Program Officer in the Healthcare Delivery and Disparities Research program at the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)

Summary of Session Goals:

    • This session aims to provide a case example of the development and implementation of a research advisory board; the Bureau of Sages. The session will walk participants through the process of working collaboratively with patients and stakeholders to write a research proposal, implement the project, sustain it, and then build towards translation and dissemination. We will share lessons learned and discuss future directions.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the differences between quality improvement and research and where they intersect.

2. To describe the PCORI application and merit review process, including an approach to designing patient-centered comparative effectiveness research studies to address key evidence gaps
