Welcome to The Pragmatic Scientist, a new science blog for the Colorado Pragmatic Research in Health (COPRH) learning community.
In August 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and the Adult & Child Consortium for Health Outcomes Research and Delivery Science (ACCORDS) held the first national COPRH conference (or “COPRH Con”). The conference was held virtually over two days, and maintains a publicly accessible platform of the archived content. One of the goals of COPRH Con is to establish a virtual learning community (VLC) of scholars from across the United States - and ultimately internationally - to build a culture and enhance the science of pragmatic research in health.
