PCORI, funded by Congress, dedicated to patients, physicians making better-informed decisions.
Up to $452 million is available to study health care approaches that help physicians, patients and other caregivers make better-informed health choices.
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) announced it is inviting proposals for studies and implementation projects involving comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER). The money comes through PCORI, an independent nonprofit organization authorized by Congress to fund research that provides evidence-based information for patient, clinicians, and caregivers to make better-informed health care decisions.
"With these latest funding opportunities, PCORI proudly continues to fulfill its role as a leading funder of patient-centered, comparative clinical effectiveness research," PCORI Executive Director Nakela L. Cook, MD, MPH, said in a statement. "The research funded through these opportunities will generate sound evidence to help patients, their clinicians and caregivers understand their care options and become more empowered decision makers across a range of health conditions. Projects funded through these opportunities also will generate data and strategies that advance PCORI’s National Priorities for Health."
There are four PCORI funding announcements (PFAs).
“Guided by our National Priorities for Health, PCORI’s latest funding opportunities build on the organization’s success in funding research that that provides patients and other health care decision makers with the information they need to make better-informed choices among their health care options,” Harv Feldman, MD, MSCE, PCORI’s deputy executive director for patient-centered research programs, said in the announcement. “These opportunities also reflect PCORI’s commitment to continuously improving the quality of research methods, stakeholder engagement in research, and enabling the generation of sound evidence to be adopted into clinical practice where it benefits patients, clinicians and health systems.”
