    The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is announcing the release of a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) titled, “Validation of Pediatric Patient Reported Outcomes in Chronic Diseases (PEPR) Consortium (U19).”  An overview of the FOA and a description of its structure can be found here.  FAQs and information about an upcoming webinar describing the FOA will be forthcoming, so please check the NIH page for future updates.

    This Consortium will capitalize on recent advances in the science of patient reported outcomes to assess the health of children with a variety of chronic diseases and conditions in clinical research and care settings.  The PEPR Consortium will use the Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) pediatric self-report and parent proxy instruments.

    All investigators interested in patient-reported outcomes in chronic diseases affecting pediatric populations are encouraged to apply.
