The Dietetics Practice Based Research Network, or DPBRN, conducts, supports, promotes and advocates for practice-based research that answers questions important to dietetics practice. DPBRN members are RDNs who share a common interest in improving patient care through practice-based research or designing research projects that draw from the knowledge and understanding of practicing clinicians. Network members work in variety of practice settings and specialties and include practitioners, researchers and students.
There are many ways to get involved with DPBRN, including collecting data for a research project, suggesting research questions and participating in mentoring. Membership in DPBRN is open and free to all Academy members. To join, members can email firstname.lastname@example.org with "join" and their member number in the subject line.
