As part of this year's theme, Making a Difference: Using Patient-Centered Research Results in the Real World, attendees learned about how patients, researchers, clinicians, payers, and others across the healthcare community are working to make health research more useful and relevant. In addition, they heard about the latest results of PCORI-funded research and efforts to promote their use in practice. They also found out how our unique approach to engaging patients and other stakeholders in the work we do is changing the way health research is conducted. Attendees also heard about how PCORI can best serve the healthcare community into the future.
