Description: Research and quality improvement work are both integral to identifying best practices to achieve health equity. However, these two processes take different approaches to testing interventions and measuring outcomes.

Intended audience: Researchers, clinicians, care coordinators, policy makers, educators, data analysts, Veteran stakeholders and representatives of vulnerable Veteran groups who are interested in understanding and/or promoting equitable health among all Veterans.
