authors of the article "Information-seeking behaviors of dental practitioners in three practice-based research networks" conducted an assessment of information-seeking behaviors of 950 dentists participating in PBRNs. The authors concluded that dentists get clinical information from a wide variety of information outlets. The authors also found that typically dentists prefer to get information from printed academic journals, although experienced dentists read other dental information sources more frequently than dentists with fewer years of experience. The authors concluded that dental PBRNs appear to play a significant role in the dissemination of evidence-based information.
