Abstract This article describes the practice—research engagement (PRE) that occurred during an action research project conducted in three hospitals in Jordan. The project aimed to develop and test the feasibility of an improved clinical record-keeping system. This article focuses on how relationships were built and evolved over time with national and local leaders and practitioners to facilitate the study, and how this led to a process of health system improvement. The article draws on outcomes and analyses from data collected in field notes, recorded interviews and focus groups. Results showed that the PRE approach assisted people to change as they undertook a process of clinical improvement and health systems development.
