About 15 percent of the U.S. population lives in rural areas and many face difficulty obtaining necessary healthcare services. PCORI is supporting dozens of research studies and Engagement Award projects aimed at improving care and outcomes among rural populations that focus on residents of rural areas and the conditions that impose greater burdens on them than others.
In a new Leadership Perspective, PCORI Executive Director Nakela L. Cook, MD, MPH, notes that stakeholder engagement is at the "heart of our work" and it is now more important than ever as PCORI aims to hear a variety of voices, build trust, and achieve health equity.
Rural America faces many health challenges, from reduced access to health care to living in historically underserved areas. Two PCORI-funded Engagement Award projects provide important lessons in reaching out and including rural residents in patient-centered outcomes research.
We have released a Request for Information to learn about key research topics within Science of Engagement from various stakeholder groups and organizations who participate in research or engage communities. Find out more and submit your responses by November 19.
