What Is Innovative About PEAs?

Text Description is below the image.

  • There is no other position in health care that unites the community practitioner with the academic researcher like a PEA:
    • PEAs provide the link between the academic center and the community practice and this allows each to be influenced by the other.
    • Good ideas or "best practices" in one practice are cross-pollinated into another via the PEA.
    • PEAs are both "us" and "them" due to their strong ties to the practice and to the academic center.
