The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is reopening a funding opportunity focused on strategies for reducing or eliminating opioid use or limiting opioid dose escalation in pain management.
A total of $19 million in funding is open to institutions or organizations with expertise in clinical comparative effectiveness research, patient-centered outcomes research, and clinical and epidemiological research on chronic opioid treatment. Funding will be used for randomized clinical trials comparing two or more alternative clinical pain management strategies. PCORI is particularly interested in research that includes comorbidities, such as mental health disorders and substance use disorders.
Online application for the funding will open on Oct. 4. Applicants must submit a letter of intent by Nov. 1. Applications are due Feb. 7, 2017, and awardees will be announced in August 2017.
