The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute helps people make informed healthcare decisions and works to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes by producing and promoting high-integrity evidence-based information and research informed by patients, caregivers, and the broader healthcare community.
To that end, PCORI is inviting Letters of Inquiry for its Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards program. Through the program, the institute will award grants of up to $250,000 over two years to projects that encourage the active integration of patients, caregivers, clinicians, and other healthcare stakeholders as integral members of the patient-centered outcomes research/clinical effectiveness research (PCOR/CER) enterprise.
Applications may be submitted by any private or public-sector organization, including any nonprofit or for-profit organization or any unit of local, state, or federal government. All U.S. applicant nonprofit organizations must be recognized by the Internal Revenue Service. Non-domestic components of organizations based in the United States and foreign organizations may apply, as long as there is demonstrable benefit to the U.S. healthcare system and U.S. efforts in the area of patient-centered research can be clearly shown.
LOIs must be received no later than February 1, 2018. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a complete application within forty days of receiving the invitation.
