PCORI Board will also vote on 2013 budget during meeting
WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 13, 2012) – The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Board of Governors will hold a public teleconference and webinar on Tuesday, December 18, from 12:00-1:00 p.m. ET. The Board will consider for funding approval PCORI’s initial slate of primary research projects, as well as the institute’s 2013 budget.

These PFAs sought proposals for comparative clinical effectiveness research that will provide patients and those who care for them with the evidence-based information needed to make better-informed health care decisions.
These will be the first projects supported through a recurring funding cycle designed to build a portfolio of patient-centered outcomes research based on PCORI’s National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda.
