The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), an independent, not-for-profit, private entity established by the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, has committed $26 million over two years to a new Pilot Projects Grant Program. For this program, PCORI is interested in 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. PCORI will support requests of up to $250,000 in direct costs per year, for two years.
OSU researchers are urged to consider this and future opportunities from this new funding source.
