PCORI's Response to COVID-19
Find out about the latest developments, including nine funded research awards that
address the COVID-19 public health crisis, and access related reports and FAQs.
The new Duke University-based study will focus on the benefits of a kidney transplantation outreach program to help patients with kidney failure, while a $78 million funding allocation will support Phase 3 of PCORnet®, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network.
Sharing the results of the studies we fund with the public is a critical part of our work. A recent analysis of our early completed trials showed that the results are reaching the public in a considerably shorter time than those from similar research funded by other organizations.
A PCORI staff-authored paper appearing in The BMJ highlights the process of developing the PCORI Methodology Standards for conducting and reporting qualitative and mixed methods research—two areas central to patient-centered outcomes research.
Findings from a PCORI-funded study in JAMA Cardiology suggest that patients in a self-care program had fewer AHF-related events and improved quality of life than those who received usual care. But, these benefits often did not hold over a long term.
