Palmer Receives HRSA Grant Award to Establish Practice-based Research Network

The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has awarded a grant for $310,479 to the Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research (PCCR) to establish a practice-based research network to assess complementary and alternative medicine models of pain management. This is a collaborative research project, with Palmer sub-contracting half of the grant amount ($155,239) to the Jefferson-Myrna Brind Center for Integrative Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pa. The purpose of this collaborative, multi-disciplinary effort is to develop the infrastructure for a comprehensive descriptive database for a variety of pain management approaches, to test data collection protocols, and to establish a network of participating practices, clinicians and patient populations.
