Pursuing Funding from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)

Pursuing Funding from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)

On Thursday, December 13, 2012 the CTSI Community Engagement Program and the Center for Effectiveness Research (CCER) of the Children’s Research Institute will host Pursuing Funding from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute – an informational and interactive forum to discuss securing funding from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) and generate ideas for proposals. The forum will be led by Dr. Julie Panepinto and Dr. David Nelson.

Julie Panepinto, MD, MSPH is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics/Hematology/ Oncology/Bone Marrow Transplantation at the Medical College and David Nelson, PhD is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the Medical College. Both have served as grant reviewers for PCORI.

Join Drs. Panepinto and Nelson to hear about their experiences and to:

  • learn about PCORI and the grant application review and criteria
  • gain insights into the criteria PCORI uses for scoring grant applications
  • engage in a discussion to review and score a sample research project
  • participate in generating new ideas and strategies for follow up

Bring topics for discussion! The organizers are interested in talking about potential PCORI project ideas.

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is a non-profit entity established by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010 with a mission to provide funding for research that generates evidence based-information that patients, caregivers and clinicians can use to make informed medical decisions. This type of research would answer questions a patient would ask, such as:

  1. “Given my personal characteristics, conditions and preferences, what should I expect will happen to me?”
  2. “What are my options and what are the potential benefits and harms of those options?”
  3. “What can I do to improve the outcomes that are most important to me?”
  4. “How can clinicians and the care delivery systems they work in help me make the best decisions about my health and healthcare?”

PCORI has a unique funding mechanism requiring applicants to demonstrate strong patient and stakeholder engagement in the development of the proposal and the conduct of the research. In addition, a plan for disseminating the findings is required. Find out more at www.pcori.org
