The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) has announced new funding for pragmatic clinical trials, large simple trials or large-scale observational studies that compare the relative effectiveness of two or more alternatives for improving patient-centered outcomes.
Up to $1 million in direct costs for each study will be available through the initiative, “Pragmatic Clinical Studies to Evaluate Patient-Centered Outcomes.”
PCORI has a list of priority topics, though any study that addresses critical choices faced by patients, caregivers, clinicians and/or delivery systems will be considered.
Deadline for letters of intent is May 4. Application deadline is Aug. 8, and awards will be announced in January 2017.
