Women's Health Research Consortium/Practice-Based Research Network

Funding Period: June 2010 - September 2021

BACKGROUND/RATIONALE:
The rapid growth of women Veteran (WV) VA users created demand for a stronger evidence base to better understand WVs' needs and improve their access, use, quality and outcomes of VA care. VA HSR&D sought to systematically build capacity to foster women's health (WH) research to address these critical knowledge gaps by first developing a VA WH research agenda (2004) and then funding the VA WH Research Consortium/Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN) -together, the WH Research Network (WHRN). WHRN (2010-14) was originally designed to respond to broad agenda recommendations to build a Consortium of investigators through training, technical support, mentorship and dissemination and to create a PBRN capable of facilitating multisite recruitment of women Veterans in VA research. WHRN was renewed (Phase 2.0) to leverage knowledge gained from the first phase to further increase focus on interventions, implementation and high-impact (I3) research; strategically focus on key areas of the agenda; further expand the PBRN's capabilities to conduct multisite research by adding more diverse settings; and identify barriers to and facilitators of multilevel stakeholder engagement in VA WH research (2014-16). Given ongoing impacts, WHRN has been extended under an approved concept paper (Phase 3.0) to sustain core functions, support research development in high-priority areas (e.g., suicide prevention), accelerate research impacts, and test strategies to support ongoing transformation of the VA toward a learning healthcare system.

OBJECTIVE(S):
WHRN's current objectives are to: (1) enable conduct of high-quality, progressively actionable WH research, inclusion of WVs, and more systematic analyses of gender differences; (2) further advance VA capabilities for practice-based research, innovation development, evaluation, and implementation using learning healthcare system and multilevel stakeholder engagement principles; and (3) promote multilevel stakeholder engagement in Consortium and PBRN activities and in VA WH research more broadly.

METHODS:
WHRN supports training (direct, web-based, and cyber-seminars), technical consultations (including pre-submission scientific review, access to a professional network of experts), collaborative research development (through national topical work groups), and dissemination support (cyber-seminars, conferences, journal supplements, training) for a national Consortium of VA investigators. The Consortium also supports HSR&D as a clearinghouse and synthesizer of WH research (e.g., web summaries, briefings). The PBRN provides PI technical support in use of the PBRN and trains Site Leads to engage local clinicians, managers and staff in the conduct of multisite research. The PBRN also conducts practice scans (brief key informant organizational surveys) and card studies (assessments of WVs' preferences/experiences). Regular calls among PBRN Site Leads promote collaboration and cross-site learning. Qualitative interviews with WV patients, WH providers, VA leaders, and VA researchers have also been conducted to better understand the conceptual and practical tenets underlying multilevel stakeholder engagement needed to strengthen VA WH intervention capabilities, implementation readiness and spread using evidence-based quality improvement (EBQI), which is now being applied to the PBRN with Consortium and engagement training plans underway.

FINDINGS/RESULTS:
Since its inception, WHRN has met or exceeded its deliverables, and has served as a model for increasing impacts through multilevel stakeholder engagement of VA researchers, providers, staff, leaders, and WVs, leading to WHRN's identification in major VA policy documents as essential to advancing innovation in WVs' health care. WHRN accelerated achievement of VA's WH research agenda through HSR&D, QUERI, and operations funding, leveraging research-clinical partnerships to yield highly responsive stakeholder-driven research and evaluation. The PBRN has grown from 4 to 37 to now 60 VA sites, with over 40 studies underway. The PBRN has also fielded a series of rapid-turnaround practice scans and card studies at the request of operations partners, with over 1,000 women Veterans across over 20 VA facilities providing their perspectives on key topics like complementary & integrative health and culture change. Strategic research development through national collaborative work groups has transformed VA's research portfolio to cover previously unstudied topics in reproductive health, women's primary care, LGBT health, older WVs' needs, and, most recently, WV suicide prevention, as well as work on gender differences and gender tailoring of interventions to mitigate disparities. Projects include major initiatives such as the WH CREATE Initiative, the EMPOWER QUERI Program, and WH Services/QUERI Partnered Evaluation Initiative. WHRN has helped over a dozen VA career development awardees (CDAs) get funded and created a widely-lauded national CDA cyber-seminar series. All PBRN Site Leads have received engagement and EBQI skills training. Multilevel stakeholder interviews revealed consistent interest in increasing engagement in WH research, strategies for achieving greater engagement (e.g., a research repository), and recommendations to improve dissemination of results back to participants.

IMPACT:
WHRN has supported advances in employee and Veteran engagement in the context of the learning healthcare system initiative and VA priorities and informed the strategic direction for VA WH research, both in terms of identifying evidence gaps requiring research attention (e.g., for under-studied conditions with high prevalence or equity gaps for women) and pushing the boundaries of methodologic frontiers (e.g., multilevel engagement, diffusion, implementation and spread of best practices). WHRN's impacts led to its explicit integration in the Blueprint for Excellence as essential to accelerating innovations in women's health care, high-level briefings, partnerships with critical partners within and outside the VA (e.g., NIH Office of Research on Women's Health), and a community of practice and network capable of accelerating the generation and implementation of evidence for practice and policy. WHRN-informed work has led to a national VA culture campaign, gender-tailored care models and interventions, knowledge about community care needs driving policy, greater inclusion of women in VA research, and increased awareness of women Veterans' health and healthcare needs, recognized by the highest levels of VA leadership, Veteran Service Organizations, and external agencies. WHRN operational partnerships have also grown substantially, as we work with national program offices to generate rapid data for use in policy and planning (e.g., Office of Patient-Centered Care & Cultural Transformation, LGBT National Program Office) and networks and facilities to feedback data to inform regional and local improvements. Long-term goals are to extend HSR&D's ability to support research-driven improvements in practice and policy in increasingly agile ways and to improve system capacity for addressing gender differences in Veterans' health and health care through learning healthcare system principles in action.
