The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) has announced funding for collaborative efforts by groups and individuals, including hospitals, to produce meaningful patient-centered comparative effectiveness research (CER) projects.
The goal of the Pipeline to Proposals Initiative Tier I funding is to build capacity and engage individual patients, researchers, and other stakeholders who want to explore a specific health issue. Awardees, which include individuals or groups, can receive up to $15,000 for development of CER projects.
Interested applicants should submit a letter of intent by Jan. 20.
PCORI also has launched an Ambassadors Program to expand knowledge of and participation in patient-centered outcomes research nationally through appointed individuals and organizational ambassadors. Ambassadors would
- engage with other ambassadors and health care professionals to promote PCORI research and findings;
- work with a national network of patient-centered outcomes research;
- help distribute PCORI research findings; and
- promote PCORI initiatives and programs to stakeholders.
Additional information about funding opportunities can be found on the PCORI website.
