Date: October 05, 2011
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), a non-profit organization established by Congress through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, recently announced its first major funding opportunity. PCORI, which conducts research on the best-available evidence to help patients and healthcare providers make informed decisions, will commit up to $26 million over two years in support of approximately 40 awards under its Pilot Projects Grant Program.
PCORI is interested in proposals that address: the development of research methods, patient-oriented outcomes instruments, patient-provider communication and other decision-making strategies, building collaborative research teams with stakeholders, translating research findings into clinical practice, stakeholder engagement, and research agenda-setting strategies that can be used in future comparative effectiveness research.
