PCORI Ambassador Program
Have you participated in a PCORI event or initiative? Are you interested in learning more about patient-centered outcomes research and how to inform your community about making better health decisions? Are you interested in partnering with PCORI to disseminate and implement PCOR research findings?
The PCORI Ambassador Program will unite individual and organizational Ambassadors around the promise of patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR). The goal of the program is to help patients, organizations, and other stakeholders share PCORI’s vision and mission with their communities, participate as full partners in research, and help ensure the sharing and use of information generated from PCORI-funded projects.
The PCORI Ambassador Program will offer tools to:
- Share the PCORI story;
- Connect them with other Ambassadors who share common interests to facilitate the formation of research affinity groups;
- Help position Ambassadors as potential partners in PCORI-funded projects; and
- Advance opportunities to participate with PCORI in a variety of engagement opportunities, including dissemination and implementation of research findings.
The long-term goal of this program is to have Ambassadors in every state, extending the reach of our engagement efforts and expanding knowledge about and participation in PCOR across the country with the ultimate goal of helping patients and those who care for them to make more informed health decisions.
Learn more about the program below and in our PCORI Ambassador Program Overview.
Note: Although Ambassadors will not speak or act officially on PCORI’s behalf, they will play a vital role in building a patient-centered research community and helping to advance our mission.
