Our Research Process
At Bassett Research Institute, our various centers collaborate to serve our rural communities. But how do we go from big ideas to concrete impacts?
First, we look to our communities to identify knowledge gaps that can be used to drive research questions.
We then design a study or program by seeking funding, recruiting participants, collecting data, and forming collaborations.
Collected data is then analyzed and interpreted with relevant descriptive, quantitative, and inferential analysis techniques.
Finally, conclusions are drawn and shared to better inform our communities and drive future scientific discovery in the field of rural health.
