The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) will host a regional workshop at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita, Kansas, March 9-10, 2013. The event, The Power of Partnership in Research: Improving Healthcare Outcomes in Rural Settings will be a highly energized gathering of all members in the health care community. This meeting is designed to help build a patient-centered research community in the central states. Part of PCORI’s foundational commitment is to produce information which improves health and healthcare outcomes, by keeping patients’ priorities firmly in mind.
We welcome patients, caregivers, and local health care leaders from Kansas and the surrounding states (Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Texas and Iowa) to join us in building a patient-centered research community, to learn about PCORI, and guide us on how to conduct “research done differently.”
Attendance is limited, but the meeting will be available via public webcast. PCORI is prepared to support travel and lodging expenses for those requesting assistance.
Please consider joining us in Wichita to discover your place in patient-centered outcomes research. Hear from those who are already doing research differently. Learn the many ways you can be involved in PCORI initiatives. Find potential partners in research. Most importantly, share your story and your vision of research “guided by patients, caregivers and the broader health care community.”
